Question: ILS - Visual

Hey everyone!

This may sound dumb or if this was repeated before, but, if you contact approach saying you would like to approach runway XX on the ILS, but you want to switch to a visual approach, what would you say to ATC. Are you even allowed to switch at that point?


You can do that, as long as you haven’t been cleared already. Before that point, I’d suggest sending a “correction, stand by” message, and then proceed with the new request. A controller will most likely understand you wish to change your approach. Happy flying!😁


Okay, makes sense! Thanks for the help!
