Quick question about radio call-outs during landing

If you are already cleared to land, are you still required to report when you’re on final? The ATC controller gave me an “unnecessary report” message when I reported that I was on final.

No, if you have already called inbound, you should not report that you are on final

Nope, you don’t need to. The report should only be used if you have not been cleared to let the controller know about your position. It’s also useful if you think the controller has forgotten about you. More below:

When you are clear, do not send reports anymore. ATC will monitor you.
