Radar contact

I was doing a flight from eindhoven to Stansted but when I contacted Amsterdam departure, it said something like radar contact but I don’t know what it means.

Also a quick thanks to these 2 people for following my instructions as I tried using atc and I wasn’t the best

Great info from Dylan above.

Two things I want to highlight:

  • You only have to contact radar controller when you’re in their airspace. At cruise altitude this is not needed.
  • Once you’re on Radar Contact, the Radar controller sees you and you don’t have to request anything else. You’re in ‘flight following’ now. Just stay on the Radar frequency until you receive frequency approved.
