Reminder about approach contact

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that as approach controllers you’re not supposed to contact inbound planes beyond a 50nm radius and above 18,000ft.

Also because you can contact them but they can’t tune to your frequency and respond. I had someone who kept contacting me as I was approaching EHAM earlier today and did so constantly until I was able to reply. Thanks!

What server was this? Training? If it was, you cannot do anything. Just simply ignore it. It is probably someone who has nothing better to do on IF and just spamming people. Have a great day!

Yes it was. Just a reminder, perhaps they weren’t aware! Thanks, you too!
