Requesting Runway or on the ILS?

Hey everyone,
Recently, i was on approach with IFATC and was already vectored to the runway, but shortly before i was cleared for ILS approach, the Controller went off, so i tune into Tower and requested the Runway. Was that right or should i had to call inbound on the ILS?

Thanks forward:)

To clarify, were you cleared for the ILS or not?

If you are cleared for the approach, then yes. Report inbound on the ILS.

No , i wasn’t cleared

Then you are correct to request the runway 👍

Ok, you were correct then

Allright, i was confused, because other aircraft called on the ils…

But thanks guys;)

“On the ILS” if you did an ILS approach, “on the visual” if you did a visual approach, and vice versa “on the GPS” if you did GPS approach. If there wasn’t an approach freq or you only requested radar vector then “requesting RWY”

You’re welcome.

GPS approach is no longer a ‘thing’. It was removed in the last update.

Give the above link a read 😀


Thanks, Done:)
