I just want to point out that when you are requested to “say intentions” by an approach controller at your arriving airport , you are requested to say intention. By this I mean either request ILS approach or GPS approach.
“With you” is not a valid intention.
People are under the impression that you can file a flight plan and tell the approach controller “with you” and you will automatically be vectored to the destination airport guide slope. I can tell you that this is not the case.
Approach controllers can not, and I mean physically can not, give you clearance for approach unless you request it explicitly. This is because we do not even have a button for that approach clearance unless it’s requested from a pilot.
