Hi, so I’m just wondering why a lot of people immediately request descent to their respective STARs after checking in literally just about 5-10 minutes after taking off from the airport. I reviewed the User Guide, as recommended by the app, and read no information regarding how to respond to that request.
Usually, the “say approach request” is done during approach, at least for my experience, and seeing that requested to me after I took off from LAX caused me to respond to ATC in a very not timely manner (I play in Training Server as I’m currently mastering the ATC procedures) and I’m a guy who preferred staying at night for long-haul virtual flights.
How should pilots respond when they got that request from the ATC after taking off? Should they respond with “Request Approach”, “Request Flight Following”, or something else? Thank you and I’m hoping for some helpful responses.
