Situation: I’m the tower controller and have two planes in the airspace, both in the pattern working on some touch and gos. The first pilot just took off again and is about to go downwind, the second is on final.
I inform the pilot who is going downwind he’s number two, traffic to follow is on final. Once the pilot on final performs his touch and go, he begins to go downwind himself. Do I then inform the first pilot he’s now number one and cleared for the option? Or is it just assumed?
