Anyone who has come controlled on the Playground will understand this, take San Clemente as an example…
“Inbound for landing, runway 24”
Enter left downwind runway 06
“XXX is on final runway 24”
Pilot continues to land on runway 24
Attention all pilots, Standby is not your magic word to deny ATC requests!! If your asked to change runways and enter the pattern then you do so! I also have screenshots of several pilots who are guilty of this but I’m not going to name names! This is so frustrating for ATC when it’s busy!
