I’d you’re already cleared for the option, would that be redundant though? We’re obviously a bit limited in communicating this situation to the tower given the our response options. This happened for me today (@Declan_O) was controlling, and I feared the dreaded “you’re already cleared to land, avoid unnecessary reports” command from ATC.
You are not required to announce full stop, but you can to give tower a heads-up if there is another aircraft too close behind you. Don’t announce your position with out “full stop” though, otherwise you end up with the warning.
Not necessarily true. Usually, you wouldn’t need to, but that doesn’t mean you never do.
In short, you announce your position only if you are certain that something is wrong, or if ATC has forgotten about you. E.G. if they clear you to land but you called inbound for touch and go, or if you think they have forgotten to clear you.
