I can’t find an answer to this query. Apologies if it has already been covered.
I’ve noticed on many occasions (Advanced Server) that when I request a touch and go, I’m first given pattern instructions, followed by a clearance to land rather than clearance for a touch and go or cleared for the option.
When this happens, should pilots just go ahead and perform a touch and go, or should pilots announce ‘correction’ and ask again for a touch and go?
And does anyone have any suggestions to help ATC easily distinguish between the two requests? I appreciate that when its really busy its not easy for ATC to remember what the pilot has requested.
