On approach to London Heathrow on TS1, I’ve been asked to contact approach 5 times and the station doesn’t come up under my contactable ATC stations. What do I do???
how far away were you?
Because this was on the Training Server, an area where folks are training or practicing their skills, there’s not much expectation that one should have regarding quality of service. Its best to either continue inbound ensuring that you’re not going to cause any issues with traffic within the vicinity of yourself, or divert to the next nearest airport.
But to answer your question, its likely that the approach frequency is out of contact range, or the frequency is no longer being controlled by a controller. Essentially sending you to an empty frequency.
I was still further away than the channel between France and UK, but it’s working now so all good! Apologies :)
