Yesterday I was inbound to LPPT (Expert) and after my 1hour approach I finally got into the ILS cone but then tower told me to make a right 360 for spacing, ok I did that, then they told me to contact approach, I did that. What would be the next thing I should’ve done?
I would announce to the approach controller a “Missed approach”. I’m not to sure why tower would give you a 360 on final but should have given you a go around.
Yeah, that’s what I would have done
Follow their instructions and then PM the controller later just to understand his/her reasoning!
He gave me a right 360 as there was a 747 on final too
but was he behind or in front?
There were 2 approach frequencies at the airport and for some reason they were making me jump back and forth between those 2 freqs.
ok then he should a go around cause if he was behind doing a 360 would probably give you a bigger chance on crashing into him
You may have crossed the south/north or east/west line so they wanted you to contact the frequency in charge of that area!
rather than trying to figure it out PM the controller
that is so strange!!
Yea, that felt weird.
Don’t know who it was.
annoying!! is there a way to find out?
What time was this? If it was yesterday I have no way of finding out!
It was 19Z
Yep, yday, anyways thanks!
Short them a PM, they will explain to you the situation better than us for sure!
Thanks! Can you tell me how you found out?
