So, I’ve just flown EGCC to EDDL, and my FPL took me directly over EHAM (Amsterdam) which at the time, had active ATC (TWR and GRD). My cruise is at FL330, so I know I can’t request a transition. So, I monitor TWR frequency instead. I then get asked for my intentions when directly over the airport. I obviously can’t just say, hey yeah I’m just monitoring, so I ask for a transition just so the controller knows that I’m just flying over, as there is no other way to ask. I then get instructed to check the community for tutorials.
What should I have done in this situation because, it can be a little fustrating when the “check tutorials” message pops up. I’ve been flying on IF since 2015!
Thanks and stay safe!
