Why did I get reported?

I was flying in from Frankfurt to the FNF event and when I switched to the approach frequency the atc gave me instructions and i followed it. Then when I requested approach the atc would not reply and I tried that 4 times. Out of nowhere it said that the atc reported me and now I’m down to grade 2. Can anyone help.

Go into your logbook to find out who reported you. Then send them a PM to discuss the matter.

If you’re not sure who to contact we can help you to find the controller.

Also, read this guide.


There’s your problem. You shouldn’t request things more than once. The ATC saw you and isn’t responding for a reason. You should be patient and wait until they respond.

Ok. I did wait about 5 minutes between requesting though also.

Only the controller can assist you so check your logbook and contact them, no need to discuss it further here. It very well could be connection issues or something else.
