Controller confused about which airport

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I get this often.  I am flying VFR with not fp into KLGA.   I'm 25nm out so I lookup KLGA's Approach freq and put it 124.95.   In the COM1 window of P2A I confirm that it says KLGA App so I make my call:

LAGUARDIA Approach November Seven Whiskey Alpha Twenty Miles East at Four Thousand Five Hundred Inbound for Landing

Controller comes back with:

November Seven Whiskey Alpha good afternoon.  Squwk One Two Zero Zero Expect runway One Five Right Expect to enter on a Right downwind for Runway One Five Right at LOGAN INTERNATIONAL.  Pattern altitude is One Thousand feet

Clearly there is major confusion here.   This happens often.   I was flying out of Logan so I guess they think I am coming back there even though I'm on  LGA Approach freq.

Log can be dowloaded here:  https://snomhf.exofire.net/data/wrongRwy

Oops!!  I just realized I forgot to tell the controller which airport (I'm used to addressing the tower).   I guess this makes sense then although a Laguardia controller should NOT be controlling Logan.   Oh well, a minor bug.   Sorry about that.

Not to mention their radio would not likely reach that far.  LOL
