short final

Recommended Posts

Now that i am back happily flying my way through the tutorials, i have noticed an interesting little Quirk when requesting a short final; I notice the controller does'nt reply with a "short final approved" or something similar, but just gives you a heading to turn onto. I discovered this in tutorial 3 and this is not a complaint just an observation as at 1st it was confusing because i thought i had been refused. I assume if a short final is declined, the controller makes it clear because as i said earlier the allowing of a short final is'nt actually acknowledged as such. Anyone else noticed this?CheersRod

These are just a couple examples.Rob Abernethy
