I know that, but I give you below an instance of an exchange with an agent AFIS when he is present at Cholet :
me : CHolet from FGVXR hello
"Tower" : Hello FGVXR
me : advisory for circuit please
Tower : runway 03, wind 5 knots, 260 ° call when you are at holding point runway 03
me : rodgers
when I am at holding point 03 :
me : at hoding point runway 03
tower : no traffic call when ready to take off
me : runway 03 line up
when I'm ready to take off :
me : ready to take of... Take off
so, it's remain in VFR, agent afis give me advisory even he don't give me any permission...
WHen AGent Afis isn't present, all the radio are in autoinformation.
