Ok...this might be a stupid question, but I am going to ask anyway. Is there a way (when just starting out) using ATC to request to stay in the pattern and do a full stop landing? (i.e. take off, circle, and land) Every time I request to take off and "Stay in Pattern" from ATC it sets me up for a touch and go. Do I have to request a different form of departure (such as "Straight Out") to get back to the option of a full stop landing?
