Request Different Runway/Approach for Landing

Recommended Posts

On a couple of flights, I have used the ATC window to try and request a different runway/approach for landing, after I have received inbound clearance and landing runway. Each time, I have been met with total silence from ATC.


Has anyone else experienced this? Am I doing something wrong? Is there a work around?

Can I ask how you formulated your request i.e. what did you do?


Earlier today I was given landing instructions with a tailwind component of 17 kts, something I'd never accept in TRW, but couldn't see anyway of changing it. Made an into-wind approach but broke off when departing traffic came up at me! (Managed to land successfully with the tailwind though!)


Would be very interested in a solution.
