I had a flight plan set up via world map using a320 and IFR low airways with the destination airport (glasgow) set to automatic approach and runway.
That way I would wait till ATC assigned me a runway in flight, once I got runway instructions I added this and inserted it. It messes the flight up a bit as sometimes the plane turns around and heads back to the 1st waypoint for the approach.
But what I would like to know is I had an option appear on the ATC panel called “Request IFR for instrument fp”
Do I need to select this, I think I still had a flight following so not sure what that option was about?
To add I did select it and all went well but not sure why the option appeared, was it because I changed the flight plan slightly, despite destination being the same?
