After determining which approach you desire to fly, request clearance to commence the approach.
Clearance for an approach does not constitute clearance to land or give you priority over VFR traffic in the
landing pattern: only the control tower may grant you clearance to land. However, landing clearance can
be relayed to you by the approach control facility (i.e., a radar controller).
NOTE: Selection of an approach other than the one identified by approach control as the approach in use,
may cause a delay in clearance. If not equipped for approach in use, relay that information to the
controller on initial contact with approach control.
NOTE: Because the instrument hood is used to simulate IMC conditions, acquiring the runway
environment is not possible and, therefore, you will always execute a missed approach at the decision
height (DH) or missed approach point (MAP) when under the bag.
