I was expecting to post back with the log, as requested Dave, to see what was happening re. no descent instructions (my previous thread). Well, on this flight there was no such problem (always the way when you want there to be one, for troubleshooting purposes!). However, another little problem did occur, and as I get this too from time to time (and don't understand why - is it a setting I have checked??), I am posting the log in respect of this...
As I approach my destination, ATC tells me to 'maintain current heading', or 'continue present heading'. Which I do - but as with the descent issue, if I just continue flying I hear no more. Eventually I get far enough past the airport that I turn back and land anyway. As with this flight, ATC is quiet until I land. I retune manually to the ground at that point and I am given a gate, but there were no landing instructions.
Presumably after telling me to continue on my heading, PF3 is waiting for me to do something else - but what? I think I carry out all the instructions re. descent and so on.
I'll post a log to the other thread re. descending next time I encounter that, as I say. Meanwhile, be good to know what is going wrong here, and if it is my fault!!
