I'd recommend telling us if you are going to go past the RET.

Is the type of approach not stated on the strip?

As already said, is pretty much depending on the airport regulations found in the Jepp/Lido General part.

Dozens of variations out there though.

"Tower, ABC123, on the ILS 09L"

"Tower, ABC123, 10 miles ILS 25"

"Tower, ABC123, on the micro 27R"

and the most american favourite
"Tower, ABC123, 7 miles out"

HD, do you remember the BA guy who always came up with "Tower, Speedbird blah blah blah, on the left again...call you at four"

......yes, which is input by the Tower controller.

.....your starter for ten.....how does the Tower controller find out the type of approach to enable him/her to correctly annotate the strip?
