What frequency do I call for flight following?

What frequency do I call for flight following?

Use the one appropriate to your departure heading. For example, if you are heading north-ish use 124.35, and if you are going south-ish use 118.1. Don’t worry. If you mess up they will tell you to contact the other frequency.

What does request flight following mean?

Flight Following is the provision of an ongoing surveillance information service (SIS) to VFR flights in Class E and G airspace. This service can provide improved situational awareness and assists pilots in avoiding collisions with other aircraft.

What does VFR flight following provide?

VFR flight following is a request made by a pilot to receive services from an approach or departure control facility. Flight following is a VFR flight receiving radar-like services from a facility. This can include vectors, traffic calls, and weather information.

Does VFR flight following clear you through airspace?

Flight following by itself doesn’t clear you into airspace. If you were looking to transit a Class B for example, you’d need to be explicitly cleared in. Sometimes the controller forgets to use the magic-words and you need to remind them, though.
