I was landing at a 10,000+ ft runway Thursday and before I was cleared to land, I let them know I intended to land long (avoiding a super long taxi). The tower asked me to wait and then came back that I was “approved” to land long. I think that is strange. It is my landing once cleared, right? Overall I don’t care, and I didn’t mind it. Even if they denied me, I would have complied but I’m surprised they have to approve it (or thought they did). It may have been on this forum that I got this idea. I was taught it is my runway, my landing once cleared. Again, not the end of the world.
