    Another TEC Route, this time to McClellan-Palomar airport in Carlsbad CA. As we near North County it becomes apparent that the nice weekend weather has brought out a bunch of us pleasure flyers, and our clearance for the visual approach runway 24 only elevates the need to see and avoid. How many times should we request that Approach hand us off to Tower, before we make the switch ourselves? Thanks for flying with us. Wayne, GeezerGeek Pilot
