If I am at a towered airport in class delta airspace and I'm departing VFR and tell the ground where I want to go, is it implied to the controller that I'm requesting VFR flight following?
Let's say I'm at the Chandler Municipal airport (KCHD), and I'm headed to the Scottsdale airport, which is in another class delta, and I probably need to transit the Phoenix bravo airspace.
I call Chandler Tower up and say:
"Skyhawk 283JS with information sierra, FBO, north departure to Scottsdale airport"
Will the tower controller coordinate flight following for me and assign a squawk based on this request? Or do I need to specifically request "VFR flight following" if I want it?
