student pilot here getting close to my PPL checkride.
I've flown with flight following into and out of Class D airports before, including on my solo XCs. Every time I've gotten flight following, I've either cancelled it myself when nearing my destination, or ATC has terminated it.
I was just wondering if this is what usually happens at Class C airports as well, or if it's more common in Class C for approach to hand you off directly to tower without terminating radar services.
If I was talking to the Class C approach facility, it would seem silly to cancel flight following myself (as I usually do when approaching a class D destination), since I would then presumably need to contact them again in order to enter their airspace. For the same reason, will they typically avoid cancelling on their end?
Thanks for any insight, and I recognize the answer may well be "it depends."
EDIT: Actually, I think I'm probably able to answer my own question. Since, by definition, you're always receiving radar services when operating within Class C, it effectively makes no difference whether you got in there under flight following, or just cold called approach as you got close. Once you're within the airspace, there's really no difference between being on flight following or not - either way they can give advisories and instructions and will eventually hand you to tower. So I imagine they would never say "radar services terminated," because they're not terminating them.
Would still like to make sure that's correct before "answering my own question," though!
