How to get ground to activage runway lights?

Recommended Posts

I have simple comms enabled, and when I try to request lighting up the runway with Radio, F5-F1-F1 (ATC-closest airport-Inbound), it never ever works. They'll only turn on the lights after I land there. Then they leave them on after I take off (provided I don't ask for permission to take off). Also I only use ATC for this purpose.



So what am I missing? It should be really easy, and I'd be happier if the runway lights are on always at night, but even if I have to request it, should work when I do.
