I recently had a breach in wake turbulence separation during a medevac flight, on approach, where we ended up 2 miles in trail. We were cleared the IFR approach and were only made aware of the traffic ahead when tower advised (we were about 5 miles final). We were able to slow down enough and land long enough to not have to go around. After landing I decided to call the shift supervisor to advise of the breach in wake turbulence separation. I've received a lot of pushback from my company for making that phone call, so my questions are:
Is this an appropriate incident for a pilot to call an ATC shift supervisor?
Would it be more appropriate for the operations manager to make the phone call?
Are there other avenues of reporting the incident that don't involve call the shift supervisor?
Do these types of incidents need to be reporting in a timely manner? could 3-4 days pass before reporting?
If you were able to slow down enough that it wasn't an issue, then why call at all? If it bugged you so much or was a safety concern, you're responsible for the go around? Were you a Light behind a heavy? How bad was the breach? If you forgot to call entering the Zone in an MF, would you want the FSS to call your CP and complain about you, or would a simple friendly "Hey next time don't forget your entering call" be preferred....
