Tips

Technical Stuff:

  1. “Monitor the freq. before you speak”

  2. Not everything has to be read back. Use “Wilco” often.

  3. Traffic Calls - Use “looking/searchin,” or “Traffic in Sight”


Myths:

  1. “I don’t want to get into trouble, so I don’t talk to ATC” - WRONG

  2. “I thought I was doing you a favor” - Nope

  3. “ATC is too busy to talk to me” - Sometimes, but not likely


Common Questions:

  1. How far out do I call the tower?

  2. When contacting Approach with a request, should I simply state: XYZ approach, the tail number, and stop? OR immediately go for the full request?

  3. Pet Peeves
