Talk to air radio and understanding air traffic control (ATC) Tell us that the instructions may be one of the most intimidated aspects of flight training. In Say Again Please Bob Gardner explains how the ATC system works and teaches pilots what to say what to expect, and how to interpret and react to permits and instructions. His conversational, but concise writing style will help to increase the level of comfort while using the air radio. Inside there are "typical" radio transmissions explaining ATC operation, as well as simulated flights, which clearly show the correct communication procedures in each class of airspace.
The chapters relate to the labels and principles of communication, understanding of radio equipment, emergency situations, and VFR and IFR communications and permits. It also includes a concise summary of FAA communication devices and their functions, classification and airspace definitions, and the recommended FAA shortcut for copying permits.
Communication requirements for the input, output, and transit of each airspace class are explained in detail, along with the author on "simulated" flights. For example flights, a color slice of the fragment was provided so that readers can view the map while reading explanations about flying and speaking in each area. Readers will find out everything they need to communicate effectively under VFR, IFR and emergency conditions. Contains a pasted full sample map.
A conversational, yet concise style of writing Bob Gardner will help to increase the level of comfort while using the air radio.
