Episode 115 Show Notes

Topic of the show: What if a control instruction places you close to another piece of airspace that is controlled by another facility?  Should you call both controllers?  Should you be monitoring both frequencies?  AG and RH try to clear up some of the confusion and give their opinions on best practices to stay safe!  Great questions from PATRON Bravo Yankee!

Get the latest and greatest Opposing Bases T-Shirt!  Only open until 3/15.
