Episode 224 Show Notes
Topic of the show: AG and RH revisit wake turbulence avoidance and interactions with control towers that may be placing pilots in a tight spot behind a larger, wake producing aircraft. What can pilots do to prevent inadvertent wake encounters and more importantly, how can they safely convey their needs to ATC? Sometimes telling ATC “unable” is the start of a valuable exchange of information that can keep the plane safe! We also discuss low altitude warnings, helicopter white outs, using cell phones in flight, and what happens if a controller can’t give a briefing. You don’t want to miss this week’s episode!
1. Juliet Sierra asks about how we differentiate flight following and traffic advisories out of the Charlie.
2.Patron Charlie Mike won’t see night time until September in Alaska!
