Episode 65 Show Notes

Topic of the show: JEC sent in audio several weeks ago regarding Precision Runway Monitor (PRM) approaches at Atlanta TRACON. On today’s show, we play part 2 of our interview with “OU” from Atlanta TRACON (A80). We discuss the parallel ILS PRM approaches, breakouts, missed approaches, and re-sequencing.

A special thank you to “OU” for an awesome interview and answering listener questions. The professional air traffic controllers at A80 work traffic in and out of one of the busiest airports in the world and they make it look easy!
