Carl is joined by Rick Felty, Tom Frick and Larry Overstreet to answer your emails and get some feedback! We talk extensively about communicating with the tower in Charlie and Bravo airspace.
Rick has released another book: Tabitha Fink, Ninja at Night. It’s a great kids book about being afraid of the dark.
Reader question from ExpertAviator.com Blog:
Controller: “Cessna 123NU squawk 2343, maintain 2000 on departure”
You: “Cessna 123NU, two thousand, squawk 2342?.
Controller: “Cessna 123NU read back correct contact ground on 121.9 for taxi”
Read back correct???
If i got my squawk code and had my VFR flight following en route. My cruise altitude will be flying through Class C airspace and the altitude was approved by the approach. Am i clear to enter Class C airspace or do i have to contact the tower of the Class C before i could enter?
Overheard on a podcast that filing and NOT opening a VFR flight plan still gives them a place to start looking if you don’t show up? How?
What season and episode is the Island Life HGTV Episode with TavernAero In Florida Keys? I cannot locate it for the life of me. Haha love the podcast btw. I’m a student pilot but hope to solo any day. Winter here in NH so your podcast helps keep my head in the game.m when I can’t fly. Thanks! HA! Me neither! THANK YOU!
