Synopsis: Why is it so hard to put an intelligible sentence together when you key the microphone of your aircraft radio? Communication on the aviation radio band is complicated. It's complicated because: --The language of air traffic control is specialized. --You must speak precisely and efficiently, without all the filler and extra words we use in everyday conversation. --Every time you key your microphone, the government and your peers listen to--and evaluate--everything you say. --You have to fly and navigate while talking. Any one of those 3 items takes a lot of concentration, and you are expected to do all 3 simultaneously, with little or no tolerance for error. When you look at the above list, it's no wonder so many student pilots, and even certified pilots, become brain locked when they key the microphone. The mental, and even physical demands of speaking on the aircraft radio are ridiculously high. Learning how to meet those demands takes training, patience, and practice; a lot of hands-on practice. Radio Mastery for VFR Pilots is the training and the practice you need to talk confidently to Air Traffic Control (ATC). From VFR flight in uncontrolled airspace through VFR flight at busy, controlled airports, every situation is covered with real-life examples and plenty of humor. Best of all, each chapter concludes with hands-on practical exercises you can apply in your airplane and at home. If you have been flying miles out of your way simply to avoid controlled airspace, Radio Mastery for VFR Pilots is the solution to your problem. If you have avoided contacting ATC for flight following because you believe it is "too much work," this book will change your mind. Whether you are just learning to fly, or you are a certified pilot, Radio Mastery for VFR pilots is going to open the door to ATC and make you a skilled, confident communicator on the aircraft radio.
