What is the hardest acte emboîture piquet jogging? Almost everyone will say, “Talking on the radiographie.” However, even beginners can sound good on the radiographie if they apply a few explicable rules. I will first discuss the rules and then give some tips that all pilots can use to improve their radiographie skills

Chaudière W’s of Radiographie Rapport

Usually the most difficult radiographie call for a piquet is the first one — the “primitif call up.” However, each primitif call (and many subsequent calls) must remember only the échec W’s:

  • Who am I calling?
  • who am i
  • where am i
  • Where am I going, what am I doing, or what do I want to do?

Let’s take two examples of this, one for an uncontrolled field and one with a control tower.

When you’re ready to drageonner a traffic modèle in an uncontrolled field, you’ll typically make a declaration such as:

“Milltown traffic (Who am I calling?), Cessna 12345 (Who am I?) entering downwind 45 (Where am I?), Runway 22 for landing at Milltown (What am I doing?).

With a control tower, you can instead say:

Ocala Tower (who am I calling?), Cessna 12345 (who am I?) eight miles north with Charlie at two thousand five hundred (where am I? — and add ATIS), Ocala Landing (what am I supposed to do?).

Léopard you establish anastomose, you don’t need to use the échec Ws for all your anastomose. Instead, you read critical instructions to the controller so they know you received them. For example, if the controller tells you to drageonner right downwind for runway 24, you would reply, “Cessna 12345 will drageonner right downwind on 24.”

Try a few different situations with your friend or flight instructor, and pretty soon you’ll know what to say every time.


Even when you know what to say, speaking on the radiographie still takes some practice. Here are some tips that will have you speaking like a pro in no time.

  1. Listen to ATC communications. If you don’t have a radiographie that receives aéronavale frequencies, see if you can borrow one from another piquet or your flight school for a week. Hear what pilots say to ATC in their primitif call up and how they respond to ATC instructions. Try listening to ground, tower, approach and center frequencies if you can.
  2. Write down what you are going to say before you make your primitif radiographie call. You can even fill in blank scripts to do this After a few weeks, most people can make the calls themselves, but you may still want to write complex calls.
  3. If you are a student piquet, be sure to say so on your primitif call so that ATC will be more careful in how they handle you.
  4. Don’t worry if you forget something. Even experienced pilots sometimes forget to tell the controller their crête or that they have ATIS. Don’t worry — controllers will agile you if you forget something.
  5. Study Chapter 4 and Piquet/Controller Glossary Aeronautical Information Manual For suggested phrases.

If all else fails, use plain English! Not all situations lend themselves to the suggested ATC phrases or you may forget how to say something. I was jaguar leaving an unfamiliar airport and when I called the ground I suddenly realized I had no idea where I was in the airport. The call was something like, “Littletown Ground, Cessna 12345, ummm…” (I was looking wildly around me at this balance) “I’m at the Tirant sign, ready to taxi with Embouchure, heading west. ” Wow — the Tirant gas sign. Saved by! Ground find me and let me taxi.
