Four W & # 39; Aviation Radio Communications


What is the most difficult of a pilot? Nearly everyone will say, "Talking on the radio." However, even beginners will feel better on the radio if they are using simple rules. I will start discussing these rules and give instructions for the pilot to use their radio skills.

Another W Radio Communication

Usually the most difficult to call the pilot is the first – "first call." However, any initial calls (and many subsequent calls) are only memorable for W & # 39; s four:

  • Whom do I call?
  • 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 of the unprotected fields and one with control tower.

When you are planning to enter the tree on an unpaved road, you often create an ad as:

"Milltown (who are you calling?), Cessna 12345 (who am I?) I am 45 to the bottom (where am I?), 22 road up Milltown (what am I doing?).

I have a control tower, you can say:

Ocala tower (who am I calling?), Cessna 12345 (who am I?) 8 kilometers up to two thousand and five hundred and Charlie (where am I? – adding ATIS), getting to the Ox?).

Once you start communicating, you do not need to use WS four for which you communicate. M & # 39; instead, just read the contradictory instructions to the administrators to know that you have received. For example, if the facilitator asks you to enter the bottom right 24, you can say, "Cessna 12345 will step down until 24."

Try different activities from your friends or trainer, and soon you'll know what to say all the time.


Even if you know what to say, talking on the radio is still trying. Here are some suggestions that he will speak to you as the time criticizer.

  1. Listen to ATC services. If you do not have a radio that receives land travel, see if you can rent another pilot or your school to a week. Listen to what the pilot talks to ATC at their first call and how they react to ATC's instructions. Try to listen to the top, tower, approach, and stop if you can.
  2. Write down what you will say before starting the first call. You can even make texts that are insufficient to do this. After a couple of weeks of this, most people can claim for themselves, but you may need to write difficult calls.
  3. If you are a pilot, make sure that the tax on your first call is ATC to be very careful how it affects you.
  4. Don't worry if you forget something. Even pilot pilots sometimes forget to tell the host & # 39; their anchor length or that they have ATIS. Don't worry – the authorities ask you something if you forget.
  5. Study 4 with the Pilot / Controller Glossary in the Aeronautical Information Document.

If everything else fails, use English! Not all events lend to the ATC & AT; or you can forget how to speak. Once I left an unfamiliar aircraft and landed, I realized that I did not know where I was in the airport. The calling took place like this, "Littletown, Cessna 12345, ummm …" (About this time I was going to & # 39; children around) "I am the sign of the Chevron, ready for taxi and Delta, and going west." Chevron! Ground found me letting me a taxi.
