Talking on an aviation radio and understanding air traffic control instructions can be one of the most intimidating aspects of flight training. In Say Again, Please Bob Gardner explains how the ATC system works and teaches readers what to say, what to expect to hear, and how to interpret and react to clearances and instructions.

This new fifth edition has been updated throughout to reflect current rules and operating procedures. Chapters cover communication etiquette and rules, understanding radio equipment, emergency situations, and both VFR and IFR communications and clearances. Also included: a concise summary of the FAA’s communication facilities and their functions, airspace classifications and definitions, and the FAA’s recommended shorthand for copying clearances.

The communication requirements for entering, departing, and transiting each class of airspace is explained in detail by following along with the author on "simulated" flights. A full-color sectional excerpt is provided for the example flights, so readers can review the map while reading the explanation for flying and talking in each area. Readers will learn everything they need to communicate effectively in VFR, IFR, and emergency conditions. Includes a bound-in full color example map.

Bob Gardner's conversational-yet-concise writing style will help increase your comfort level when using an aircraft radio. Inside are "talk" examples of typical radio transmissions explaining how ATC works, as well as simulated flights that clearly demonstrate correct communication procedures in each class of airspace.

This hands-on book covers the following:

  • The ABCs of communicating
  • Understanding radio equipment
  • Communication etiquette and rules
  • VFR, IFR, and emergency communication procedures
  • Air traffic control facilities and their functions
  • Review of airspace definitions
  • Glossary of pilot/controller communication terms and phrases

Let Say Again, Please help you learn how to communicate in the air.

For the matter, he actually discusses communication scenarios for all airspace, including when to request flight following and flight watch.
