This important work interprets -- from the controller's perspective -- mistakes pilots frequently make when operating in controlled airspace. Drawing on 20 years experience in aviation as a pilot, instructor, air traffic controller, and FAA supervisor, John Stewart cites examples of situations frequently encountered by controllers that disclose these problem areas: Lack of education: made apparent in pilot inability to correctly operate equipment, execute flight maneuvers, or perform standard procedures -- due either to improper training or inadequate practice. Little to no preflight preparation: Poor planning results in things being done in the air that should have been done on the ground -- leaving pilots "behind the aircraft." Need for better communications: advance filing, correct phraseology, attentiveness -- techniques that can improve communication between pilots and controllers. Regulations: such as cruising altitudes, speed limits, position reporting -- rules so confusing that even many controllers misunderstand them. TCAs and ARSAs: unfamiliarity with operating in terminal airspace -- complicated by pilot resistance. Stewart also explains in detail the equipment that controllers use now, and will use in the future, plus, he reviews several "by-pilot-request-only" ATC procedures that can save you time and money.

Good explinations of ATC, but dated

  • By A Customer from USA on Tuesday, January 26, 2010
  • Pros:
  • Review: I read this book recently, and am surprised to see it still on sale without having been updated. Had lots of good explanations, and made me think of my dealings with ATC in a new way, but still refers to old "control zones" and other types of airspace that no longer exist, needs a re-edit at least to cover the new class A, B, C, etc.
