  • By on Sunday, November 18, 2018
  • Pros:
  • Review: An easy way to understand communications with ATC

  • By George I. from Saint Cloud FL USA on Saturday, February 16, 2013
  • Pros:
  • Review:

Lots of confusing forms

  • By George I. Robb's from Saint Cloud FL USA on Tuesday, January 22, 2013
  • Pros: Reasonably well laid out
  • Review: Too many forms that one is supposed to use.I tried them and was fumbling with paper work more than I was flying the plane.CFI suggested getting rid of them. Ended up getting a CD and am doing a lot better. My CFI commented that my radio skills showed marked improvement.

  • By A Customer on Monday, April 25, 2011
  • Pros: Explains very well how to talk on the radio.
  • Review: An all right source to review all radio communication skills in uncontrolled and controlled environments. The authors tone is a bit condescending to the reader with regards to his experience and use of citing air traffic controllers to basically say, see, you pilots out there are fools for talking in this way. I would rather like to see a more positive attitude to show how things should be said correctly rather then hearing from ATC controllers about how pilots suck in life when it comes to radio communications. Everyone can tell you how its done wrong tell me how its done right! Once the author finally gets past his own ego trip by citing his attitudes through interviews with air traffic controllers about how the general aviation community cant talk and he finally gets to the correct way to talk on the radios using specific examples from different airports and scenario based training, his book serves as a great way to brush up on radio skills or to learn to talk on the radio CORRECTLY the first time around as a new student. Additionally numerous pages are photocopied and so granny that they are unreadable. This is not acceptable for the price of the book showing it was just rushed to publication rather then thoroughly reviewed prior to release.

Excellent Quick Reference

  • By Thor from La Porte, IN on Friday, December 24, 2010
  • Pros: Concise reference guide. Easy to look up and use. Spiral binding.
  • Review: This is an excellent quick reference and a good book to have in your flight bag. I carry it in mine all the time. As a new pilot it is helpful to refer to the examples in the book when dealing with a busy towered airport environment.

Interesting little guide

  • By David from Sarver PA USA on Saturday, April 19, 2008
  • Pros: Compact. Some useful info.
  • Review: My impression is that it's oddly written. For someone who's trying to feel more comfortable talking with ATC, I'm not sure this really helps that much. It has some good info, and it a good idea, but it could be layed out better and more reader friendly.

What a great reference

  • By Vidal from Prescott AZ on Saturday, February 16, 2008
  • Pros: Quality of content
  • Review: Glad I purchased, took the fear out of advanced instrument radio communications, but also cleared up some confusion I had about basic VFR pattern radio calls. Wish I had it sooner.

Lots of confusing forms

  • By George I. Robb's from Saint Cloud FL USA on Tuesday, January 22, 2013

  • By A Customer on Monday, April 25, 2011
  • Pros: Explains very well how to talk on the radio.
  • Cons: Several pages unreadable due to printing errors. I've seen the authors attitude before in instructors and examiners who have an ego and I don't like to see it as a flight instructor. You can tell someone how to do something correctly in a polite manner or you can be demeaning and egotistic before telling someone how to do something correctly. The latter is a poor way of teaching in my opinion and seems to be where the authors comes from in this book.
