IMPORTANCE OF GREAT RADIO SKILLS

Great radio skills enhance flying safety and mitigate the risk to the flying public. In addition, a pilot that communicates effectively, clearly and concisely easily builds a mutually beneficial level of confidence and trust with Air Traffic Control and other pilots. At TALK2TOWER our licensed air traffic controllers help you master aviation radio skills, an essential element in becoming a safe and successful pilot.

A great pilot excels beyond proficiency with every technical skill available. The number one complaint Air Traffic Controllers describe is the poor radio transmissions used by pilots, from the base level student to the commercial pilot. That’s where we come in.

As with learning any new language, we start at the base level with the Aviation Phonetic Alphabet and rapidly proceed into speaking this new language. The computer-based scenarios are combined with verbal instruction from live Air Traffic Controllers, giving student pilots the best chance to excel in their field.
