Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This important book brings an air traffic controller's perspective to the mistakes pilots commonly make in controlled airspace. Veteran controller John Stewart has spent years observing pilots display their lack of education, lack of flight preparation, inability to communicate effectively, ignorance of resistance to regulations, and other dangerous flaws. This book is his attempt to help pilots fly more safely in controlled airspace and to introduce them to new and coming air traffic control technology.

Synopsis:

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; little to no preflight preparation; need for better communications; regulations; and TCAs and ARSAs. 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.
