A Benchwarmers Guide to Aviation — AviatorCast Episode 115
Today’s Flight Plan
Have you heard of flight following? Have you known about it, but don’t use it? Flight Following is a way to be under the watchful eye of air traffic control for traffic and other advisors. With that come a lot of other benefits.
For example, say you are having difficulty or have a few of talking to air traffic control but want to move up to your instrument rating. Flight Following gives you the opportunity to listen to air traffic control while you’re flying, take some lite instructions, and become more comfortable talking to humans on the other side of the line.
Also, flight following carries with it a lot of safety benefits. Say you’re plugging along and come up against an emergency of some kind. If you’re already on frequency with ATC on Flight Following, then you’ll immediately have someone to talk to, they’ll know where you are and who you are. That’s a large benefit!
Those are just a few things we will cover in this podcast on Flight Following. Don’t forget to also see our Youtube Channel, Angle of Attack, for videos of the podcast.
