Find the right words with new safety seminar

Radio Communications

Boost your radio communication knowledge, find out what popular phrase the 2007 Aeronautical Information Manual says should no longer be used under any condition, and learn the three magic words to use when communicating with air traffic control during the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's latest safety seminar, "Say It Right! Radio Communication in Today's Airspace."

A local air traffic controller will be at each seminar to host a Q-and-A session, thanks to the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA).

"NATCA is pleased to be working with the AOPA Air Safety Foundation on such an important venture. The foundation's communication seminar offers pilots a wealth of practical information for communicating with air traffic control," said Paul Rinaldi, executive vice president of NATCA. "This is an ideal event for us to learn from one another and help enhance an atmosphere of teamwork and trust."

The free seminar will start its national tour in January. To find out when it and other Air Safety Foundation seminars will be in your area, click here. No registration is required.

Attending an AOPA Air Safety Foundation can qualify you for the FAA Wings program and save you money through the new AOPA Accident Forgiveness and Deductible Waiver Enhancement.
