'Say It Right!' proves correct approach for pilots

'Say It Right!' proves correct approach for pilots

Pilot on radio

"All traffic in the area, please advise." "N8121K is taking the active." If you're like many pilots, these are at the top of your pet-peeve list of bad radio calls.

That's probably one reason why the AOPA Air Safety Foundation's safety seminar " Say It Right! Radio Comm in Today's Airspace" is drawing a record number of pilots nationwide. The seminar on February 28 in Portland, Oregon, drew an all-time high: 511.

The seminar provides practical communication tips for pilots of all skill levels.

  • VFR and IFR conditions
  • Emergency situations
  • Towered and nontowered airports

Each seminar also features a live Q-and-A session with a local air traffic controller to add local color and clear the air on how the process should really work.
