FAAST – Safety Tips

Runway Safety Tip
Notice Number: NOTC1943
In this high tech world it’s easy to forget that some aircraft don’t have radios.  These aircraft can operate legally at non-towered airports.  Also, pilots operating at non-towered airports may not have their radios set for the proper frequency. These pilots may be making great radio calls  and since they hear no response, they think the pattern is clear and there is no other traffic. Just because you don’t hear other traffic, doesn’t mean there is none.  Always look for other traffic at both towered and non-towered airports.
