For GA pilots, dealing with air traffic control (ATC) can be daunting. From using the correct phraseology and finding applicable NOTAMS to keeping on top of new technology and changing procedures, interacting with ATC adds another layer to an already full portfolio of GA safety considerations.
FAA Safety Briefing provides an airmen’s guide to ATC with tips on how to safely operate in the National Airspace System (NAS). The issue explores how developments in the NAS affect and benefit GA pilots, highlighting some of today’s changes and challenges. It provides tips pilots can use to meet those challenges safely and efficiently and includes articles on changes to the NOTAM system, how controllers are working with pilots to improve communication, and what goes into the establishment of a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR).
