Number 1 Request from ATC

ATC asked that we send this recent Briefing Sheet, normally issued only to airline pilots, to General Aviation (GA) pilots as well. As you can see in the 1-page document, ATC wishes that pilots are aware of the problems caused by not reading back their call sign.

The Briefing Sheet is available here: https://www.faasafety.gov/files/notices/2012/Dec/ATSAP_Briefing_Sheet_(December_20_2012).pdf

Let’s all remember that when operating IFR or at an airport with a control tower or when using VFR Flight Following, including your call sign when responding to an instruction from ATC is the best practice!

Have a safe and enjoyable New Year of Flying!
