Talking on an aviation radio and understanding air traffic control instructions can be one of the most intimidating aspects of flight training. Bob Gardner's "Say Again, Please" teaches readers what to say, what to expect to hear, and how to interpret and react to clearances and instructions, while detailing the airspace system and explaining how the ATC system works. This new Fifth Edition has been expanded and updated throughout to reflect current FAA rules and operating procedures. Chapters in the book cover communication etiquette and rules, understanding radio equipment, emergency situations, and both VFR and IFR communications and clearances. Also included: a concise summary of the FAA's communication facilities and their functions, airspace classifications and definitions, and the FAA's recommended shorthand for copying clearances. The communication requirements for entering, departing, and transiting each class of airspace is explained in detail by following along with the author on "simulated" flights. A full-color sectional excerpt, in an attached fold-out format, is provided for the example flights so readers can review the map while reading the explanation for flying and talking in each area. Readers will learn everything they need to communicate effectively in VFR, IFR, and emergency conditions. The example foldout sectional chart is in full color and is also used for example flights discussed throughout the book. Bob Gardner's conversational-yet-concise writing style in his approach to aviation communications will help increase your comfort level when using an aircraft radio. The book features "talk" examples of typical radio transmissions that explain how the air traffic control system works, as well as present simulated flights that clearly demonstrate correct communication procedures in each class of airspace. This hands-on book covers the following: --The ABCs of communicating --Understanding radio equipment --Communication etiquette and rules --VFR, IFR, and emergency communication procedures --Air traffic control facilities and their functions --Review of airspace definitions --Glossary of pilot/controller communication terms and phrases Let "Say Again, Please" help you learn how to communicate in the air.

This guide for flight instructors presents lesson plans in the form of scenario-based "maneuver briefings." A rich resource for active instructors, these lesson plans are also helpful to CFI applicants preparing their own materi-als. Lesson Plans can also be used as a companion book for flight instructors who are following the principles of scenario-based training taught in Arlynn McMahon's first book, Train Like You Fly: A Flight Instructor's Guide to Scenario-Based Training. Lesson Plans is designed to work in complement with any syllabus and the FAA Airman Certification Standards (ACS). It explains how to teach each maneuver, making the flight instructor's favorite syllabus curriculum even more effec-tive and enjoyable for flight students. Each maneuver briefing features a series of drawings instructors can discuss with their students or replicate in the classroom and an accompanying script to teach from, which includes a story or motivation on the why and how the maneuver is applied in actual flight. Common errors are discussed in the form of keys to success, to posi-tively inspire students to become sound aviation citizens. In addition to the lesson plans, the book includes templates, checklists, and student assignments to build proper flight preparation habits and help determine the student's readiness to act as pilot-in-command. These tools are especially helpful to the flight instructor ahead of the major flight training milestones, such as first solo, solo cross-country, and the checkride.
