Candid Radio: SQL Edition - FUN FUN FUN!!!!!!

OH YAY!!! Its time for another episode of CANDID RADIO where you can sit down with the FAA and listen to just how dumb we sound on the radio and how many errors and mistakes we all make. This should be a great evening of listening to each other talking on the radios, and criticism of both sides of the communication cycle. Cant wait. Controllers and pilots will be present for this evening of banter and fun!

See you all there.



Title:Candid Radio: SQL EditionTopic:A candid review of taped radio calls to improve pilot radio communications to increase safety.

Date and Time:Wednesday, May 15, 2013 , starting at 7:00 pm PDT Download Calendar File

Speaker(s):Dan DyerBrief

Description:Time for everybody's favorite radio game show: Candid Radio. For this event, we tape airport radio communications at one selected airport over the course of a few days, and play it back at an evening Safety Seminar. Have you ever wondered what you sound like on the radio? You may be the next voice you hear at the seminar.
Our ongoing goal is to improve pilot radio communications to increase safety and better share the limited radio frequency resource. For our Candid Radio sessions, we select and identify the best and the worst radio calls heard at the airport and talk as a group about how the pilot could have done it differently. Confusing or missing readbacks? Missed radio calls? Unfamiliar with the airspace? All this and more make up the fun and educational group debriefing that is Candid Radio.
Let's face it, radio communication is often absorbed and not really taught. Too often pilots say things they heard others say, regardless of whether it is standard, informative, or even safe. FAA pilot training handbooks are thin on radio specifics and guidelines and changes to what makes up standard procedures occur constantly. What's a pilot to do? How can you tighten up and improve your radio calls so that you sound less like Amateur Hour Amos and more like Clean Competent Carmine? Would you rather bring the safety, professionalism, and elegance of an Air Force One pilot, or the hick goofball chatter of a regional jet jockey?
Join us for Candid Radio: SQL Edition and we'll give you plenty of examples to help you improve your radio calls.
