This is a piece of a commercial video produced by ITTV. It is readily available for purchase I believe.

Is there that level of communication on every flight or is any of that embellished for the video? Any airline pilots that can answer?

Looks about right to me.

I always thought approach sector to San Francisco was known as 'San Francisco Approach.' I don't recall it being called 'Bay Approach.'

The video is from some years ago, possibly the late 1990s. Since around 2003, the San Francisco area TRACON has been referred to as 'NORCAL' approach/departure control.

That's right. It's been awhile since I've flown up there. I knew Bay Approach didn't sound right.

The video was done around the late December 1999 time frame. At 2:36 into the first video, the captain references the SID plate and reads the date of issue as 17th Dec 1999.

Great video. Watched all 6 parts. I noticed that "heavy" was only used during landing, and was wondering why. Is wake not such a big deal during takeoff, or is there another reason for that?

Often, as is the case in Canada, heavy can sometimes only be said at initial contact, or in cases where wake turbulence is greatest (take off and landings).

The US is the only country that requires Heavy appended to every transmission. Generally either on First contact or not at all in the rest of the world.

Actually, it's only required when you're talking to Terminal or lower (Tower, Ground, etc.). It is not required while talking to enroute.

That would make sense as those are the times when it comes into play in terms of wake turbulence.

It is required en-route, it is required in any FAA controlled airspace not just low level. Wake turbulence encounters often happen en-route too. AIM 7-3-8 makes no distinction.

I am not a pilot but have done many cockpit jumpseat rides, last one a couple of years ago. Yes there is that level of communication, but remember the video is editied so the communication that may have taken place over 45 mins is compressed in to 10 mins of video. Otherwise on approach there are moments of silence, but remember any time the pilot does something to the operation of the plane they will tell the other.

Why do the first officers have two stripes? I thought three stripes indicated first officers. Back in the day, two stripes were for second officer, normally a flight engineer.

First Officer (FO) 2 Stripes, Senior First Officer (SFO) 3 Stripes. Normally at an airline, well a UK one anyway you will start as an FO then after a few years become an SFO.
