I am a student pilot, and I am sort of writing this message on an impulse. When is it necessary to make the call "any traffic in the area please advise" at an uncontrolled field. I forgot to ask my question to my flight instructor today, and was just wondering if any of you CFI's out there could help me out. Thanks in advance!!

Whenever you feel that it is necessary to do so. Don't feel embaressed, if you feel like you don't have a picture of the aircraft in the area and you feel unsafe, ask. Better to ask the question and find out you already knew than to not ask and get into trouble.

When I used to fly Cessna, i always made it before changing my heading because of much private traffic on Sunny Sundays... You have to ask the same question on the frequency while on approach for landing to make sure no one is doing the same at the same time!!! and everytime you leave or enter the "short circuit". We have here at LFBS a big traffic area that is uncontrolled but with beautiful landscapes over an oceanic bay, that's to say that every one flies there during summer, wouldn't we copy us respectively by our own, due to sun reflection over water and sun blending itself, we for sure would have had many collisions since! Not talking from "Sunday pilots" who deact their transponder to fly less than the autorized level...

Not meaning to sound rude or anything, I'm just wondering, whenever you changed your heading, on final, etc. did you ask where everyone else was or announce your position? Andman is asking when it is appropriate to ask where everyone else is

Rakgha, you're absolutely right, sorry for my bad explanations in english...
I'ts only to announce your position VS other pilots i.e. when on final as a security step. You start from the point that if other pilots do the same, you will know where they are at the same moment.
Cheers.

Right, it's the same in the US. We announce our position on downwind, base, final, entering and leaving the pattern. Actually, it's not recommended to announce base due to congestion on the frequency, but most people do it.

Right, I know u you have to announce your position, but is the "any traffice in the area, please advise call" just used to get a better picture, or what?
Thanks for the help!

Right, that call is just used to get a better picture of the traffic in the area. If you feel uncomfortable about a situation, speak up. Don't hesitate to address your radio call to another plane at the uncontrolled airport to ask what he/she is doing or whatever

It is generally a wise move to call it when still a couple miles out of your uncontrolled airport...that way you know who is there.


OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
