Re: North Central/East Coast Florida (JAX, UST, GNV, DAB, MLB, VRB) Aviation Thread - 2020

Once they get a few A220’s under their belt, I could definitely see them running 2-3 flights a day into DAB again.

As much as I would like to see them come into MLB, I doubt it will be anytime soon, if at all.

ATC and fun are two words that should never really go together. The job does not allow it, or it shouldn’t.

I know at my facility the majority of us use niner. In fact during review time, if I were to use nine instead of niner, they’ll write you up for bad phraseology. So not sure where the idea that it’s BS (as someone so elegantly put it) and nobody uses it comes from.
