Verbal Traffic With Pilots And Tower

Thu Dec 16, 2004 9:13 am

How much conversation goes on between ground staff and pilots once they are in the cabin. I've personally been involved with comments made while taxing to the runway, and it can get pretty untasteful for some pilots!  Smile

A lot! You figure clearance has to be made from metering to ground to tower to eventually departure. And depending on the airport, there's a lot of communication to guide the aircraft from other traffic. I listen to Channel 9 whenever I fly and even though I've heard it a million times, I still find communication between pilots and ATC simply amazing! Especially in an airport such as ORD where there are planes galore moving every which way.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Are you an airline employee???? I thought you were in lawschool. How have you been "personally" involved with ground communication? Plus, if you have been personally involved, why are you asking how much comm goes on between pilots and ground?????
