Next Radar Contact Show: Call Sign by Color, and Picking Up VFR Flight Following

If you’re using your aircraft model and color scheme to identify yourself in an uncontrolled airport pattern, I have a good reason to quit immediately. Let’s talk about that reason in the next edition of the Radar Contact Show.

It’s been awhile since we talked about how to make initial contact with ATC when requesting VFR flight following. I’ve had some interesting comments and suggestions from pilots and flight instructors. We’ll hash it out in the next edition of the Radar Contact Show.

In the meantime, here’s a good read for IFR pilots. My friend and highly experienced pilot, Sarah Fritts of just published a Kindle book called

The Instrument Pilot’s Survival Guide.*

If you buy the book by Friday, April 22, you can get it for only $0.99. Sarah tells me the price will increase to $3.99 over the weekend and then $8.99 on Monday, April 25. Secure your copy at* before the price goes up. I’ll have more details about her book in the next show.

*The fine print: If you make a purchase at using this link, I receive a small commission.
