How-To Guide: Interacting with ATC on Approach

Written by on January 20, 2022

For many new pilots and new simmers, the term ‘Air Traffic Control’ instills a feeling of dread due to the procedural constraints placed upon the Left-hand seat.  Much of this fear is largely unfounded as proper phraseology and interaction with Air Traffic Control can be achieved by any pilot who takes the time to learn and practice.

To assist aspiring real-world and virtual pilots, The Corporate Pilot Dad, has produced an ongoing series of videos to walk through the various phases of flight and discuss the scenarios you may find yourself involved in; as well as how to properly interpret, act and respond to directions provided by Air Traffic Control.

If you are a real-word aspiring pilot – or a virtual pilot seeking to conquer the challenges of PosCon, PilotEdge, VATSIM or IVAO, these simple guides are essential to building your skills as a competent flyer in a controlled airspace.  Each video features the expert commentary of The Corporate Pilot Dad himself as well as coined responses from real-world Air Traffic Controllers.

In the latest of this helpful series, The Corporate Pilot Dad discusses the scenarios and responses typically encountered during the approach phase.  He will discuss situations and simple methods to help you understand, memorise and properly respond to ATC instructions when you are nearing your destination.
