Hey everyone. I’ve had this question for awhile now, and I was quite confused (and to be honest a little afraid) about it. Whenever I’m listening to live LAX ATC or even flying with my instructor, people that either talk too fast or are in a loud environment (perhaps an open cockpit aircraft), it’s very hard to hear what other pilots are saying if they don’t annunciate very well.
So my question is-
- Why do pilots talk so quickly?
- It it normal for me to not exactly hear every word a pilot is saying?
- How can I compensate for this issue? Will I develop and ear for it over time?
