So i have some questions that i have wanted answered for a long time but i was to lazy to just put them all in different posts, so here they are in one post
- After Takeoff, tower hands u off to departure. but then what are u supposed to say? i usually just check in and then thats the end of it, but i feel like there is more. i have gotten out of the habit of requesting flight following as i have heard more experienced pilots that it should not be used. so please give me a walkthrough of specific instructions you give/take to/from the ATC controller.
2.What is the point of requesting radar vectors? shoudnt you just fly according to the flight plan?
if i already have a flight plan that leads me onto a specific runway, do i need to contact approach. i know which rate to descend at, so do i just contact tower and ask for clearance to land?
fuel. sometimes i am sure that i have more than enough fuel to get to my destination, but after i take off it still says FUEL next to my ETE to dest. after a while it goes away, but it still makes me scared that i am going to run out of fuel halfway through my flight.
I am about to graduate to grade 3, which means i have acces to expert server. anything new i should know apart from ATIS?
Sometimes i cant hear the noise coming from my ipad. i can only hear it if i can connect it to a bluetooth device, airpods, speaker etc.
these are 2 actually
firstly, when you land and taxi off the runway, how do you know which taxiways lead you to parking? this always gets me really confused and i end up taxiing back on the runway
secondly, how do people get so good at taxiing? im talking about nose gear almost perfectly centered. i know it will take some practice, but i am willing to do it
so these are all my nooby questions. i would really appreciate if you could answer just one question you know the answer to as it would really help me.
thx so much!
