MaxSez: Like Google ATC is your Friend! Watch and learn how Pro’s handle a close one.
Atc is awesome to have. Just got back from a flight with atc. There the best thing for a pilot that needs help
ATC are very helpful, but sometimes they can be rude also if they are having a bad day oh well that’s life 😉
They can be rude because typically they’ve got 15+ pilots they have to make sure don’t crash with one another 😉
I heard ATC on the same YouTube channel that this link is provided being a pain to even commercial pilots which are not 15+ 😂😁 but I get what you mean.
Rude atc… lol. Not once have I experienced a rude atc
I think he means more “pushy” per say. You probably haven’t flown in a New York airspace if you haven’t expericned a pushy controller lol!
MaxSez: ATC; “Rude & Pushy”! Take a minute out of your sheltered life and take a tour of a RW tower & its supporting radar facility during peak flow! Or down load an ATC/Airport App like “Live ATC”! You’ll change your mind immediately after the tour or 5 miniutes of listening to the flow. Better yet, get some tickets and fly the “friendly sky’s” Capitan Happy!
Your right I don’t live in New York but have friends that do. Had some atc today and the controller was cool and nice but yes I agree @Maxmustang get a ticket aka licnese and experience atc for yourself
I’m going to rephrase this:
I’m not sure how you know I haven’t visited a control tower, being I’ve never said so. Also, @N1DG how are you sure I don’t have a license, or in training or schooling to do so, I’m not a multimillionaire or in he military, thus, this stuff does not come cheap. I’m not too sure how you could compare a Midwest airspace to one in New York, but whatever floats your boat!
I don’t know how the pilot could think about coffee.
Kevin, if your trolling for an argument pls take it to a PM. Thank you, Max
I’m not comparing airspace at all. I Don’t know that. You could be possibly in flight training. But either way I’ve never heard of a rude or had a rude controller there to help you
I always love the vids and seeing how smoothy an emergency situation can go when both controllers and pilots remain calm. I was surprised that guy made it that far on a bad engine. Even though the title clearly states that he landed on the taxiway when it got to that point in the vid I was caught of guard but the I thought that I definitely can’t blame him. In that situation you have to do whatever you need to make it out alive and as the controller said, he had the entire field to do whatever he needed to do to get down safely.
I have a question. He mentioned inbound for 28 but landed on Alpha twy, no one said anything though, is it more of a etiquette to not hold up departures?
With an emergency inbound, they already stopped departures; as they told him, “the field is yours”. Everyone else on the ground was stopped, so they’re not worried about interfering with departures, as there aren’t any. The only operation they’re concerned with at the field is getting him down safely.
I see, thanks alot. I never expected, ‘the field is yours’ to be that literal but with that information, i do appreciate much more regarding what was done.
You might still ping a real-world pilot about it, and I assume their preference would be runway, but yeah, in an emergency, they drop/stop everything. If he could have hit 28, probably better, but they certainly wouldn’t send him around or chew him out at that point.
Always want the runway has a pilot expecially if you have a probelm with your airplane but the taxiway is the next best thing to me
