MaxSez: Flying a correct landing pattern is an extremely important skill set for every Pilot. It does not matter if you fly GA or a Trash Haulers! Ya gotta know standardized procedure, radio call outs, what a downwind leg is and your left from your right in relation to the airfield. This video illustrates improper procedure and a lack of skill by a “Sports” Pilot & a Controller who messed it up! Watch, tell us what call out & pattern procedure errors you note that made this scenario an extremely dangerous day at the air park?
(Fledglings Practice makes perfect! Flying long legs in a Trash Haulers and doing ILS Precision Approaches and landing successfully does not make Jack a Pilot! Or fly on Expert)
Wow who gave that guy a license. English proficient? That would be difficult to judge.
Wait, wasn’t that the controller’s fault? Just look:
GYI TOWER: PRITB, thank you. Make left traffic runway 17L. Report midfield left downwind.
PRITB: Okay…understand we are cleared to land on runway 17L.
N478BK: North Texas Tower, Cessna 8BK, 3 mile final.
GYI TOWER: 478BK wind 190 at 12. Runway 17L, cleared to land.
PRITB’s readback was entirely incorrect, but the controller did not correct the pilot. The pilot definitely doesn’t know what he’s doing, but the controller definitely should have caught that incorrect readback.
Controllers are in a high stress position, I can’t blame him that the mistake went unoticed. I’d also say that it’s the pilots fault due to poor English and improper training.
Yea his read back was completely incorrect, and she should have caught it. However any idiot could have known what was going on listening to the other radio traffic.
While this is definitely true, that controller was not in a stressful situation at the time judging by the other traffic.
MaxSez: So far so good. Great observations. When you fly international in Global hope you have the opportunity to receive Controller guidance where English is his second or 3 language, or procedures are local and not AIM driven. Nobody said it was gonna be ezy.
Interesting, Tower actually cleared PRITB to land and instructed plane behind him to go around on left. However, PRITB went go around instead and plane behind him landed on 17L. Lot of confusion going on, but good thing it got cleared up as more planes were inbounding.
See mistake 3 minutes into video.
@Deaf… MaxSez: TS-1 Controller & a girl at that…LOL…
Lol. She was hesitating when she gave the landing clearance to PRITB so seem like she knew something was off, but she carried on. Just like TS1 controllers, must have figured plane behind PRITB would phrase through PRITB when landing.
@Deaf. MaxSez: Could be, I believe she was practicing “LAHSO” procedures on that go but forgot the command. Don’t ya just lov the fact that the real world has its TS-1 moments. That’s why the Pilot is always the Decision Maker… Good Scan at all times, Trust but verify…
You sir owe me an hour of my life! J/K after this I ended up watching 10 other videos. Lessons learned here.
@American232…Trust me Sir, I’m the oldest man on this Forum. I’ve never stopped learning. On IF out of the mouths of babes off time come gems most of the time. Don’t Judge a book etc., my best to the boy in the Chiefs Hat. Hope he’s flying in your right seat…Regards
She rides in the parades and her two siblings (boys) are holding short. Agree 100%, learning something everyday and when I stop learning that will be the day that my hat will hang for good. Cheers
I always end up doing that anytime I open one of these. YouTube’s suggestions suck me in.
A whirling devilish tornado of intriguing cover photos.
Very poor situational awareness from the pilot of PRITB. I’m surprised that he couldn’t tell that the spacing was terrible as he was turning base-final. Dangerous.
Dang, that was almost a mid-air collision… smh. Probably English isn’t his native language but please… at least you have to bust your *ss in order to be proficient in this area. I’m proudly Mexican and despite English not being my native language, I honestly get to speak and understand better than some American Private Pilots. Cheers to everyone and safe flights
