Flight to KJAN with approach controller in plane reactions with ATC COMS PART 1 - video
Last week, I flew with my sister and the KJAN approach controller asked if I was the Sundowner pilot. Few messages later, and viola, yesterday, he got to sit in the front row of an airplane for the first time plus experience his first GA flight.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hp8AYOoxtXI
Not sure who learned more about local procedures and how things magically work within the ATC system, me or him sharing this flight. This video contains mostly his reactions during the flight and how something as simple as getting ATIS isn't as easy as it would seem on the surface.
I took him to all the local airports so he could put a "face to a name" of which this part will be in the part 2 video.
One thing for sure, I am confident we will get more compassionate service from this one controller now that he has seen the other side of the microphone.
