terminolgy question

Recommended Posts

Hi again,I've got another question. When on a vfr flight to a non-towered airport I request freq change before I get within 20 miles of the destination and receive approval. I change freq to the unicom and I can request airport info and receive it. However, the control panel only tells me to switch back to center freq and I never get any instructions for contacting the destination airport. I don't need to request landing clearence at a non towered airport do I? After I change freq what terminolgy do I use to announce my landing intentions?Thank, Mark

You should be able to tune the unicom frequency for the non-towered airport and ask for landing advisories which it sounds like you have done. I haven't checked this part yet with the latest update but you might be able to get closer than 20 miles now. You should be given altimeter setting and prefered landing runway. You than announce your position and intentions on that same unicom frequency and listen for other traffic. Your position reports should be upon entering the 45, downwind, base and final.
