Question about a particular ATC jargon

Recommended Posts

What does the phrase "10 and trail" or maybe it's "10 in trail". Does that mean that aircraft A is 10 miles behind Aircraft B? im working on my private license (about half way done), and in the process I don't hear this particular phrase where I fly. I do however hear it when i listen on LiveATC for example. Can someone give me some info/ insight?! Thanks,Mitch Bowman

This software module is responsible for computing the flight deck informationneeded by the crew to determine whether the criteria required for an ITP procedure are metor not. This information is processed by a host application that decides how and when it isdisplayed to the crew.>unquote This explains the lot. Just a Google search......Loser.gif Peter AertssenAmsterdam
