Hi,On a recent flight, when my copilot contacted the tower upon landing, she included "with kilo" into the sentence. In other flights "with whisky" or some similar phrases has been included, e.g. when calling for clearence.What does that mean?/ Jesper

Those are the weather conditions, winds, runways, etc. for an airport that you get from the ATIS radio pre-recorded information. They start with "alpha" and go through the ATC alphabet to "zulu". Just lets the controller know that you have listened to the latest weather and conditions. The recording is updated regularly.The ATIS briefing should start with something like "St. Louis information Whiskey...." and then you get the pre-recorded briefing.

With kilo might mean he's trafficking drugs! Whiskey?? That's booze! I'd check him out if I were you! ;)

>Whiskey?? That's booze! I'd check him out if I were you! ;)Of course I took extra care of handling the aircraft lightly when I heard there was whiskey on board - wouldn't risk that any of it was wasted ;-)/ Jesper
