This isn’t written down anywhere, but the busier it gets the less pilots talk and the more ATC talks.

The extreme example of this is the OSH arrival NOTAM where the frustrated private pilots aren’t allowed to talk at all on the radio.

Dog gone it. Wrong again.

Digits are you still instructing? Maybe next winter I should go get some recurrent training.

I guess I’m going back to, “(Registration) squawking ident.”
Been acknowledging the squawk ident command from ATC by pushing the ident button for 25 years and nobody ever complained.

Yesterday

Me: Afternoon Terminal Grumman GABC

ATC, sqwak ident say intentions

Me push ident button

Me five thousand five hundred to Victoria ABC

ATC Radar identified, cleared to Victoria, 5500

Me ABC

Total word count by me 18. Total time for the exchange maybe 12 seconds
Less is More

Well, we are in Canada so I suspect you are more likely to get asked to confirm rather than a CADORs.

Worst trouble I ever got from ATC was when I messed up a number in the DCA class C. “THAT’S NOT WHAT I SAID, I said…”
“Sorry, reg correction…”

I was tired, long day, I think I may have read back the usual altitude of my home field.

If TC wants to take away my Canadian ATPL because they don't like my R/T, that's ok.

I was doing a IPC the other day and my check guy suddenly says "That's going on my list!" Horrified I did something wrong I asked "what list?"

"My list of things guys say on the radio that irritate the fuck out of me!" I think someone else on center referred to the TCAS as the "fish finder".

The list was long and hilarious and delivered with enthusiasm.

My favorite is when a wannabe says something on the radio, thinking they sounds cool, but the term is completely wrong.

Most common is traffic advisories: “traffic 2 o’clock 1 thousand above.”
“TALLY!”

Umm, wrong term there bud. “TALLY” is something you say when you want to kill it.

If you really want to sound cool, say “JUDY” or “VISUAL.”


Ahhhhh, I’ll get off my soapbox.

The funniest is when kids barely out of diapers try to use the obsolete WWII phonetic alphabet on the comm.

Give me a break. You aren't 100 years old, ok?

Oh I remember many things, but I also don't want to steal his material.
