Jay Bunning Posted December 15, 2013 Report Share Posted December 15, 2013 Hi all, When performing a 180 auto from a high downwind, direct to final I currently use a radio call something like "Simulated engine failure, high right downwind, direct to final 16" but we are a very busy uncontrolled airport with many helicopter operations and everyone has their own version and I've heard airplane pilots complaining that 180 radio calls did not make sense - they were unaware of where the helicopter was (especially if there were 2-5 other helicopters on CTAF). So others who have worked in a busy training environment - what radio call do you use? Have you worked with fixed-wing operators to find to a standard radio call that makes sense to all users? Many thanks 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
