Radio Communication Help

Recommended Posts

I have yet to start flight school and have been working at Flat Iron for a few weeks. I notice that I have an extremely difficult time understanding what the crews put out over the radio. I can hear it but don't understand the actual words! When I know the context of the communication, such as a run-up radio check, then I know what they are doing and how I need to respond but I don't actually understand what they are saying. So when crews are out and they do a comms check with their location, I'm clueless as to where they are!

Is this common? Are there any suggestions on how to get better and comprehending radio chatter?

Don’t worry about it, you’ll learn it as you go. It’s just something you’ll have to do to get better at, especially if you were street to seat and didn't have a job that involved using the radio a lot.

I would say it's pretty common at first. You will feel lost for a while. The good thing is your IPs will handle the radio, easing you into it as you get more comfortable.
