Episode 7 – Radio Telephony
Radio Telephony, RT, is the subject of episode 7 of the Ready for Departure podcast. Steve explains how the RT qualification fits into the PPL syllabus and he talks about his experiences with the two exams, the written test and the practical aural examination with a CAA examiner. Using real-world examples of RT from City Airport Manchester (Barton), Steve explains some of the most common RT calls and how he learned the phraseology.
Steve highlights the importance of listening to the radio as well as getting the calls right and refers to the example youtube video below, courtesy of Touchdown Point. The RT bible, CAP 413, Steve mentions in this podcast episode can be downloaded in PDF format here.
