Last time, we talked to you about proper aviation maneuvers at an uncontrolled, or non-towered airport. If you missed it, please check out that article here. This update brings you on how to make proper radio calls when flying at an uncontrolled airport.
But first, what is meant by an “uncontrolled airport?” Uncontrolled airports are those without a control tower. As the AOPA says in their Air Safety Institute, uncontrolled airports are anything but uncontrolled. To learn how to make proper radio calls, when flying at an uncontrolled, or non-towered field, check out this article from BoldMethod.
For additional reading, check out these two great resources, the AOPA’s Air Safety Institute PDF on flying at an uncontrolled field, and the FAA AC-90-66B Non-Towered Airport Operations.
