FAA COMPLETES CLEARANCE RELAY INITIATIVE

Obtain your clearance by phone

 

Flight Service will complete the Clearance Relay initiative on June 20 when it publishes the remaining phone numbers for pilots to obtain IFR clearances at public- and private-use airports, from either the overlying Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) Flight Data Units, or an approach control facility. As part of modernization efforts to streamline service delivery and increase efficiency, pilots now call directly to obtain or cancel an IFR clearance, reducing the risk of potential errors.

You can find the phone numbers for clearance delivery in the communications section of the entry for each airport in the Chart Supplement, U.S. This initiative does not affect pilots requesting clearances from Flight Service or Air Traffic over Remote Communications Outlets (RCO).

ROUND-DIAL OR GLASS, WHICH IS RIGHT FOR ME?

From Sporty’s Student Pilot News

By Paul Jurgens

 

A question that often arises with new student pilots, when there is an option, is, “Should I train in a round-dial airplane or one with a glass flight deck?”

In some cases, a flight school may only have one choice, an older round-dial airplane or a newer glass flight deck airplane. If you want to train at this flight school, your choice is made for you.

Definitions

First, I should define some terms. When I speak of round-dial airplanes, sometimes called “steam gauge airplanes” , I am talking about an airplane with a mechanically driven “6 pack” of standard instruments. A glass flight deck airplane has the traditional instruments replaced with an LCD screen representation of the same information. Backup instruments may be mechanical or glass from a separate power source. There are also partial glass hybrids where some of the mechanical instruments have been replaced with LCD representations of individual instruments but other mechanical instruments still exist.
