November 22, 2017 (Nashua, NH) – PilotWorkshops has released “VFR Communications” the latest in their Pilot-Friendly Manual series. The printed manual includes accompanying videos that clearly explain, in a task-oriented format, what to say when and where.
“We recognize that all new pilots, and many experienced ones, feel intimidated talking on the radio. Our new VFR Communications manual utilizes both print and video in a unique combination that makes learning or refreshing radio skills easier and more effective,” stated PilotWorkshops founder Mark Robidoux.
The new manual uses a proven format. “We’ve sold thousands of our Pilot-Friendly GPS Manuals because pilots love the step-by-step format that shows the proper way to perform a task or procedure. We’ve taken that formula and brought it to radio skills,” commented Robidoux.
The VFR Communications manual shows the position of the aircraft when communication is taking place (on charts or airport diagrams) and any other relevant factors. It helps the pilot visualize when and where they should be communicating, and exactly what to say. The text also includes helpful tips and sidebars pertaining to the specific communications scenario being explained. The videos, delivered online, accompany each lesson. You hear and see proper phraseology during communications between the pilot, Air Traffic Control and other airplanes.
