The Aviator Alert Bulletin from the Phoenix Deer Valley Air Traffic Control Tower offers some excellent tips and information on taxi-clearance requirements, holding short of a runway, and use of that pesky phrase “Roger” and what it really means.
DVT Tower’s Rob Smuda says the Aviator Alert is not a regular publication. Rather, it was distributed after a recent review of pilot deviation causal factors. Jim McMahon, the new DVT Air Traffic Manager is committed to keeping the aviation community informed on issues through various forums and attendance at user meetings.
Plus, find some timely excerpts from the AIM confronting pilots and flight instructors in the current airport operations environment.
The Aviator Alert Bulletin appears as feature of the Deer Valley Pilots’ Association website at dvtpilots.com. Check it out!
