How to enter controlled airspace and Melbourne City orbits

In this week’s pilot vlog I show you how I request clearance to enter controlled airspace in order to fly a couple of orbits around Melbourne City.

Requesting clearance is actually really straightforward if you remember three key things to include in your radio call:

  1. Who am I?
  2. Where am I?
  3. What am I doing OR what do I want to do?

In the video you’ll see what happens when I request clearance for Melbourne City orbits from Essendon Tower and some great footage from the window-mounted cameras of the city at 1500 feet.
