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:
- Who am I?
- Where am I?
- 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.
