HF 20: Ground Control

Channel 9 on United Airlines inflight entertainment system has always been patched through to the pilots conversation with air traffic control.  In this episode of Hangar Flying our pilots discuss their ATC communication while taxing to and from the gate. They explain runway and taxiway naming and their first experiences talking with ATC.

Y'all done with the podcast? Just realized I hadn't seen any new releases in a while after having a flight with a FA working towards her CFII. Makes me wonder how many FAs are also pilots and/or are working towards a career in the cockpit instead of in the cabin.
