Dear Pilots,

On Saturday, August 11th, at the Sacramento Executive Airport conference room, NorCal Controllers Pat Burke and Aleks Koleukhov will be discussing with local pilots about the radio communication and procedures for flying in the area, with detailed discussion on the local flight paths, hot spots, etc. It will be a great refresher on how communication should go between ATC and pilots, especially in high density traffic areas. Special focus will be on VFR flight following requests, frequency changes, and expectations on the part of controllers and pilots. There will be face-to-face discussion with controllers to understand the process better and operate safer. Don’t miss this opportunity to discuss with the Norcal controllers!


We hope to see you there!
