I was wondering if that was a MooneySpace member. Now I know! And a controller to boot. Started to watch it after Thanksgiving dinner but had to stop right after you air picked up your clearance. I wish we could do air pick-ups here easier.

I was able to open the link. The easiest way is to open it in YouTube and use the "share" to copy the link. When I do that it that way, it embeds the video. Not sure if it works differently on a laptop.

Easy air pickups is what I miss about moving into the boonies . . . I generally need to be a couple thousand feet or more to reach ATL.

Awesome!  Steve told me he had a Mooney flight he was working on.  I also wondered if it was part of this community.  You did a great job.

Check it out in the App Store of your favorite computing device, Andrew.

It is a viewer designed to work with boards like MS.

You can find a whole bunch of boards for your other interests as well!

Sorry "Other interests". I only have one interest "flying Mooneys". Are you saying you are a bigamist? ;)

There may be other aviation bbs.  I've never looked. 

If bigamy were legal, something about a shared Turbine mistress could be really cool.

Nice job.

You talked about keep the speed up. In a Mooney I find that easier than the opposite, "slow down for traffic ahead of you on final."

When you say keep the speed up without specifying a value, in the 201, what does that basically translate to? 120? 150?

 

As a controller, what are your pet peeves?

If you look closely, you can probably see Clarence's shop.

201er, if a controller says "keep your speed up" without giving a specific number, they just want you to go as fast as you can safely can. If that will be much below your filed cruise speed, it might not hurt to tell the controller what speed you will do, so that they know what to expect. I don't know what the rules are in the US, but in Canada, the lowest speed we can legally issue a jet is 160kts and when using speed control for approach sequence, that is normally the speed we give to jets and turboprops to the FAF. So if you have a piston doing 90kts on the approach with other aircraft following, you need a LOT of extra room. If you can do 150kts or better until past the FAF, you'll fit in just fine, but at least for me, that is only reasonable/safe if I'll be in VMC when the time comes to slow down.

Pet peeves as a controller:
1. Pilots not listening. Everyone misses a call here and there (me included), that's not the end of the world, but if I need to call someone multiple times and and it's the same every time I transmit to you, I'll get annoyed.
2. If I've vectored you off course and then tell you direct XYZ and you turn to re-intercept the original magenta line instead of entering a direct to from your present position. The most common occurrence of this for me is VFRs going from CYTZ to CYKF, we have them follow the Lake Ontario shoreline until they are clear of the arrival/departure area for CYYZ and then tell them direct CYKF. If they turn to go back to the magenta line from CYTZ to CYKF they end up heading at YYZ arrivals or departures.

What would it take for you, as a controller, to write up a pilot?

What should he expect and how scared should a pilot be when they "get a phone number?"

Flying with Parrots I have heard guarantees you a citation. If the Parrots can talk then they too are given a phone number to call. 

You should never be afraid, your enemy lives and breathes off your fear, have you not watched any Scorsese? :)

The Toronto controllers are among the most accommodating around, its airspace I fly in often.  City tours are always available even in quite busy airspace.  

One of my most memorable was an over flight of Toronto Pearson airport in my RV4 south to north with a young Air Cadet in the back seat. His eyes were as big as saucers with airliners of every size above and below us. All worked out with ease by our Pearson guys and gals.

My fear of talking to controller is I say dumb things.  Like looking East and saying I am East of the airport....  Then I have to beat myself up for a day.

Nice video
