John Krug and Bob Adellizi are seasoned air traffic controllers. They have kindly provided their input on some of the biggest mistakes pilots make when talking with ATC.


"Well, probably one of the biggest mistakes is just not listening. This is all about communications, and it is all about two-way communications. And, it's making a transmission, and no answer. Then you are, ‘Okay, did he hear it, and maybe did not respond? Did he not hear it? Is the radio turned down? Is he NORDO? Is he highjacked?’ You just do not know. So, not listening is, I do not know if it is number one, but it is definitely way up there.

“Another one that you hear a lot today, and is really kind of a useless response, is, ‘Got him on the fish finder,’ or ‘Got him on Discovery Channel.’ When you call traffic, you hear the response that they are on the TCAS or they are on the TIZ or whatever. Nice to know, but it really does not do anything for the controller. If you are responsible for getting two airplanes to see each other for a visual approach, or you are trying to apply visual separation, or you are trying to make a traffic call, you have to have the visual. So, save that for the hangar flying session, or something like that."


"I think something that gets to us, sometimes, is we have to work in a very structured environment, with IFR and sometimes even VFR. And you get some pilots who say, ‘We see the airport, and we have seen it since Albany; we've seen it since Kennedy...” That's great, but we can't do anything right now. The controllers just say, ‘Fly such and such a heading,’ and, again, for a reason. This is your sequence. And then as you get close to the final, we will start turning you in and start pointing out traffic for the visual.

“And the other one is, ‘If it helps you...;’ ‘If it helps, we have…’ It usually would help, but we can't do anything right now. You have to understand, there are certain times that we can't do anything."


"And, if we could, we would have done it."


"Oh, yes, we don't need to delay anybody; we don't need to load the scope up. We don't need to load up the frequency with people who we don't need to talk to."
