The guys are back after vacation and recap the latest (bad) news from the airline industry while introducing the ‘warn horn’ and ‘furlough flute’. We read some listener reviews. Derek Vento, Air Traffic Controller, and host of the The Traffic Pattern Podcast, joins us to talk all things ATC [16:35]. Derek explains the demanding training required to be a controller while sharing his personal story. We discuss proper phraseology on the radio and controller pet peeves. Derek gives us a preview of the upcoming season of his podcast, freestyle raps ATC clearances, and shares a great story about how controllers and pilots work together to save lives.
