    Yeah, I don't get this. If you're in NYC class B, maybe keep it short to the extreme. But some of this sounds like someone loses a month off their lifespan for every word they speak.

    :rolleyes:

    "level at ten thousand" are four words that can be skipped. No need to give your altitude when you are, by definition, speaking to the same controller.

    And yes, every word counts on a bad day at New York tracon. The frequency is routinely packed with planes, such that you don't even have a chance to check-in half of the time. They just call you when it's time.

    Well, 5 words if you say “level at one zero thousand.” But yeah, extraneous info.

    Maybe his safety pilot didn't bring up the one zero vs ten during training.

    :rofl:

    Sick burn, Ed. I was quoting the post above mind and very nearly corrected it to 'one zero thousand' but didn't wanna be a dick.

    All in good fun, and I didn't catch that it was a quote the first time through. I just caught the quote of your quote, which didn't show what you were quoting.

    From my experience they just want you to advise that you are up on the new frequency, or else they will give you a radio call to verify after a minute. But you are correct, I don't advise altitude or heading again.

    The phraseology should be “Cessna two three bravo, change to my frequency 119.xx”


    Unless instructed there is no requirement to report up on that new frequency, although most do with something like “Cessna two three bravo with you on 119.xx”

    That was my error recently. I would switch to the new frequency and then report back call sign and altitude when I should have been giving frequency. I had controllers on more than one occasion repeating the frequency change to me after a few minutes which leads me to believe I was not being helpful initially.

    Valid point with the NY TRACON example, but just to pick at fine nits, during busy times (always) with NY TRACON, I'd doubt that controllers are working two sectors/frequencies.
