    I highly doubt that. Are you by chance "outside" the US? Of course there is irony and then there's just being a smartass. But the question still remains, how would would YOU say the equivalent of "airspeed alive" using your apparently higher grasp of plain English?

    And nobody says, "let's go aviating." ;)

    And one last thing. As a controller this "jargon" as you call it, is designed to keep things simple, succinct and to the point. Plain English is used as a last resort.

    IF anyone would even fly with him with that attitude. I wouldn't.

    Some radical ideas:

    What’s wrong with the plain English “airspeed working” or “airspeed good” or “speed gauges good”? I’m sorry, but people outside the US do manage to fly airplanes without the idiotic expression “airspeed alive”.

    There’s a highly competent German commercial pilot on YouTube who is clearly pained to acknowledge the existence of the American expression “airspeed alive”. And I agree with him. Is that a crime? Do you think Americans have a patent on flight terminology?

    Are you serious about an alternative to “steam gauges”? They are analogue gauges, not exactly an unknown concept. They have F all to do with early 20th century railroad locomotives. Or do you not even know that that is where the expression comes from?

    Lord knows where “glass cockpit” comes from. Nobody talks about a “glass workstation”. In the real world, it’s a computer and display loaded with aviation software. As a matter of plain English, the latter makes sense. “Glass cockpit” makes no sense to anybody except a pilot steeped in pilot jargon and Garmin marketing.

    I asked the questions, you answered them. Fair enough.

    Good luck with your training.

    Well it’s certainly a pity that you don’t seem to know that expressions like “steam gauges” and “glass cockpit” make no sense outside Garmin marketing material.

    And it’s also a pity that you have apparently decided that anyone who doesn’t use the expression “airspeed alive” is wet behind the ears, because, you know, that’s what you and your pals use.

    Funny, you could put "Conservative trolls" there and it would have as much relevance to the text that follows as it did in the original.

    My objection is primarily in the increasingly wide-spread usage of convenient labels to dismiss as irrelevant any viewpoint you don't want to hear. I find it increasingly difficult to take seriously anyone who uses "Conservative" or "Liberal" as a swear word.

    Can’t do. I live half the year in New York, part of it in Paris, and the rest on a salmon river in Newfoundland, where I not only hear accordion and violin folk music but respect it.

    And your point is?

    My point is that the British Commonwealth couldn't win the war on their own so the Americans bailed you out. A lot of our greatest generation are buried in graves over there so that your spoiled, snot-nosed little punks didn't have to grow up speaking German.

    "My pneumatic tube-and-gauge system is experiencing differential pressure sufficient to cause the mechanical indicator to indicate that the airspeed corresponding to that differential pressure is above the threshold required for indication."

    "What?!"

    "Airspeed's alive."

    I got a kick out of some non-standard phraseology tonight.

    Controller decides to flip the airport around, deals with all of the traffic reversals with aplomb (I just like saying aplomb) including us who he has do a high speed taxi down 35L to spin around and depart 17R and ...

    It’s always the easy one that gets ya, after concentrating that hard...

    Denver hands him an IFR many miles out who checks in aimed south and he gives them, “Cleared to land 35R.”

    The pilot just says, “Are you sure? Maybe 17L?”

    Controller apologizes and gave him the correct runway number. Hehehe. We were chuckling on the upwind from the parallel.

    It’s was a fun evening in the pattern. My instructor accidentally asked to switch to touch and goes to speed things up a bit right as the clock said it was “night” and then he realized he wanted to do full stops to make sure we were both night current. So he tells the controller to disregard the request and apologizes.

    Controller, laughing, says, “Nope! Too late! Already switched ya!” And then chuckles and says he’s kidding and we’re cleared to land.

    It’s all about com-mun-i-kay-shun... ya know? ;) Everyone was apparently feeling saucy tonight at the KAPA funny farm.

    So, I want to be a pilot, but I don't like the aviation lingo, therefore everyone else should change, that is all..... oh, and you are all poopyheads.

    I'm the OP, it's ok with me and I found it interesting, but yeah, as you say, I got a good answer (as usual here!) pretty quickly.

    I think this happens a lot with us students. At least with THIS one, that as I learn, I become aware that though I think I know the meaning of something...a little voice in the back of my head tells me to double check because it could be something with a very precise meaning, and could have implications I'm not aware I am agreeing to.

    Airspeed good: This is ambiguous. Good for what? Rotation?

    Speed gauges good: Which speed gauges? How many are you looking at?

    Airspeed working: Same number of syllables as the standard call but worse cadence and too easily mistaken for airspeed broken.

    What is the standard CRM call-out for the airspeed indicator coming to life on takeoff roll in which other countries that you are referring to?

    But I guess it’s not idiotic when the Canucks use “track bar is alive” or “VNAV is alive”?:confused:

    From Transport Canada:

    Standard Calls General Other than as noted in this subsection and the next one that deals with altitude, no additional calls to those described in the "General" chapter are required during the Initial/Intermediate Approach phase. To reduce the likelihood of overshooting a desired track during any arrival procedure the PNF should warn the PF as follows:
    i) When approaching a track which will be followed using primarily the track bar display, on initial movement of the track bar away from full deflection with the warning flags out of view, the PNF should call "Track Bar is alive." The PF should confirm the movement and say "Check."
    ii) When approaching a track which will be followed using primarily a bearing display, the PNF should warn the PF when the display indicates that the aircraft is 10o away from the desired track. For example the PNF would call "10 degrees to 140", where 140o is the desired track. The PF would confirm the bearing and call "Check."
    iii) To reduce the likelihood of overshooting a desired vertical path during the Initial/Intermediate Approach phase, the PNF should warn the PF as follows:
    a) When approaching a VNAV computed descent path on initial movement of the vertical path indicator away from full deflection with the warning flags out of view, the PNF should call "VNAV is alive." The PF should confirm the movement and say "Check."

    By his own words he's just a student pilot right? Were you expecting his senseless diatribe to be grounded in logic?

    And here I thought that “Airspeed alive” was a good mental and verbal exercise to succinctly remind me and to put my CFI’s mind at rest that I had indeed observed the ASI, that it was working and that the airplane was gaining velocity at the proper rate. I had no idea I was perpetuating an antiquated anachronism. How will I ever go on?!

    It would seem useful to me if I thought that the other pilots on frequency would hear my own position report and yet somehow think that position reports of their own would serve no purpose.

    That having been said, the AIM prohibition might be a little over the top.

    Still wrong - Should be "Listening 122.5."

    Any Trolls In The Area, Please Advise...

    Because it's a waste of valuable frequency time in exactly the situation you're describing. A quick "Podunk traffic, N345, 5-mile straight in final runway 27" is enough on its own. If there's someone that might cause a conflict, they'll answer. Adding ATITAPA does absolutely nothing but waste valuable time conflicting traffic might have been able to use to reply.

    There's only one valid use of "with you" IMO:

    "7ST, turn left bravo three, taxi to the south ramp via delta, remain this frequency."
    "Left bravo three, delta to the south ramp with you, 7ST."

    It's the fastest way to acknowledge "remain this frequency". Other than that, well, the rest of us are judging those of you who say it. ;)

    The fastest way to acknowledge "remain this frequency" is to say your prefix and call sign. Anything else is extraneous.
