In Say Again, Please Bob Gardner explains how the ATC system works and teaches pilots what to say, what to expect to hear, and how to interpret and react to clearances and instructions. His oncise writing style will help increase your comfort level when using an aircraft radio. Inside are "talk" examples of typical radio transmissions explaining how ATC works, as well as simulated flights that clearly demonstrate correct communication procedures in each class of airspace. This hands-on book covers the following

Bob Gardner's "Say Again, Please" teaches readers what to say, what to expect to hear, and how to interpret and react to clearances and instructions, while detailing the airspace system and explaining how the ATC system works. Chapters in the book cover communication etiquette and rules, understanding radio equipment, emergency situations, and both VFR and IFR communications and clearances.

Say Again, Please book. This material is often not covered well in primary training and this book fills in those gaps. I wish they would update it regularly. Start by marking Say Again, Please: Guide to Radio Communications as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. Fantastic, clear, and concise guide to streamlining your radio communications as a pilot. Builds from simple to more complex scenarios with excellent detail.

In Say Again, Please Bob Gardner explains how the ATC system works and teaches pilots what to say, what to. .Designed as a quick reference guide or radio communications training self study guide for both VFR and IFR radio communication. Chapters cover communication etiquette and rules, understanding radio equipment, emergency situations, and both VFR and IFR communications and clearances. Also included: a concise summary of the FAA’s communication facilities and their functions, airspace classifications and definitions, and the FAA’s recommended shorthand for copying clearances.

I am an EXCELLENT reference book written by the wonderful Bob Gardner, the Say Again, Please - Guide To Radio Communications. This was given to me as a gift and I haven't even read it. This book is brand new and is even autographed by the author! The first page an autograph from the author that says "Blue skies and tailwinds!!! - Bob Gardner".

Providing a clear, conversational approach to radio communications, this sourcebook for pilots and aviation specialists features typical transmissions in order to explain how the air traffic control system works and presents simulated flights to demonstrate the correct procedures. Topics cover every aspect of radio communication, including basic system and procedural comprehension, etiquette and rules, visual flight rules, instrument flight rules, emergency procedures, ATC facilities and their functions, and a review of airspace definitions. Beginners and professionals alike will find this an invaluable resource for communicating by radio.

I'm pursuing a PPL under part 61 so I'm basically building my own ground school curriculum from books here at Amazon. The various FAA books are good, and cover the basics, but in terms of putting it all together in terms of what you do when flying through the different classes of airspace this is the best book I've found. Not only does it cover the radio communications itself (and cover it rather well), it covers the rules changes a bit in different airspaces and is the best resource I've found so far for decoding sectional charts actually. If you're even considering getting this book just do it. I've read through it 3 times already and every time I learn something. Buy this book, a sectional chart for your area, and sit down with a cup of coffee and you'll figure it all out yourself.

With all of that said, the author could really beef it up for a new edition if he wanted to. If I were the author I'd include color scans of sectional charts in each chapter, showing what the airspaces actually look like on the charts. Also I'd add a bit more to differentiate the different types of radio centers you talk to. He does describe them in the text, and includes an appendix which repeats the same information, but it just doesn't quite "gel" in terms of what each one is the way it should. Still an awesome book.

A log of people have great things to say about this book, and I agree with them. Radio procedural stuff isn't covered well in most prep material, and isn't covered much on the exam, which leaves learning it while receiving flight instruction. That works, but it's not really efficient, and if you're like me you might rather be paying attention to all the other things going on more than the radio. So that's where this book fits in. Figure out how much it costs compared to an hour of dual time, and it's a bargain.

If you're not working on getting a pilot's license, I don't think I'd recommend the book. Although I suppose if you were really into sim flight it could be nice

I was always comfortable speaking with ATC, but on occassions I found myself stuck for the right words or confused by listening to too many words.
What I needed was more exposure to a broader range of ATC expressions, a script if you would like. I found what I was looking for in several books but opted to purchase this one after reviewing it in the local bookstore.
I found this book to have very clear walkthroughs of each situation you can expect to encounter. It covered each class of airspace and talking to other sources such as FSS, Weather briefers, etc and I found this extra information to be invaluable.
This book is especially useful to me whenever I review a flight I am about to make and wish to clarify what I can expect to be hearing at unfamiliar airports. It helps me to walkthrough and review the challenges ahead of me, and improves my own confidence dramatically. I've found this a great help in managing the energy I'm spending on flying the airplane, as opposed to thinking about what it is I want to say.
There are also many great tips in this book, some of which I have not seen covered elsewhere or heard from an instructor yet have helped me understand why we say things in a certain way and when it's perhaps better to deviate from recommendations and work with ATC for better results.
This is probably a cheaper and handier alternative to communication simulations software. I thought about getting such software just so I could practice each scenario and I am sure there are benefits in doing that but I'm glad I spent less money on this book instead. I don't think that software would have offered much more than the book and the cost savings make this a more economical purchase. The cost difference is an hours flying and I know what I'd rather do. This book was more than good enough.
This is a very handy book for student and low hours pilots to have. I'm sure as I gain more experience I'll probably continue to use this as reference.

I am a ham radio operator and quite comfortable talking on the radio, yet I found this book to be a valuable resource in how to properly communicate with the tower and air traffic control. I would expect it to be that much more valuable to someone who is not familiar with radio procedures or to whom the prospect of keying a microphone and talking to someone is scary. It covers all the way from your first communication with Ground and then the Tower, to Flight Watch, Flight Service Stations, Class G through Class A airspace, and how to announce your intentions at an airport not serviced by a control tower -- and even airports serviced by a control tower at a different airport. I recommend this book to anyone considering flight training.

As a student pilot with under 15 hours as I write this, talking to the tower, and especially responding to complex instructions is unnerving to the point that a few times I told the instructor to reply instead.

This book takes the guesses and uncertainty off of it. It explains in clear and concise language and examples how the system operates, what to do and what to say and what not to say. When to challenge the controller, and when and how to ask for help.

Recommended!

This book gives practical examples on how to talk flying VFR under various conditions. It is quite good. I fly through class B now with no issues talking on the fly. The only reason I give it 4 stars is that it can be better organized. It's organized by airspace, but it mixes other topics within those chapters. I think it would be better to organize by scenarios so its easier to look up.when you want to review.

As a private pilot that has been out of the game for a few years, this book provides a variety of scenarios (with sectional maps) and the proper responses to them. It was a helpful review and would also be an excellent learning tool for the young flier. If you can find it for a good price it is worth grabbing if even for a quick review before a cross country trip.
