Radar Services and Operations

December 16, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

What ATC services are available to a pilot? What resources, on the ground and installed in the aircraft, are required to provide those services? How does radar work? What can radar see and not see? How does ADS-B fit in? What is the correct radio technique pilots should use to request service?  

These and other questions will be answered in this seminar about ATC radar services, known to pilots by many titles including “flight following.” Come to refresh or add to your knowledge of these important pilot resources.
