Hayward Tower Operations
August 22, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
San Carlos Flight Center invites Michael Osburn, an Air Traffic Controller at Hayward Executive Tower to discuss how pilots can better understand local procedures and ATC instructions. Michael will provide a big picture view of air traffic in the Bay Area, what ATC see’s of pilots and airplanes on their radar, then narrowing down to how that flow affects Hayward and their daily operations. After, Michael will delve into Hayward Noise Abatement Procedures, and its relevance to different airspaces, while also keeping emphasis on the importance of pilot understanding of ATC instructions. He will also relay how failure to understand ATC instructions can result in incorrect readbacks, runway incursions, and even larger incidents.
