Earning Wings: Flight 6 – Talking to the Tower

This lesson was a bit overwhelming for Brady. He navigated to another airport and communicated on the radio for the first time. Doing that while also still learning to fly the airplane in a traffic pattern was a handful. He found if he concentrated too much on the radio communications, his flying suffered and vice versa. It seems like a simple thing, talking on the radio, but it’s amazing how much it can distract someone from flying.

This is a video series that details Brady Lane’s experience (EAA 808095) and process in learning to fly and earning his sport pilot certificate. These were recorded in 2008 and 2009, but remain relevant today for anyone learning to fly.
