The Basics

Not simply another pretty package, COMM1: Clearances on Request is jam-packed with the information you need. Popular instrument training expert Russ Lawton has written a series of briefings on the ATC clearance system and techniques for copying and reading back IFR clearances:

  • Every exercise offers helpful audio feedback and examples of expert copy techniques.
  • From Flight Plan to Clearance
  • Elements of a Clearance
  • Cockpit Organization
  • Requesting the Clearance
  • Copying the Clearance
  • Reading Back the Clearance


Practice, Practice, Practice

The program offers a series of 100 practice clearances. You get a Flight plan for each exercise, complete with a planned routing. You review the route on the included NOS Low Altitude Enroute Chart and then call up the Clearance Delivery controller (or Flight Service specialist, or Ground Control, etc.) to request the clearance. Then you copy the clearance (using the techniques learned in the briefings) and read it back to the controller, just like in the cockpit. If you miss the clearance, the controller can be asked to "say again".


At the conclusion of the exercise, you get a chance to review your performance and hear how an expert would have read the clearance back, as well as see the expert's notes.
