Episode 060 Show Notes

Topic of the show: RH interviewed an ATL Tower Air Traffic Controller and they discussed a listener question about helicopter operations in the ATL tower airspace. Thank you, JEC! Great audio feedback. And a special thank you to my anonymous contact in the Atlanta Tower! Your airport is a factory of airplanes and ATC keeps the machine running at full capacity! Thank you, ATL! How does this compare to TRIAD helicopter operations? How does a facility layout and airspace design effect operations?

Audio clip of AG buzzing the tower in a CH-47; call sign “Freight Train”.
