SNFO/SWSO VOICE COMMUNICATIONS
CHAPTER FOUR
Example
SNFO/SWSO:
"Atlanta Center, KATT 150, 27 miles northeast of
Monroeville at 3500 feet, request IFR clearance to
Navy Pensacola as filed."
CENTER:
"KATT 150, Atlanta Center, roger, squawk
0406."
NOTE
When VFR and initially contacting a controlling agency for an IFR
clearance, it is beneficial to minimize the amount of numbers in the
call. Using the quadrant (N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, or NW) will
result in clearer communication flow. Altitude is not necessary
when picking up an IFR clearance unless requested by ATC.
2.
Dial in the new squawk.
CENTER:
"KATT 150, radar contact, cleared present
position to Navy Pensacola as filed, climb and
maintain flight level 200."
SNFO/SWSO:
"KATT 150, cleared as filed, leaving 6500 for FL
200."
409. PILOT TO METRO SERVICE
The USAF Air Weather and the Naval Oceanographic Command operate a Pilot to Metro
Service (PMSV) at selected facilities to provide aircrews direct contact with weather forecasters
or observers. PMSV (METRO) facilities manned by forecasters are listed as "Full Service"
while PMSV facilities manned by weather observers are listed as "Limited Service".
Keeping abreast of current and forecast weather is your responsibility. PMSV will be used to the
maximum to update forecasts and obtain the latest weather observations.
You may wish to contact Metro or monitor ATIS while enroute to get an update on the weather
at your destination. Look at the diagram in the Flight Information Handbook to find the closet
PMSV and the appropriate frequency. (See Figure 4-6.)
