Over the past weeks, I’ve taken my first commercial flights since I started working towards my private pilot certificate. It has been really exciting to finally know what all the signs, numbers, and lights stand for on taxiways and runways. I tend to forget stuff easily so it was amazing to me that I could label/describe the function of each light/sign I saw with certainty. I should feel good about my upcoming FAA written test, right?
United Airlines used to have a ‘music’ channel on the armrest where you could listen to ATC on your flight. I’ve never been interested in this service ’til recently but it appears most flights have removed this feature – nooooooooooo. Aw.
I saw this really awesome looking tower while waiting for a flight at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport. What’s up with the open space anyways?
