Line up and wait
Prepare yourself and your students for a change in ATC terminology expected to take place on September 30, 2010. Instead of the familiar phrase “taxi into position and hold” the controller will issue “line up and wait” instructions to indicate you may taxi onto the runway and wait for a takeoff clearance. This change brings the United States in line with standard ICAO phraseology. Go online (www.asf.org/luaw) for details.

ASF's 'Flight Risk Evaluator'
AIRLINE PILOTS CONSULT COMPANY

guidelines when it comes to go/no-go decisions for any given flight. But the rest of us are mostly left to our own judgment when deciding about an upcoming flight. Outside pressures and busy schedules can influence that decision and make it outright difficult to adequately assess the flight’s safety. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to tap into a knowledge base to sort out the risk factors? Enter the AOPA Air Safety Foundation’s Flight Risk Evaluator, which provides you and your students with a formal approach to judge the safety of a proposed flight. The go/no-go choices are yours, but because the feedback is based on the pilot’s profile and expected flight conditions, the decisions are meaningful to the planned flight operation. The Flight Risk Evaluator has three sections: An entertaining introduction to learn about flight-risk elements; a quick evaluation and personalized list of guidelines based on just a few details; and a detailed evaluation, which rates the flight’s safety across several areas based on more extensive information about the runway, airport environment, weather, aircraft, and pilot proficiency. Go online (www.asf.org/flightriskeval) and introduce this nifty application to your students. —Machteld Smith
