"Let the abuse start..." JFK GND.
« on: June 25, 2007, 01:43:34 PM »
I caught this last night at around 0234Z on JFK ground.
A pilot broadcasted a passenger announcement on ground but the controller wasn't gonna let him get away with it.  :-)

I can proudly say that I have not made a PA over the radio, or a transmission over the PA.....yet

Well done by the controller in opening the flood gates.  I've heard him before he's a pretty cool guy to work with.

Hehe. I'm glad I caught this.
Oh, and if anyone is wondering... I didn't cut off the first part. The pilot must of somehow switched from PA to Ground halfway though the announcement.

It was scanning the clearance frequency, when that transmission ended the scanner switched over.

It was like all the other pilots were waiting for Ground's blessing. When he gave it they pulled no punches. lol

Sometimes controllers will get irritated if all the pilots miserably step on each other trying to get their word in to the poor guy, but of course if he asks for it, there's no problem.  :-)

Quick question, and forgive me, I am not a real pilot. How does one get the PTT and the PA buttons mixed up? Are they one in the same? Do you have to switch something to enable the PTT to transmit PAs? Thanks.

Depends on the aircraft. There are normally two buttons, but at the end of a long day it's pretty easy to depress the wrong one. At least it's normally all in fun.

On the CRJ, it's the same PTT, but a different position on a rotary switch.  You have to switch from Com-1 4 positions over to the PA, then push another button to get to the PA.  Not sure who/what type of aircraft this is though

That's a beautiful thing that the controller invited it on, love it.

Thank you for this clip.

I shared it with my whole family of pilots we all had a good laugh.

Im not being biased, but i think pilots can be some of the nicest people in the world. I have met a few that i call the "Short man syndrome" There 5'4 and full of themselves and very egotistical.

But this clip is just another reason why i want to pursue an aviation career!

There was another PA (over the tower frequency this time) a few days ago at a time when things were pretty busy, and the controller seemed less than enthused.

Uh....I think it was "Where's our gate?"  and not the arcade.  Good stuff anyway.  I'm transferring to CVG at the end of the month, so I won't get to play the JFK game every day anymore.  Oh shucks.....
