VFR flight through Houston Bravo - Video

VFR flight through Houston Bravo - Video

Flight with a friend from KSGR Sugarland TX to KUTS Huntsville TX.



Video includes both ATC and in plane communications.  I hope this video gives the ATC side of the mic insight from the pilot's point of view on the complexities of working in Bravo airspace such as looking outside the window, situationally aware of where you are, radio congestion, frequency changes galore.

As I admitted in the video, had I been flying, the possibility of me busting Bravo airspace would have been very real because I missed a small section that lowered the Bravo floor to 3000.  I had studied the flight as if I was PIC and still missed that small chunk of airspace.

I will post the return flight under this thread.

As always input most appreciated!

Return trip from Huntsville TX to Sugarland TX through Houston Bravo



7 3/4 minute video including ATC transmissions of us being advised targets appear likely to merge, another plane asking one thing and getting another, birds look like planes, jets look like pistons, and everything else in between.

Only thing we may have missed was "Superman"   It's a bird, it's a plane.
