A cargo pilot is experiencing hypoxia and trying to communicate with an air traffic controller.
A recording of the pilot's slurred words is included along with a transcript (on the slides) of the conversation between him and the controller, followed by FAA information on the causes and effects of hypoxia.
CFIs and ground instructors will find this material useful in teaching risk management, including the presentation of seminars to pilot groups for “WINGS” credit. This slideshow provides a solid base for a class or seminar lasting from one hour to 90 minutes.
The full listing of scenarios is as follows:
1. Hypoxic Pilots (including embedded audio file and transcript)
2. VFR, Trapped on Top
3. VFR, Trapped Below (embedded audio file)
3.5 A Takeoff Mystery
(This one is very brief—3 slides, no audio.)
4. The Radios and GPS Take a Holiday
5. Getting Around the Airport (a review of essential information)
This slideshow contains information and material from a variety of sources: Air Traffic Control (ATC) recordings, Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) reports, the Pilot’s Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge FAA-8083-25A (2008) and the National Air Traffic Controllers (NATCA) website. The scenarios are based upon true events.
I hope you find this to be a useful resource!
