AIR-TO-GROUND COMMUNICATIONS AND CONTROL FROM THE COCKPIT POINT OF VIEW

Abstract: Supersonic Aircraft required that both the aircrew and teh ground controller project their thinking well out in front of the aircraft. It should come as no surprise that the high speed of our new aircraft has required of the flight crew member considerably more attention to careful flight planning. Furthermore, the rapid transit of miles of geography has created the demand that we stick to our flight plan. A major revision to teh plan, received in the form of a clearance change while waiting for takeoff or a change received from the controller when once we are airborne, creates considerable excitement in the cockpit, to say the least.
