And... we know “eight thousand” is feet, you don’t need to say “eight thousand feet”. Nobody is “eight thousand bricks” high.

and..... why is a runway “one five”, yet a time “time three zero” numpty? It’s “Runway one five”, and just “three zero” for time. Unless international, and for clarity.

Just read the AIP, and especially note the prefixes “heading”, and “recleared”, “requirement”.

And..... unless you did a special ops mission into the Iraq desert for a week, shave first officer “open mike”.

Be glad the 'with you' virus hasn't infected r.t. there (or has it?). It's endemic in the USA, passed on by instructor after instructor to students from all over the world.

​​​​I’d be over the moon if folks would stop informing centre that they’re not intending on violating controlled airspace on climb.

Uuuugh......the 'personalisation' and 'stylized' radio calls, "IFR Taxi's" and informers of EVERY leg of the circuit along with the informers of 'This Time' are here to stay unfortunately. It's unfortunately more humorous than annoying to see the chopped liver that emanates from the cockpit these days.

NevilleN,
How would they cope with the informality, the lack of bulldust and just how relaxed and fun it can be, as ACMS says.

And yet, by some miraculous stroke of luck, their air safety record is far better than Australia, and has been for a long time.

A lot of the nonsense heard would not be there, if proper radio procedure, INCLUDING how to send a position report as per. the recommendations of Annex X, Vol.2 was part of initial training.

Said doc., or the way it is dealt with in the NZ AIP and associated docs., or the UK CAP 413 have no equivalent in anything from CASA or Airservices.

Tootle pip!!

"at all times" is another one that should be blue-toothed to the Bang Seat

Just make the calls as per the book, or get out of the sky. Simple really.

We don't hear many septic tanks over here. Thank goodness. Cringworthiness 10/10.

Atlas Shrugged, or Jesus Wept, and even Griffo, were you unable to hear the pilot's tongue in his cheek?
Of course.

The comment "turning finals" is relevant to the non-standard calls
I know.... my point being that there is no such place....... there is no "turning crosswinds", "turning bases" or tracking "upwinds" , so why do some people insist on using the word 'finals'

“Traffic South of Tindal, ABC Ten miles South of Tindal, Traffic South of Tindal”. What genius came up with that broadcast, to the entire Southern Hemisphere three times?

“Tindal Traffic xxxxxxxxxxxxx Tindal” , is the broadcast.

Unfortunately the good captain had a bastard child, who can be heard on any CTAF- “ All stations Jabiru 012345 taxies from Aero club to fuel bowser.”

Or how about, as often heard from the winged bathtubs at Caboolture, "turning base finals"??

Bloggsie,
The ICAO book, not the "Anal Australian" one, please.
The US really irritates your fuffle valve doesn't it --- I hope you don't compromise your prejudices and stoop to flying an aeroplane built in such an apparently aeronautical incompetent company.
Tootle pip!!
