Hey all, so in case you didn't see the announcement video, we launched a new scripted podcast last Wednesday called Extremities. It's all about why and how people live in earth's most isolated and extreme settlements. In season one, we tell the story of Pitcairn Island--a small British territory in the South Pacific with just 50 people. It's 300 miles/500 kilometers away from the nearest other inhabited place, 3000 miles/5000 kilometers away from the nearest city, and 10,000 miles/16,000 kilometers away from its capital city in London. The twist and turns that Pitcairn takes through history and the explanation of why and how Pitcairn still exists today are fascinating, in my biased opinion. Episode 1 is out now, episode 2 comes out tomorrow, and I'd love it if you'd give it a listen. Extremities is available at the following places: Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/extremities/id1467292185 Anchor: https://anchor.fm/extremities Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/3yXc8WTwbZcieQhdr3Y6ao Google Podcasts: https://www.google.com/podcasts?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy9iZWJhNzBjL3BvZGNhc3QvcnNz Stitcher: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/anchor-podcasts/extremities Breaker: https://www.breaker.audio/extremities Overcast: https://overcast.fm/itunes1467292185/extremities Pocket Casts: https://pca.st/OW0M Podbean: https://www.podbean.com/podcast-detail/e7bgg-9466c/Extremities-Podcast RadioPublic: https://radiopublic.com/extremities-8gKAOL I hope you enjoy! -Sam

Ridiculously complicated system ! How many handovers for a 90 minutes flight already? System seems based from back when each control center had big radars on its rooftop and only knowledge of it's surrounding traffic. it's long gone, all the info is accessible everywhere, thru internet and redundancy with multiple satellite networks is possible. No more need for localized guidance thru cruise. But not enough push to centralize it yet, maybe the cost per flight is negligeable as is. But only if you don't account for the hidden cost in terms of delays thus productivity, and pollution this nonsense system generates. The impact on safety as well,....I guess pilots get fatigue and distraction for all those handovers, it's like they're a guest on a talkshow.... whilst working. I get the need for local control thru climb and descent thought. Maybe Eurocontrol is destined to slowly take over the high altitude control over Europe. Would make sense to provide high altitude guidance services for a fee. Some zones would migrate one at a time .

It could be, but making such a system pass certification would cost probably around 100bn$, if not more... It is slowly being worked towards. The communication protocols are already being used.

5:10 I think you meant 600, not 660. 600 (60,000ft) is the limit of Class A airspace, which is what I think you were referring to.

Why aren't ATC's replaced by algorithms? Wouldn't this be ripe for automation? Eliminate human error at the same time?

A pilot always needs to be in contact with ATC, hence eliminating a huge portion of it's job to automation. Communication is frequent and in the event of an emergency ATC needs to be notified immediately

I worked for Continental Airlines for over 20 years and flew into and out of Europe a lot. Now I know why so often our flights were delayed. One thing not touched on in this video is how mist airlines pad their schedules. Like Continental would do in the summer. Sometimes up to 45 minutes difference. Amazing.

Where did you get your info? It’s like 75% correct. You create terms when there are already agreed upon terminology and in many cases phraseology. One example is your use of “horizontal” instead of “lateral” and your inability to differentiate between ground control and ramp control. Also, “tower control” is actually “local Control” (FAA) or “Aerodrome control”. The telephony used to contact those controllers are the name of the facility followed by the position name such as “Heathrow Tower” or “Heathrow Ground”. Additionally there are many differences between ICAO and FAA procedures and terminology. Did you spend any time in the FAAO 7110.65Y or ICAO Doc 4444?
