Tutorial: Instrument Approach Clearances with ATC Communications


Instrument Approach Clearances with ATC Communications and Phraseology

Learn about approach clearances and variations of ATC phraseology heard during the approach phase of an IFR flight. Cleared for the approach, Vectors to final, vectors across the final approach course, and full approaches with circle to land are some of the approach clearances and phraseology heard in this video covering instrument approach clearances.


Air Traffic Control is simulated with the help of two active Air Traffic Controllers.


If you are learning to fly and working on an instrument rating, a flight sim enthusiast using VATSIM or PilotEdge, or an already instrument rated pilot, this video has tips and examples of clearances and phraseology and procedures that are commonly used when operating under Instrument Flight Rules.
