Question for the ARFF heroes: WHAT DOES "CONDITION ONE CHARLIE" MEAN?
I hear this get broadcasted over the speakers in the Fire Hall when Tower calls about an emergency inbound. Are there other codes too? What do they mean?
Are you sure? Because at busy airports like Heathrow or LAX they've got a plane landing every minute, and you can see them all lined up ready to land. So how does that work if you don't mind me asking?
I hear ATC's tell pilots things like these, but what is the difference between them? I kinda think "Cleared on Route" might be the Canadian version of one of the others, but I'm not sure.
There might be even more instructions that could easily be confused with the ones I've listed, so if you you...
Dumb question I know...
I'm doing an essay for school about why Airbus is better than Boeing.
I KNOW BOEING IS GREAT TOO,
But for this specific case, I need pro-airbus points.
I've thought of quite a few, but if you could suggest anything you find or think of... It would be most appreciated...
I've noticed that a lot of ATCs in Europe use the command "Line up and wait behind next landing aircraft", however I've never heard it used in Canada or the US. Is it not allowed in North America, or just rare?
