Air to Ground: A Guide to the World of Air Traffic Control by Rose Marie Kern

The FAA for the most part is a faceless entity dictating orders which pilots must follow to keep our nation's skies safe. For over eleven years Rose has written monthly articles for many national and regional pilot magazines which provide easy understanding as to how the Air Traffic system works, and gives insights into the people and facilities pilots talk to every day.

Rose's book, Air to Ground compiles information from those articles useful to both student pilots and aviators who have long enjoyed soaring along highways in the sky. She shares both practical and humorous insights as well as glimpses into the bigger picture of Air Traffic Control.

"Air to Ground" is a phrase used to describe the frequencies used by the pilots when they speak to Air Traffic.

The book, Air to Ground, appeals to pilots, airport managers and the air traffic personnel who work in the U.S. and will greatly enhance the pilot's understanding of the National Airspace System, its procedures, and the people whose job it is to provide for the safe and efficient flow of Air Traffic.

Air to Ground contains current and historical data on the National Airspace System, the Air Traffic Control System, and aviation weather in a way that is friendly, easily readable and understandable to even the most novice pilot. It is not meant to replace the government's directives, but to supplement them.

The book includes information on:

  • Overview and History of the Air Traffic Control System
  • Flight Service Stations (FSS)
  • Air Traffic Control Towers (ATCT)
  • Departure and Approach Control
  • Enroute Air Traffic Control Centers (ARTCC)
  • Climates and Microclimates
  • Reference Pages

Although there are a few books that talk about Air Traffic on the market, no other book approaches the pilot from this perspective, it fills a vacancy long overlooked.
