Communications: Let’s Talk
In external-load operations many times the pilot relies heavily on the communication from the ground crew. Ground crew members will learn hand signals for directing the pilot as well as how to give the pilot verbal directions. Proper communication can make all the difference when it comes to talking in a pilot with a load or alerting the pilot of potential hazards.
