    You’ll just call back and ask us if we have it anyway.

    “Level 6,000 with airport information Zulu, request gps 8 approach”
    “Roger, let me know when you have Zulu”
    *facepalm*

    I'm thinking about checking in with something like this: "Information Romeo Airliner 1234 With Romeo at 4000 with Romeo."

    Romeo.

    Truth.

    But then "SouthernJets 16 one zero thousand with Victor"

    "X ray is now current"

    *gets X*

    *Only change is the observation time*

    :)

    Well, there is that too :D

    The biggest thing that caused us to chuckle on this one was how surprised he was that his Garmin wasn't going to somehow save the day. Typical reliance on technology to make it all right.

    Or

    "........... at one zero thousand with Bravo"

    "Charlie is now current"

    *Requests new ATIS through MCDU*

    *Bravo prints out again*

    That only tells the controller that you have the current wind, altimeter, and runway in use. Nothing on NOTAMs or advertised approaches.

    Yes. I inevitably forget the ATIS name just as I'm keying up :)

    Best though was controller asking a plane if he has information Papa for TUS. When the pilot answered yes, the controller said there's never information Papa at TUS. Lol

    There's an old joke

    "N1234 advise when you have information bravo"
    "We have bravo"
    "Well Sierra is current so let me know when you really have it"

    At U90, it's actually true. TUS only has ATIS Alfa through Mike, while the adjacent DMA only has ATIS November thru Zulu. I don't know if that's widely known.

    Yes. For example, you'll never hear ATIS papa at TUS, or ATIS Bravo at DMA, due to that. Am thinking because the two fields share the Charlie surface area may be why.

    I've heard that procedure used at other facilities too. Maybe GSO & INT.
