I saw that a few schools I applied to do not have a control tower at the airport. Radio procedures are an important part of training. Is not important that the university airport has one?
might want to take another look at your AFDThere's a whole lot more to it than the airport being towered or untowered, just keep that in mind.
You'll fly into both toered and untowered both during your training and after your training. Therefore, it's important to know how to operate in both situations.
This is why I like OU. I'll be flying out of KOUN, shoot some approaches at Will Rogers (with all the airliners), then go over to Wiley Post (untowered).
go down to purcell if you want an non-towered field. or dj perry. thats where i worked on STOL and non-towered radio calls. just outside OUN's airspace and you dont stay out of okc's airspace.Heh, good catch. I don't quite know why I thought it was untowered.
I have to disagree. I've done all my training out of a Class D airport so far and I haven't been stressed in the least. There's been 3-4 people in the pattern, but it's been completely fine.It is easier to teach a new student at an airport without a tower. That is just to much for a new student to handle. Besides it is less busy to be able to do pattern work, and first solos. The college program that I went to did not have a tower. We would just got to airports close by that had control towers.
