If a pilot is not judged as a competent pilot, can a controller cancel their clearance and not allow them to depart? Can they have them return to their starting airport? What can a controller do in that kind of situation? Edit 1: This is a hypothetical situation. Edit 2: From a controller POV
When I receive clearance in the UK, they just give me a SID, a squawk and sometimes the active runway, but when flying in the U.S I receive a transition level and a departure frequency. I understand the frequency and the rest of the clearance, just a bit unsure on what is meant by " transition." Would really appreaciate some help on this as the U.S seems like it's so fun to fly in! It always seems so busy and most airports have at least 1 Controller active which means there will never be a 'quiet' section of my flight.
Hi, I was flying out of LL this morning, under the superb control of LON_CTR (Fraser, I think it was), I think I heard him make a broadcast on frequency about automatic clearances are available .....EGTT..... I didn't get it all, but I wondered what it is? An alternative to calling for clearance? Interested to know, thanks.
