What dose it mean when ATC say “revival” and then a number?


Recommended Posts

Hi Ori,

can you maybe give us a bit more of context? Where was this - approaching an airport? enroute? during clearance?
It could be a SID or a STAR you have been cleared on - those usually consist of a waypoint name and a number and potentially a letter - but without context, this is all guesswork.

Cheers

Not familiar with Gatwick but I'm rather sure this was some misunderstanding and the controller actually said something different. There are some SIDs with a 5 but all have letters afterwards as they are per-runway - in such a case just ask him/her back about that part. Maybe it was "number 5" or something about an inbound at 5 miles out or the QNH (1015 or 995?) or something totally different like joking with you if you had been disconnected several times before?... Likely can only be clarified but the persons involved or someone controlling EGKK. 🙂

I guess he told you "(you are) number 5" or "QNH 1015" or  "hold (at) Juliett 5".
