Squawk What?
      07/10/17 11:14 PM

One of our Cessna flyers who prefers to remain anonymous tells a cautionary tale about losing his radio. So, he decided to fly VFR all the way from the west coast to the east coast and back, using only uncontrolled airfields. Since his panel was placarded “Communication Loss – Squawk 7600” he did so all the way across the country, and back.

It's good to note that 7600 is one of the emergency codes, and rings bells and flashes lights in ATC facilities... and that occurred for his entire Cessna trip coast to coast to coast. When he returned to California, the FAA politely contacted him to ask that he not do that again. No harm, no foul, but a learning opportunity.

Ahem!

Paul
