Radio and Interphone Communications — Radio Message Format Last updated: 2017-07-10

When communicating with an aircraft, each transmission should begin with the aircraft's callsign, followed by your callsign, followed by the message. For example:


  • “American one forty four, Los Angeles Ground, runway two five right, taxi via charlie eight, bravo.”

After the first contact with an aircraft you may omit your facility identification. For example:


  • “American one forty four, runway two five right, taxi via charlie eight, bravo.”
