I'm trying to find any canonical examples of radio communication patterns at non-towered airports. The FAR/AIM has very little in terms of sample announcements, etc. The AC-90-66B (https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/AC_90-66B.pdf) doesn't offer much either. The best resource I could find so far is the "Say Again, Please" book by Bob Gardner, but I'm trying to find the guidelines from the "FAA's mouth."

  • $\begingroup$ Is AIM 4-1-9(g)(6) what you’re looking for? $\endgroup$ – StephenS Feb 23 at 19:49
  • $\begingroup$ avoid saying "taking the active" since there really is no defined "active" runway, despite what traffic may be currently using or wind may be currently favoring... $\endgroup$ – quiet flyer Apr 12 at 21:08
