The more I hear, the better prepared I will be for such clearances - post ones you've heard.

"at ABC 3.5 dme, turn right heading 150 and descend to 2000"

"cleared direct 37dme XYZ 334 degree radial"

"Hold on a sec while I look for your clearance" is one of my favorites. Hence when it's LVFR, I get a void time each time since the FSS can't seem to remeber to make it an IFR plan instead of VFR.

"I've got a revised routing, advise ready to copy" is my favorite.

"upon reaching FLXXX, cleared to XXX"

"Uh wha, you can't cancel now! Stay IFR and cancel on the next guy."

Heard the above today.

Fly SAFE!

Heard either JAX or ATL advise Citrus "I have a reroute, advise when ready to copy" and then she went right into the reroute without giving Citrus the option of saying they were ready.

Tower: "You guys are kind of high, I think you need a 360"
(We were on final, not high by the way)

That's always the best, when it's 2am, you check in 40 miles out, and approach says, "Cleared to land 17L, and taxi to parking. Have a good night."

Turn left heading 360, do you have the airport in sight? Yes. Cleared visual 27L (at Ohare).

This is at 4000' and 1 mile from Willt. Hellllloooooo

In-and-out of the clouds descending through about 4,000 on a practice approach, the center controller (who was VERY busy) sez, " Sqawk 1200, maintain VFR, and contact the tower." I politely suggested that even though this was only a practice approach, we were IFR AND IMC and needed an approach.

We were on the las vegas hoover 2 departure, and had just gotten switched to the departure controller:

Dept: "Baron XXX, cleared direct cowboy intersection"
Me: "Uhh, we're a slant alpha, we can't do that, can we get a heading?"
Dept: "Yeah, ok, I lost your strip, I was just taking a stab in the dark"

Makes you wonder...

So you admitted to breaking the regs on the radio (i.e. flying VFR in IFR conditions?). Do you want to get your ticket yanked?

He mentioned that he was IFR. Plenty of people practice approaches while IFR.

You dont practice an approach when IMC.... you shoot an approach.

As far as ATC losing a strip... its the same as you screwing up a freq change. Get over it and get used to it.

You sure about that?

a. "...Practice instrument approaches are considered to be instrument approaches made by either a VFR aircraft not on an IFR flight plan or an aircraft on an IFR flight plan."
