Sir:While
on
a
recent
flight
I
had
theunhappyexperience
of
hav
ing
to
listen
to
a
fellow
Army
Aviator
,
flying
a
L-26
twin-engine
aircraft
,
monopolize
a
vitalradio
channel (and
the
time
of
an
FAA
radio station) for
TEN
continuous
minutesin
a
mostun
necessary
and
unprofessional
manner.
Contacting
Millville
Radio
at
1750Z,
he
explained
that
al
though
he
originally
filed
Ft
Monmouth
as
a
passenger
stop,
a
passenger had been
on
the
ground
longer
than
expected
,so
he wanted
to
close
the
original
flight
plan
as of 1640Z
and
open
another

personsaboard.You
can
imagine
the
confusion
and
delays on
the frequency
as
the
pilot
tried
to
get this
maze
of
informationacross to
the
un
preparedFAA
operator. Reactions
of
those
of
us
listening on
the
channel were varied. The
situation was
both embarrassing
E=
and
dangerous.
During the
time
the
channel
was
tied
up,
at
least
two
pilots
w
ere
delayed
inmaking routine
position
reportsand
one pilot
tried
totellsomeone
he had an
emergency.
A
safer
,
more
efficient
method
offiling
is
available to
all
aviators.
The
following
specialnotice
is
listed
in
the
10
October

Airman's
Guide:
FILEFLIGHT PLANSBEFORETAKEOFF
Pilots are
urged
to
file
VFR
flight plans
in
person
or
by
tele
phone prior
to
departure.Radioshould
be
used
for filing flightplans
only
when
it
is
impossible
to
file
in
person or
by
telephone.This procedure
i$
necessary
in
order
to
avoid
congestion
on
the
already
busy
air-ground communications
channels.
The
s e
channelsshould
be
reserved
foressential
inflightcommunica
tions.
All
pilots
will
benefit
by
following
this
practice.
Radio
shouldbe
the
last
re
sort,
even
if
the other
methods
are
not
the
most convenient
or
may
be time
consuming.
If
it
isutilized,
the
aviator
must
realize
that
he
is
infringing
on
an
al
ready
overcrowded
channel.Asprofessional
aviators
weare
expected
to
use the
safest
,
most
efficient
methods
available
