  1. Great show. Very relevant topic on being assertive with ATC and pre planning your options.
    Its brilliant in the USA to be able to fly into the larger airports, but i have been pushed into the “keep it low and tight request a few times.”
    Wont be accepting that in the future. Good points on requesting other safer options.
