|Cell phones have become an essential tool in our flight bag. Remember getting a void-time-clearance at an airport where you can't raise ATC on the ground? 1) Call ATC from the pay-phone, 2) Get a 10-minute window, 3) Mad-dash to the plane, 4) quick run-up, 5) taxi too fast to the runway threshold, 6) depart quick, without using checklist, before the window expires. Doesn't sound like the safest way to run a railroad. |
With a cell phone, simply call ATC from the plane when you're fully ready to go. Challenge: with the engine running, it's hard to hear the cell phone. In order to make a cell practical you need to patch it into the aircraft audio. Enter: the cell phone adapter. Call ATC, call the FBO, use in an emergency ? lots of good reasons to be able to talk and hear over the cell phone with the engine running. There's really no good reason to be without one of these in every airplane with headsets.
