More On Preflight Communication

    Although it is your responsibility to inform the tow pilot where you want to go, it’s sometimes wise to ask for suggestions.   A tow pilot or line person who has just participated in numerous launches may have better ideas of where ‘the perfect spot’ is.   If you do solicit advice, however, understand that conditions can change rapidly, and there are no guarantees.   Either way, communication beforehand can prevent a great deal of needless frustration – and post-flight communication also can be very beneficial.
