1000ft AAL and above for frequency changes on departure

December, 8, 2021 by

It’s paramount that you award departing traffic the opportunity to gather themselves before you send a frequency change.

It’s tempting to just get it out of the way as quickly as you can but you have to put yourself in the shoes of the pilot.

It’s recommended that you wait till the aircraft is at or above 1000ft AAL at least, below 1000ft AAL is a critical phase of flight.
