AUDIO: Cal Controller – Cool dude or chauvanist pig?

An an air traffic control audio tape that surfaced on 4 April from makes public what so many male pilots (not me, of course…) think or say in private any time they hear a sexy voice on the frequency.

Unfortunately, for this controller, the cat’s out of the bag.

The action involves a Learjet 60 flying from Page Municipal airport in Arizona to Hayward Executive airport near San Francisco – see overiew below.

The voice getting all the attention was the woman (presumably) flying N358JA, the Learjet 60, which is registered to Jet Advantage of Fort Lauderdale.

So, is the controller just being a guy, or should the FAA slap him on the wrist for letting his mind wander?

Take a listen…
