Caught this a little while ago and had listen to the archive to make sure my hearing wasn't failing me.  Talk about a great "bring your kid to work" adventure!  I would have killed for this chance! ! ! ! !

Incredible. I'm so glad you guys can have fun with this kind of thing, as I know for a fact the authorities here would arrest the controller, and there would be a huge investigation.

Long may this trend continue! Glad we've got SOME common sense left in aviation.  grin

A few questions:

Was it legal for the kid to broadcast like that?
Are there any other clips or examples of this?

Probably not but who cares... he probably brightened a lot of people's day.  I hope the controller doesn't get in trouble for that.

The first Jetblue crew really seemed to enjoy the guest controller.  There was another "guest" child controller in the JFK Tower again this evening but I only heard 2 transmissions from him and his radio procedure was not as "polished!"   smiley

That is a great capture.  And the fact that he was kept to giving minimum instruction should not get anyone into trouble.
He was easier to understand than the guy giving taxi to position and hold  grin

The best I could do for my kids was bring them to a dirty warehouse!!  Maybe that dad would adopt me  evil

Definitely brought a smile to my day but if I was that controller, I wouldn't let me child do that, especially at JFK.  Maybe if I was at a small, slow traffic airfield then yeah but not at JFK.  You know for a fact the FAA can't be too happy about this.

I respectfully would disagree atcman23. It sounded like the dad was in control the entire time based on the pace of how things were going. It would not surprise me one bit he was controlling when the mic was on or not.

I also noticed the kid was given only two classifications of things to say.

1. clear for take off
2. contact departure

There was even one instance when the dad cleared a Jetblue flight to take off and there was wind information. The dad clearly had control there.


Risks? Not any higher from what I can gather based on the clip.

Why so quick to assume it was that controller's son? wink

Don't bet on it.  3rd party use of atc frequencies is authorized in limited instances and control instructions are expressly forbidden in those cases.  I personally know a controller who's been disciplined/suspended for doing exactly this when a group of kids was visiting the tower.  Flame away if you want/must, but we're not there to be cool or provide people entertainment.  We're there to separate aircraft.
