We now get the clearance (authorization to fly to a destination airport) from the delivery controller. The process is as follows.
# We get the Delivery frequency from the Airport information chart or the ATC Services in Range window (in this case, the frequency is 121.800 MHz) and tune COM1 to it (or connect on Mumble and
joining the delivery channel).
# We contact the controller and ask for the clearance. (It is the pilot who needs to initiate contact with ATC, not the opposite). ''Tip: note down the clearance on a piece of paper as it's difficult (and risky) to memorize it.''
# The Delivery controller gives us the clearance including:
* '''BAW1542:''' Contact Tower on one one eight decimal three two zero, Speedbird one five four two, bye!

== Lesson 3 == So now, it 's Tower's turn to get this plane off into the sky...
If you were awaiting a plane to land, you could just leave the plane queuing, but if you are ready to have him on the runway tell him to get into position on the runway. Remember, it is your job to get aircraft onto and off the runways as quickly as possible, so that planes can land and take-off quickly:
You: B-ELIO, runway 9, line up and wait.''' <br />''' B-ELIO: Runway 9, line up and wait, B-ELIO.'''
One thing to note, the phrase ' position and hold' is no longer used, since the FAA adopted the ICAO standard "line up and wait" ( since September 30, 2010) .
You may also use a conditional clearance, to make your job easier:
'''You: B-ELIO, runway 9, line up and wait [after the arriving B747 / following the departing B757]'''
The plane may give a call back when he's ready like 'ready for departure' or 'on the numbers'. If not, just wait until his icon stops moving and give him his takeoff clearance: '''You: B-ELIO, winds calm/110@15, runway 9, cleared for takeoff'''< br /> '''B- ELIO: Cleared for takeoff.''' The plane will commence his take- off roll, and - as soon as he is airborne - you want to get rid of him and get onto your next plane. You initiate the hand-off to approach, and handoff as soon as (s)he accepts. So now, onto approaches dealings...
== Lesson 4 ==
''(In this section the approach controller is presumed to be handling departures, as there are very, very rarely departure controllers. If there were a departure controller, (s)he would deal with a departing plane, and the approach controller would deal with any planes arriving)''
