Do British pilots and air traffic controllers call Americans yankees?

Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1jZvlFmqQU Hi. I was watching this Boeing 757 having a bird strike in the UK and they says yankee or something. Are they talking about the American Airlines 767 jet in the background? If not, what are they talking about?

    All civil aircraft are referred to by Phonetic version of the last two letters of their registrations eg G-ALYP would be referred to as 'Yankee Papa' , or in the case of airliners by their flight code eg CY354 might be the code for a specific Cyprus Airlines flight and would be referred to as 'Charlie Yankie 354'.

    The Nata Phonetic Alphabet replaces letters with a word to make communications clearer because some letters sound the same over the radio or telephone eg 'S' & 'F' are easy to mistake. The words were chosen to be hard to confuse with each other even when the signal is bad. Here is a descriptionhttps://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_p...

The response was the tower acknowledging the mayday call and telling the pilot that he's cleared for any runway that he needs.

The pilot of the aircraft with the compressor stalls was calling "mayday mayday mayday" then explaining his problem. The response was the tower acknowledging the mayday call and telling the pilot that he's cleared for any runway that he needs.

Is it Boeing seven o seven or Boeing seven zero seven?


North Americans often say " Seven Oh Seven " (erroneously) -
We often also used " Oh " in flight numbers - such as " Clipper one oh three "
They often use " Oh " rather than " zero " when giving phone numbers.

What happens if a private Cessna 172 pilot tries to land at big airports like JFK or O'Hair when there is no emergency?


It's quite permissible to do so, however a general aviation pilot in a low performance plane should be ready for fast instructions and quite a bit of maneuvering to stay out of the way. The best time to do it would be at night. Here's a youtube video of one doing it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKvWn317tpU

Do you need to know all the IFR approach and stuff to get your PPL?


If you're going for a Private Pilot Single Engine Land (PPSEL) certificate you don't need to know anything about IFR approaches. You will learn to fly traffic patterns and all the maneuvers and procedures required for that and for safe flight, learn how to navigate, and learn about airplane systems. You can get a huge head start by looking at websites and you tube links from places like Boldmethod.com, MzeroA.com, and UND aviation.

Is it common that small local airports don't have radars?


It is very common for small airports not to have a control tower, radar, or communications equipment. There are very well developed procedures for "uncontrolled airports". There is a standard traffic pattern that aircraft fly at almost all airports (consisting of a downwind, base, final, and upwind leg) and there are specific radio calls that are supposed to be made at certain points in the pattern. Most airports have a fixed base operator to supply fuel and services. They often monitor the common traffic frequency and supply some info to pilots about wind direction and runway in use. There's also a specific way to enter the pattern - usually at a 45 degree of the downwind leg, Yes it's possible for aircraft to collide and it happens several times a year - usually when a low wing airplane is above a high wing airplane in the pattern. Neither can see the other so occasionally that can happen.

Is there a speed limit for airplanes?


There are some speed limits for certain types of airspace. Airliners are always in contact with air traffic control and in order to keep the required separation of aircraft sometimes the controllers will ask the pilot to maintain an airspeed. More than likely you experienced a slowdown while your plane was beginning an approach, During approach controllers have to maintain specific spacing between aircraft and often must slow them down behind slower aircraft. Your plane very likely was slowing down from approx 570 knots to 250 knots or less for the approach.

Why do all transmissions between air traffic controllers and pilots have to be in English?


English has been established by the ICAO as the universal language of aviation. It was necessary to establish one language for international flights to ensure safe and understandable communications world wide.

What does Air Traffic Controllers mean when they say "12 o'clock" to a pilot? or 6 o'clock ?


it is the relative direction around the aircraft using a clock face. 12 oclock is in front of the pilot, 6 oclock behind. 3 oclock to the right etc. it is also used with high, level or low. for example, a contact off to the right and above the flight level of the pilots aircraft would be 2 oclock high.

What are the possible reasons a plane would do this?


Departure controllers have blocks of airspace with altitude limits. Chances are that there was other traffic that they needed to have out of the way so they held him at 5000 before clearing him to the next controller's airspace.

How can air traffic controllers determine when it's clear for takeoff and landing?


They go through very intense training to be able to sequence aircraft safely. If there's a controller then there's at least a Class D area and all aircraft operating in that area must contact tower and let them know where they are and what they want to do. This is the information that lets them determine when it's clear.
