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

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.

Why do so many pilots violate the rules and procedures of the traffic pattern at non-controlled airports ?


The AIM is not regulatory so there is not really any absolute rules to go by. The AIM does give procedures which should be followed but some pilots do not. In many cases they make it harder for the rest of us who do follow the AIM procedures. I was watching a YouTube video yesterday where a group of "supposedly" accomplished pilots flew a C172 from DAB to CDK. These hotshots proceeded to fly a 10 mile straight in to Cedar Key, not even apparently looking for NORDO traffic, thus ruining the trip as far as I was concerned.

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.

Why do air traffic controllers make bank?


From a pilot perspective, the pilot is ultimately responsible for all operation of the aircraft. This includes following all the instructions of an air traffic controller who often gives their radio commands so fast a stenographer couldn't keep up with it. Often an unbelievable amount of stress, but we can always ask them to repeat slower - though they frequently get a little sarcastic when you ask. Controllers, on the other hand, are responsible for sometimes dozens of aircraft in their sectors and many of them are not talking to the controller. I can imagine an equally huge stress trying to keep the planes that are talking to a controller away from the ones who aren't talking to the controller. So I'd call it fairly even.

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.

Why no whole-plane parachute system on commercial flights?


Aircraft too heavy. Weight is extremely valuable/expensive and the weight of a parachute system would be too heavy and costly, sacrificing room for paying passengers.
