Yes, I know you’re IFR.
Yes, I know ATC has you covered with traffic advisories and alerts.
Yes, I know you have TCAS or ADS-B In.
When you’re in VMC, keep clearing for traffic. You wouldn’t believe what can pop up as unannounced traffic, in the most unexpected place. I wrote about a surprise encounter with a VFR aircraft at ATCcommunication.com.
P.S. When ATC says, “Turn right immediately,” turn right immediately.
