Yes, You’re IFR, But Keep Clearing for Traffic

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.

It wasn't nearly this close, but it still got our attention. (stock photo.)

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.
