    Two questions... When a tower (local) controller issues a landing clearance including the "number" the aircraft is "in line" (Delta1234 rwy xx number 2 cleared to land) is the pilot "required" to read back "number 2" or can they just stick with rwy xx cleared to land callsign?

    What is a dogleg mean in ATC?

    I listen to often and occasionally hear "right dogleg for XX runway". What is a dogleg pattern? I know the parts of a standard traffic pattern, fairly certain dogleg isn't one of them. Anyone know?

    Metar confusion?

    I'm confused on this metar in conjunction with what the tower was issuing clearances with today at MSP. I don't have the whole thing...but right after the winds it said "-DZ R/30L 5000PV6000" Light Drizzle. I know that much. Is the rest Runway 30L Visibility Variable (V) between at least (P)...

    unsure of medical testing procedures

    Is the ATC medical different than a Class II Medical from the faa? As a student, can I go take a class II med and get it over with, and then just keep that renewed...or does the FAA issue their very own test upon employment? I posted this in another thread but maybe I'll get more answers here...

    Eyes off by 5 lines... 20/25 with correction?

    My eyesight in my left eye is 25/20 with contacts. My right is 20/20, and with both open I see perfect 20/20. Do I have any chance of passing a medical test to become an ATC (EDIT: or a commercial airline pilot)? Or getting a special issuance/waiver?
