    Dear friends and followers,welcome back to my channel! Today's video will all be about "WHAT IS A SQUAWK CODE, and what is it good for?"
    As you get your IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) departure clearance, the ATC controller will give you a pre assigned four decimal code. After acknowledging the clearance you use the little numbered keyboard on your transponder to enter the give four decimal code and depending on your airline or airport procedure you set the transponder to the AUTO position. Meaning your transponder is set and ready to transmit that code and that code you´ve just set that´s the so called squawk code.
    So as take off, and the transponder comes fully active you turn up on the ATC controllers radar screen, but it won´t just be a blip indicating your airplane is in the air, it will also show the 4 digit squawk code, your current altitude plus your callsign. As you are now under radar control, the ATC controller can also look up your flight plan, so he knows where you´re flying to, the amount of passengers, crew, and fuel you have on board, and much more.
    Now depending on the airplane size and manufacturer, the transponder can come in different modes. For instance, little Cessnas or other smaller aircraft within the General Aviation category don´t necessarily need a transponder which transmits the airplanes´ altitude. Therefore a mode“Alfa" transponder will do the job, meaning it will only transmit the airplanes position and squawk code.
    But be aware the places where you can fly without an altitude reporting transponder are becoming less and less.
    To be on the safer side, your plane has to have a Mode "Charlie" transponder which transmits the planes´ position and its barometric altitude and squawk code. Obviously, those are a little bit more expensive, but the ATC controllers and other pilots benefit from investment and adding a TCAS system to it, you´ll feel a whole lot safer when flying around on weekends where the airspace is packed with weekend warriors.
    And as just shown before a mode Sierra transponder, which is above all other transponder modes and can also be used for data link messaging.
    But more to see within the video.
    The preset codes you have to memorize for are
    7500 Hijacking
    Seven Five - Man with a knife
    7600 Loss of communications
    Seven Six I need my radio fixed
    7700 Emergency
    Seven Seven - I´m falling from heaven
    The follow up video about the Transponder and it´s buttons and switches will follow soon.
    Thanks for watching, all the best your "Captain" Joe

(something's defective in the cabin) Seven Three, you just said WHAT to me?! (unruly passenger) Seven Four, you smell like a boar!

I would hope that 7500 shows up as a different number in the cockpit display. 7500 isn't very helpful if it's public information that hijackers would know about.

John Deltuvia cockpits are now hardened environments, can’t just get in there anymore, unless it’s a Spirit flight, where the damn cockpit doors don’t stay shut,and yes there’s a YouTube video showing that, but your normal commercial flight, hijackers can’t get in there, and even if they do, odds they’ll see the code, and kill pilots solely because of that, are tiny. Nowadays terrorists will try and bring the aircraft down by blowing it up, like the shoe bomber, not fly it into buildings.

+Mick Funny Hijacker gets into cockpit. Says not to contact anyone - but pilot has already squawked 7700. Hijacker sees 7700 on readout and puts a couple of bullets into the crew as a warning - maybe even kills the pilot and has the co-pilot take over.

Life is funny ain't it. First i asked the question to myself, what is the fun of simulation games (flight or even trucks). So I stumbled on airforceproud95 or something, a guy having fun in a flight simulation game trolling the shit out of players. There i started to get interested in the way how radio communication is done and heard the squawk code over and over again. Now.. Captain Joe, you just made me realize that in fact flying a plane, perhaps even landing it, is doable. Probably easier then one might think. BUT! the following stuff isn't. IFR, VFR, ILS, SQUAWK, MAYDAY PANPAN RETARD ROTATE ATC GROUND TOWER and what not you guys have. Bloody hell, a week ago i knew none of this. A life, where can i download one? :) Anyway, thx Joe! I have some idea of what a squawk code is :)

Daeva83B Nowadays the plane lands itself, you just enter the data and let the plane do the rest. But understanding what is happening, that’s the hard part. Plenty of Can A Passenger Land A Jet videos out there, they all come down to entering the information ATC provides you.

Captain Joe, a question. I'm a Flight Simmer, and have been wanting to start simming with VATSIM, however I'm wondering, what does ATC mean when they say for example "fly BETTE departure"?

Vor Monat

A2DJP

jdolaktv not really. Yes you go to the particular waypoint, but depending on the SID. E.g. I checked BETTE, it is east of JFK airport So as per the chart (I am not going exact details, so don’t quote me on it), if taking off from runway 4, you take off, take a right turn to heading 100 then climb to 5000 feet and then radar vectors to BETTE will be given by ATC eventually

A useful feature would be that if you dial in 7500 on your transponder it displays for a second or two then switch to displaying a random four-digit number while continuing to squawk 7500 so that the hijacker doesn't see this if he looks at the instruments

Many people here are asking how can you enter this 7500 code if your hijacked. I'm guessing you have to hope the hijacker doesn't know these things and let's you continue to fly and you can enter the code. I just started watching Airforceproud95, very entertaining guy and now been presented this video by YouTube probably because of that. It's sad that we live in a world where people do things to hurt innocent others and pilots need these codes.

to turn the transponders off is the MH equivalent of going UFO and is basically the worst no-no in the commercial industry. Aside of being forced to concentrate on safe flying communication is the lifeblood of any commercial pilot. it is any pilots duty to alert ground ATCs to alarms as soon as it is safe to do so.
