Signaling Techniques: Aircraft Vectoring Procedures
If you can contact a friendly aircraft with a radio, guide the pilot to your location. Use the following general format to guide the pilot:
- Mayday, Mayday.
- Call sign (if any).
- Number of survivors.
- Available landing sites.
- Any remarks such as medical aid or other specific types of help needed immediately.
Simply because you have made contact with rescuers does not mean you are safe. Follow instructions and continue to use sound survival and evasion techniques until you are actually rescued.
