Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!
So lets take a closer look at the famous follow me car itself. From the outside it definitely stands out with its black and yellow checkered paint job. That‘s the primary reason, to stand out from all other ground vehicles. On the roof you have a set of antennas to receive data link messages and to be able to communicate on all airport frequencies. Then the large infamous „Follow me“ sign which the driver controls from his dashboard and another feature you‘ll see in minute. Some follow me cars have extra bright lights mounted on their roof or bonnet to light up the taxiway or runway during night time operation.
Inside the car, the dashboard with the associated switches. A traffic screen to send and receive messages from dispatch and the mentioned radio to listen to given clearances. Besides standard safety equipment like a fire extinguisher, first aid kit etc. the car comes with an extra set of wheel chocks and these handheld wands, but more about in a minute.
But the primary purpose for what the Follow-Me car is best known for is of course, hence the name „Follow me“. So guiding airplanes around the apron and the taxiways, to or from active runways. If a Follow-Me car is requested upon landing, the driver, who is called a marshaller, will be notified by one of the air traffic controllers in the tower, either on a separate radio frequency or via data link messaging to his monitor. Once he receives and confirms the order, he positions his car where the arriving cockpit crew can see it best once they exit the runway. Then monitors the active ground frequency and waits for you to receive your taxi clearance. Once you’ve read back your clearance only then will the driver turn on his beacon and the “Follow me” sign and expects you to keep up with him and match his speed. Some of the of Follow me signs have arrows which will flash up once the driver uses his indicator, signaling the pilot that a turn can be expected and second now. Some also have a trigger in the handbrake, switching the follow me instructions to Stop!
But see more in the video ...
Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video!
Wishing you all the best!

  • Using a two-door sports car as an FMC is just stupid. It's low, and the cockpit is small which means that the operators struggle to get in and out. It's not designed to run primarily at low speeds. There is less space for equipment. Oh, and they are more expensive, on top of it. A VW Kombi is a far better option.

  • Is there a extra cost involved for using the follow me car on an airport? Does the cost get paid by the airline or is it free in airport parking and operational costs.

  • I live in Chicago and I can see why they don't do Follow-Me cars. On average the airport handles ~100 flights per hour. If it takes a Follow-Me car 15 minutes to lead a plane in and 5 minutes to get to the next plane then one car can handle 3 planes per hour. So you need 33 cars to do the job and triple that for a 24-hour shift. Near 100 cars and people. Granted slow times like the late night are different than the busiest times but to allow for sick-days and vacations and whatnot you are still probably looking at 50 cars/people to do the job (guessing of course...big ballpark on this one). Pay them $35,000/year and that is $1.75 million/year. Add in benefits and it is even more. Then add in the cars. Let's say $15,000/each (generous) and there goes another $750,000. Add in maintenance and gas and mechanics to service the fleet. This is the US. Screw safety if it costs them money. Find your own way to the gate. Someone needs a new yacht.

  • Captain Joe referred to the U2 as "did", "was", "needed" & "flew during cold war era" as if the Dragon Lady wasn't still flying. The USAF has no plans to retire the U-2, which first flew in 1955, despite previous attempts to replace the aircraft. The service still operates 33 examples of the "Cold War-era" spy plane. And they still use a chase car. 🙂
