Scenario-Based Question (SBQ): You're cruising along IFR or VFR, your choice, and talking to the radar air traffic controller who said, "Radar contact," in the previous question. The controller tells you to "... Contact Ailerona approach, 123.9." You acknowledge, change frequencies and call the next controller. This controller asks you to "Ident." You should:


Press and hold your microphone button for 3 seconds.


Press and hold your transponder's Ident button, until the controller says, "Radar contact."


Press and release your transponder's Ident button.


State your aircraft identification.
