Procedure for Contacting Prescott Ground

This morning while enjoying a wonderful flight down to Payson and back for breakfast, ground control advised us of a procedure they’d like us to follow.

You may have noticed on exiting the Monarch hangar facility to taxiway delta, there is an orange circle with “1Y” (1-Yankee) painted on the taxiway surface. Ground control wants us to call ground when we’re at the 1-Yankee marker instead of back at the hangar. Using that method allows ground control to know exactly where the aircraft is and to help sequence the flow of traffic onto taxiway delta.
