If you aren't using FGCOM and your just flying around, you can use the chat messages to send many of the requests or responses which are predefined.

If your using FGCOM at a "real" manned ATC event, check out the communication thread at MDTERPS TGA website.

You can scroll through all the requests by pressing the "-" (minus) sign on your keypad to bring up the atc menu, or if you really wanted to get into it look at the chat-menu-entries.xml in your data/atc folder.
