"Best forward speed" approaches by Ben Jackson
A few questions about fast (by spamcan standards) approaches in busy terminal environments: 1) Is there any point in practicing any "best forward speed" approaches besides the ILS? 2) How fast is fast enough? Obviously 120kts is better than 90kts (maybe 1.5m less time after you turn onto the...

"Blocked" by Lee Elson
I'd like some input from those of you who are familiar with the working ATC environment. In a situation where a transmission to/from ATC is "interfered with" by a second transmission I've always believed that it is useful to let all parties know that the tranmission was blocked, even if I...

"center" or "approach" - why important by [email protected]
In a recent flight, I received the handoff, "27D change to Chicago Center on xxx.xx" Next call, "Chicago Center, Arrow 27D, 3000" Response: "Arrow 27D, this is not Chicago Center, this is Chicago Approach". Me "Arrow 27D, correction noted" Is this an issue of sufficient importance to waste the...

"cleared to ... when direct ..." by John Harper
Got an odd clearance the other day, on climbout from Santa Monica (IFR but in perfect VMC): "climb and maintain 6000 when direct Ventura". I took this to mean that someone would later clear me direct VTU, whereupon I would climb. However I never got such a clearance, and later an evidently nervous...

"Direct when able" by Mitchell Gossman
When instructed to fly a heading then "Direct XYZ when able", does a controller expect a call when you are in fact able and will be turning on course? Usually it is a trivial turn since the heading they give is a good guess for direct course. I've had conflicting experience. One time after being...

"Going for the Visual" by O. Sami Saydjari
A while back, I was with an experienced pilot, IMC, descending to land at my home airport. The airport is not in an environment where ATC will give vectors to final. As we approached, ATC asked which approach we wanted. He said that he was "going for the visual." The ceilings were right at the...

"K" in VOR identifier by Jack Cunniff
I had a first today; flying VFR across New England on this clear winter day, my route took me over Bradley, KBDL. I always tune VORs during my flights, so tuned Bradley's VOR. Identifying, though, was interesting. The morse identifier was FOUR characters, the last three of which were B D L. I had...

"Long Cross-Country" flight for commercial rating - must it be completed in one day? by Marty Ross
I would like to use a flight I took two years ago to show I've satisfied the "Long Cross Country" requirement for my Commercial ticket. On that flight, I flew from SMO to O22 (259NM), then to (124NM) in one day, then turned around several days later and flew back - CIC to SZP (353 NM) to SMO...

"normal" procedure for pop-up filing by paul kgyy
I was taught that, if I needed to file an IFR flight plan in the middle of a trip, I should contact FSS first to file and get clearance, then contact ATC. On the other hand, I hear frequent references in rec.aviation to pilots who just contact ATC directly. Does this depend on how busy ATC is -...

"Refusing to Handle You" by Mike Granby
So, an interesting thing happened today. I am at a fly-in at Hagerstown and about to head back to my home-base at York (THV). I can see from the PC they had there that there is a line of heavy rain and possibly thunderstorms blocking my route back. There is no way around it to the north, but there...

"Stand Alone" Boxes (Garmin 430) - Sole means of navigation - legal? by Richard
Probably this has been answered in this forum previously, but I can't find it. Sorry. I recently got into a friendly discussion with a knowledgable CFII who said a Garmin 430 could not be legally used as "sole means of navigation". Looking back, I think what he means is that "GPS" (even IFR...

"W" is JFK's son and Bush revenge killed Kennedy in 1963 by Ross C. Bubba Nicholson
JFK gave Barbara Pierce a lesson in life in the summer of 1944 (making her a "Cape Cod heiress"), and to her eventual husband, JFK gave a personal motive for revenge. Perhaps if George and Barb had announced their earlier engagement or even if George had given Barb a diamond instead of a cheap...
