Cancelling IFR in Bravo airspace by Terence Wilson[_2_]
On a few occasions I have filed a departure procedure to a nearby intersection just to get on top (comments section reads "IFR to VFR on top"). After breaking out of the clouds and advising ATC of the bases and tops, I usually cancel IFR and proceed "own nav" with flight following. Which brings me...

Couple of videos (Cessna 182 out of Oakland) by Terence Wilson[_2_]
During a training lesson last Sunday out of KOAK I attached a camcorder to the dash of the club's new Cessna 182. In the first clip you'll see us passing through a layer at 1000 AGL to get on top. The second video shows our flight from Byron back to Oakland, finishing with the ILS 27R approach....

ASR Approach - Doing the Controller a Favor by [email protected]
I was asked if I would accept an ASR approach into a satellite airport for controller training. I said, sure no problem. I got a wide vector that put me on a 15 mile final. The controller gave me a "10 miles from airport, complete pre-landing checklist". I've never heard that one before - it...

OT Lightning video by [email protected]
Good time for admiring the skies when we shouldn't fly anyway. My second attempt at putting together a video of lightning I took at my house. Mother nature was very cooperative as I had a cell approximately 5 miles to my west "strutting 'er stuff" with at minimum 1 Cloud to Cloud every 2 seconds...

Garmin 430 question by [email protected]
I was wondering how to program this into the 430, and if it is even possible. Say you are east of a VOR and ATC gives you a vector to intercept the 270 radial FROM the VOR and track away from the VOR on that radial and intercept an airway. The clearance went something like this: "Glasair 470XX,...

I know this is an IFR forum but your opinion is appreciated. Scenario: you are receiving VFR flight following and are handed off to another controller. You call up the new controller to make initial contact. According to a controller I overheard yesterday, this callup is incorrect: "Name...

I dedicated my last couple of flights (as well as a flight commercially) to really, and really enjoy the privilege of viewing the clouds from the top down and that's what my latest video has been focused on. Images and videos are from the past three weeks. Video doesn't do the magic of flight...
