GNS430 on the Airway by [email protected]
Hello, I was on the ground at an uncontrolled field. I got a clearance to "On departure fly runway heading Radar Vectors xyz VOR Victor xxx abc VOR" Before leaving, I programmed the entire route into the GNS430. Since it doesn't have airways, I "synthesized" them by just putting in the VORs and...

Jepps airport and VOR names ... how used? by akiley
Question A: I'm trying to get fast and accurate at programming routes (and possible reroutes) into the KLN94 and G1000 navigators our club planes are equipped with. I was wondering, does ATC usually give you the VOR 3 letter ID or the full name? If it's the full name and it's unfamiliar...

Closing IFR flight plan at uncontrolled field by paul kgyy
If you want to maintain IFR status until you're on the ground at an uncontrolled field, who do you call when you're on the ground, assuming there's no remote ARTCC radio facility within reach? FSS?

Navdata currency question by [email protected]
Hello, I have to make an IFR flight on or about the 15th of february. My plane has a garmin GNS430 in it, and the navdata is several years out-of-date. The GPS is also reporting navdata errors, so I need to get a new card. I'm going to buy a Jepp one-time update. The current Jepp cycle expires...

Tach Hours Recording INOP by Mitty
Anybody know whether this is an airworthiness issue? I was flying CAP cadets today and discovered the problem. We have a kid taking a private ride on Monday and would not like to switch airplanes on him. Obviously it's not on the required VFR equipment list, but since without it you no longer...

Definition of simulated instrument conditions by bsalai
Does anyone know if Simulated Instrument Conditions is defined anywhere? The reason for the question is whether one can log instrument time, say at night, when you don't look outside, but don't wear foggles or a hood? I can't find anything in the rules that defines simulated...

1 Attachment(s) Nasa Icing courses by Jim Burns
As many of you probably know, recent midwest weather has been a steady stream of low overcast, misty, and foggy days prohibiting most VFR flight and making IFR flights a spin of the icing roulette wheel. I thought it may be a good opportunity for us to review NASA's icing online...
