Garmin GPSmap 496 False Terrain Alert by Ron Gordon
Do any of you fly into KADS with a Garmin GPSmap 496? I'm getting a false terrain alert when flying the Rwy 15 ILS and am wondering if anyone else has this problem. I'm working with Garmin to resolve this, but so far what they have suggested has not solved the problem. When flying the...

4 Attachment(s) Leaving the community by David Brooks
One thing - one of so very many things - I learned in my five years of flying is that partisan politics does not fit into the cockpit. Most of my flight instructors have, I know, been to the right of me politically. I had a most enjoyable flight with CJ - although he has since earned my...

Hello, I'm sure I should know the difference between all of these... but it kinda starts to blur together. I'm sure there are others on here who'd like a refresher. Anyone out there want to explain the differences to us? -dr

TACAN by [email protected]
Is there an on-line directory of TACAN locations? For example, the FAA lists on http://www.faa.gov/atpubs/LID/A_B.htm a TACAN on Bald Mountain Nevada, with designation GBM. However, there is more than one Bald Mountain in Nevada. I'm looking for lon/lat.

Confusion about when it's my navigation, and when it's ATC by Mxsmanic
I fly from KLAX to KLAS, using the FMC to handle most of the flight. With the routing I put in, the FMC decides on some default altitudes and includes required altitudes for the arrival and departure procedures I select. Part of what it does is to create a descent schedule from the nominal cruise...

Diamond DA-40 with G-1000 pirep by C J Campbell
I got a demo flight in a Diamond DA-40 equipped with the Garmin G-1000 glass cockpit this morning. We departed IFR from Tacoma Narrows and flew west for some maneuvers. This plane was the second one out of the factory with the G-1000. I had a difficult time maintaining my altitude; the altitude...

How to get IFR Clearance enroute? by Stimbo
What are the recommended procedures in obtaining an IFR clearance enroute? Flying from NJ to FL, I prefer to fly VFR, but undoubtedly I will encounter IMC along the way. If I filed IFR in advance, it takes 1/2 hour or more to clear it through ATC. I obviously cannot wait 1/2 hour if I encounter...

GNS 430W vs GNS 480 by Ron Gordon
I'm going to add either the GNS 430W or GNS 480 to a Beach Bonanza and am wondering if any of you who fly with these GPS units have a recommendation? I'd like a very capable IFR GPS with integrated NAV/COM abilities, which I'll couple to my S-TEC 50 Autopilot with GPSS. Both the 430W and 480 are...

1 Attachment(s) IFR with a VFR GPS by Wizard of Draws
OK, I broke down and sprung for the Lowrance Airmap 2000c instead of the 1000. Wow. Normally I rent a plane that has a panel-mounted IFR certified Garmin 430, but that may change due to circumstances beyond my control in a few months. Obviously I can't file /G IFR without a proper IFR GPS, but...

Cessna 182T w. G-1000 pirep by C J Campbell
OK, I know I said I would not get to fly this plane until tomorrow, but it arrived early and so I took a flight. This is a new turbocharged Cessna T182T. For those that have not seen the 182T (either turbo or normal, introduced last year), you might be a little startled the first time you take a...

No SID in clearance, fly it anyway? by Roy Smith
Had a strange thing happen to me today. I filed IFR HPN - HFD (White Plains NY to Hartford CT). The route part of my clearance came back "radar vectors Carmel, V1, Hartford, Direct". Usually out of HPN I would expect to get the Westchester-1 departure, but it wasn't in my clearance, and I when...

Can I log SIC under 135 IFR? by [email protected]
In an interview I had recently, I was told the nearly 300 hours I'd logged as SIC in a C208B for a Scheduled 135 EAS provider was not able to be counted in my logbook for Total Flight Time calculations. I had received a 135.293; 135.297 and 135.299 check ride and have said endorsements on my...

IFR use of handheld GPS by [email protected]
I've seen other discussions get off topic and go on about handheld GPS use under IFR. And people get all worked up about it. I know there is a lot of history on this newsgroup, but I haven't followed most of it (so don't lynch me, please). It seems that a lot of pilots believe a handheld GPS...
