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...

Track, Bearing, Course, Heading by [email protected]
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.

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...

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...

Obstacle Clearance Altitude / Height by Tim
Hi, Could anyone give me a good explanation for OCA/OCH. I know it has something to do with the minimums of ILS-approaches and it should always be lower than or equal to the DA/DH. I assume it provides you with a certain obstacle clearance at DA/DH. But how is it determined???? Best regards,

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...

iPad + Foreflight Review by Dane Spearing[_3_]
A few months back, I bought an iPad with the intent of using it in flight for maps, approach plates, and as a supplemental nav. to my GNS 430. I finally got the opportunity to play with it today while doing some hood work to see how well it performs in-flight, and I must say, I am very...

Logging PIC time as student instrument pilot in IMC by Greg Esres
I recently realized that I should not have included any "actual" (IMC) time recorded in my logbook as PIC time while I was an instrument student. Why not? If you were actual, then it was PIC. how about adding a "corrective" (new) entry? That's what I do. Just make +/- entries to total...

New Clearance Delivery toll-free number by danlj
As many of us have experienced, the response of FSS briefers to phone calls has been sometimes ... um... desultory, and when we're at a remote airport with no radio link to Center, waits on the phone of 15-30 minutes for clearance have been common. Lockheed-Martin FSS has now segregated a group of...

Does an IPC count as a BFR? by Larry Jenkins
Okay, I've read the regulations and still can't figure out the answer to this question: If I received an IPC from a CFII one year after my last BFR, do I need to get another BFR in 12 months or 24 months from now?? Thanks in advance, Larry
