Departure Question by VOR-DME
Thanks to all for previous helpful replies. Here's a departure question. (Those who do not fly real airplanes under IFR need not feel compelled to reply): I'm departing a non-towered field IFR, let's stay East Coast, and say Bennington (KDDH), departing eastbound. There is a published departure...

IFR checkride coming up... by Tom[_5_]
Hi guys. I've been doing my training, took the written yesterday and have my checkride in 2 weeks. Couple of questions. 1) The tolerance for MDAs on the test is +100/-0. The natural response to this is of course to target the altitude MDA+50ft, giving 50ft buffer in either direction. My question...

Currently available IFR simulation software by flying_monkey
Hello group, I got my Instrument Rating 35 years ago, and have never been legally current since 6 months after that date. It was the hardest rating I ever got, even harder than CFI for airplanes or gliders. Probably the difficulty and disuse result from the same source: I'm just a...
