Anyone have a reference for a requirement to identify an ils or vor prior to it's use in the USA? Secondly, is there any reference to the type of identification required? For example, would checking that the primary flight display is displaying the correct identifier suffice? Or is there...

XM Weather - Sirius merger with XM Radio by Roy N5804F
Sirius is making headway in merging with XM Radio. No one seemed to be asking at the Anti Trust hearing whether or not Sirius will continue to maintain the XM aviation weather services. Or if they do, at what cost to the users ? I would imagine that this will be another User Fee that is going to...

MS Flight Sim by Dennis Johnson
Greetings, I think those who are arguing that flying MS Flight Sim isn't really "flying" are on the losing side of the argument. Flying is flying, I don't care if it's a Cub without an electrical system or a computer running MS Flight Sim. As far as general procedures go, MS Flight Sim gives...

New IFR Currency requirements...! by Dan[_1_]

Some Aviation News :) by [email protected]
Cathay boss: "Young pilots don't think about pensions or medical care, just want 777" For the first time since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, all major U.S. airlines are hiring pilots or recalling those laid off during the industry's five-year downturn. But the airlines are discovering that many of...

GPS approach in VFR wx at uncontrolled field by BobKK47
Is there any reason, or regulation, that states that a pilot, flying VFR, is prohibited in flying a GPS approach to an uncontrolled field (assuming VFR conditions at the field), or must the pilot fly the usual pattern to land? Thanks. Bob

squawk code 2000 by Gordy
I just got back to the snow in upstate New York from Maui. We flew United Airlines both ways. It was fun listening in on channel 9. I was surprised to hear all the flights getting the same squawk code. Each flights was instructed to squawk 2000 over the Pacific Ocean. Are all flights between...

How to be safely stupid by scott moore
Interesting call today. I talked to S-TEC/Meggit. I am doing my annual and wanted to cure a longstanding issue with my S-TEC 30 autopilot. The issue was that when dimming the unit down, when you turn the potentiometer below a certain value, the light on the S-tec 30 goes to full bright. The S-tec...

What do you do in the real world? by Ron Garret
Last night I flew from SJC to VNY. To my astonishment I was cleared vectors to SNS, then direct VNY (despite having filed a more standard routing) at 9000 feet. I knew perfectly well that the routing was going to change because I've done that route a zillion times, and indeed, near...

off airway MEA's by akiley
I'm wondering if there is a way to determine the minimum altitude required for uninterrupted communication with ATC off airways? Do you look at the closest airway and sort of interpolate the MEA? Do the center and approach controllers have maps with these altitudes? I'm assuming an MVA doesn't...

LPV Coming to Town by Marco Leon
Damn. I thought I'd be good for a couple of years on not spending the $1,700+ on the Garmin 430 WAAS upgrade. Now the airport mgmt at my homebase (KFRG) says that we're on the fast-track to get not one but two LPV approaches with one being to a runway with no current approaches. Should be...

Downers Grove, Il - suggestions? by Jim Carter[_1_]
I need to go to Downers Grove the week and am considering taking a 182RG from the local FBO here in Bentonville. I thought Schaumburg Regional might be close, but it shows OTS indefinitely on the web site I use. Next choice might appear to be Dupage. Anyone from around their with some suggestions?...
