Downloading GPS track data and overlaying charts by John Galban

Minimum rate of climb or descent by Aaron Kahn
What type of checkride was it? I would have asked the inspector to identify the regulation that was infracted, or identify how the action compromised safety. It's true the controllers have expectations (as mentioned by Joe) but I don't think that in and of itself constitutes a bust. But, then...

Another question about simulators by James Blakely
I use Jeppensen's FlightPro to maintain my instrument scan because I just don't get enough real IMC time. The one thing I don't like about it is when you break out, there is no ground information at all. The ground is simply an all green field. The airport is nothing more than a black stripe...

TIS outage by Viperdoc
Does anyone know how to tell if the Traffic Information System uplinked by Mode S is in service or not? My Garmin 530/ GTX 330 says "traffic unavailable" and passes all of the diagnostics, but when I called ATC and flight service they said Mode S was operational. Is there any other way to get...

Aircraft Designaitons by David Townend
The second printing of "Military Aircraft Designations and Systems" is still available. We were out of print soon after our October 2002 printing so it is good to have copies available again. We are also able to hold the original price, too. Military Aircraft designations catalogued from 1913 to...

Logging instrument approaches by Slav Inger
It's been awhile since I flew VFR, and having taken a cursory look through Part 61 I didn't see anything to the contrary, so I'm going to throw this out and see what you guys think. It's my understanding that I can take a VFR-only airplane on a local VFR trip with a PP-rated safety pilot on board,...

Lost comm - Arrival by Michael 182
I know I should know this, but I just can't remember. If I lose comm on an assigned arrival do I step down to the altitudes on the arrival segments? If it visual can I "assign myself" the visual approach? Thanks, Michael

IFR Simulators - non-PCATD by Maule Driver
I'm getting ready to buy a new PC and want to set it up for a little IFR simulation work. Not looking for a PCATD or anything. I'm thinking the latest version of MS Flt Sim and the appropriate control peripherals. I'm not a gamer - really just looking for a little procedure training. Looking...

IFR On Top by Newps
You mean VFR on Top. The main advantage is you get to pick your altitude and go much lower against headwinds. Since there is no separation provided by ATC there is a lot more route flexibility. Lloyd I. Cripe wrote: A pilot friend with a relatively new IFR rating asked me the following ...

You are in IMC, when *everything* fails! Now what? by Thomas Pappano
Hello All, There has been much discussion here about the obvious benefits of redundant systems, engines, vacuum, electrical etc., when flying in IMC. We've also read NTSB reports of crashes of very well equipped planes where the pilot did not make use of redundant instruments. As for myself and...

IR checkride story! by Guy Elden Jr.
Ok, time for me to fill y'all in on today's adventure... my IR checkride! First, let me thank all of those (in rec.aviation.student at least!) who have posted their PPL checkride stories. I've read a few over the past week or so, and they helped calm me down quite a bit in preparation for today....

Controller Forum by Greg Esres
NATCA (National Air Traffic Controllers Association) runs a web-based forum where you can ask questions of controllers. Seems like a great resource, but it's presently highly underutilitzed. http://bbs.natca.net I'm sure pilots and controllers would benefit if the site became more highly...
