Question about the Airbus planes by [email protected]

ATC Radar Question by Jackie
I understand that ATC radar uses an encoding altimeter and a transponder operating with Mode C to determine an aircraft's altitude. Let's forget about Mode C for a moment and switch to Mode A only or just a primary return. If an aircraft is at 18,000 ft (approx 3 nm) and 3 nm away from the...

WINGS program... by Sylvain
Just a little heads up: if like me, you rely on the WINGS program to satisfy the proficiency requirements of 14 CFR 61.56, then you might be in trouble and you most definitely want to look into it before your next flight: The old program has, I am told, been 'sunset' on December 2007. In...
