STAR to nearby airport by Viperdoc
Recently while returning from a trip I was heading to my home base, which is a class D airport. I was handed off to the local tracon, which has a class C airport, and was issued a clearance to follow a star that led to a navaid near my destination. However, the star was for the class C airport, not...

Instrument Checkride on May 17th by David B. Cole
On Saturday my instructor and I flew to Stewart International in Newburg, NY for a few approaches. The plan was to fly out and do the VOR -27 partial panel a couple of times, followed by an ILS. After that we planned to fly to 4N1, Greenwood Lake, before returning to CDW. Partial panel holding had...

landings (off topic) by Lee Elson
Sorry for the off topic question, but I suspect there are quite a few of you that could help me: I'm looking for good techniques for teaching student pilots how to handle the final phase of landing. In particular how to get students to recognize when the airplane (a Cessna 152 or 172) is sinking...

ADF Problem by tony roberts
Hi Today I was flying north and my ADF was tuned to an NDB. The needle pointed at 330 degrees (or 11 O'clock) until I reached the NDB, and then it swung until it pointed behind. I dialed up the next NDB and it pointed at 330 again until passage. And I dialed up another NDB - same indication - all...

What's the point of this? by Paul Tomblin
I was looking at Phoenix AZ on the low altitude en-route chart, and there is a cluster of GPS waypoints charted all around the VOR (in the Class B). I assume those are for GPS instrument approaches. Is there a reason why those are charted on the en-route? -- Paul Tomblin ...

What fixes do you use for flight planning? by Paul Tomblin
I'm trying to improve my database generators for CoPilot and other programs (see http://navaid.com/ and http://xcski.com/~ptomblin/CoPilot/ for details). The problem I'm trying to deal with is that the FAA is totally inconsistent on how they name waypoints, DAFIF isn't any better, and there are...

filing IFR plan for VFR flight conditions by Paul Safran
I seem to have read or been told once that, one can file an IFR flightplan with remark for VFR flight conditions when not instrument rated, or current, to get routing and practice within the system. Comments?

Mountain Flying Course? by Nicholas Kliewer
I live in Dallas, TX and don't get out of the flat lands much. This Fall, I am planning a trip to Oregon in a C172 and figure that I could use some mountain flying training. Can anyone recommend a good Mountain Flying Course? Preferably near Colorado Springs (I have family there). Any other tips...

1 Attachment(s) Right seat flying by Matt Whiting
This isn't an IFR related question, but I don't see an r.a group devoted to instruction. I just received the May/June issue of Aviator's Guide and they make an interesting claim on page 38. In the third paragraph they say that it is illegal for a non-instructor pilot to fly in the right seat with...

Altimeter inaccurate by smf
My Altimeter is accurate when on the ground or at lower alt. When I climb up to 7k and above and check it against GPS and approach controls read out it is about 300+ feet off. Is it the altimeter I'm having problems with? Steve

Jepp vs NOS at PRB by Doug Campbell
I was training with Jepp charts, and my partner (safety pilot) had NOS, and we were attempting the VOR DME (GPS) B approach into Paso Robles. The Jepp chart shows the procedure turn (when starting at the VOR, not the arc) starting at 6 DME from the VOR, while the NOS chart shows it starting...

Finding IAPs by TYPE? by [email protected]
Hello all... I was looking through the online instrument procedures, trying to find a VOR/DME RNAV approach to do the flight test portion of my KNS-80 IFR certification. They aren't that prevalent, and I'm in Virginia, but basically equally close to WV, KY, TN, and NC, which spans a number of sets...

What caused the VSI and ALT bouce in the IMC? by cpu
Yesterday I flew a cessna 172 in the hard IFR. When I penetrated apparently a heavy cumulonimbus rain cloud area, the VSI and altimeter started to oscillate and bounce +/- 250 FPM (ALT oscilated 200~300 ft up and back). The rate of bounces was about 3 to 4 Hz (3 to 4 times per second). It lasted...

transitioning from instruments to visual landing on final by Gerald Sylvester
I'm about 14 hours into my IFR training with 11 of those on the sim. I had to go to LAS for work (non-aviation) for 3 weeks. I came back and was dying to go flying. Well I expected the worst. I hadn't flown a plane in nearly 2 months since I was working on the IFR stuff. First time flying...
