4 Attachment(s) Leaving the community by David Brooks
One thing - one of so very many things - I learned in my five years of flying is that partisan politics does not fit into the cockpit. Most of my flight instructors have, I know, been to the right of me politically. I had a most enjoyable flight with CJ - although he has since earned my...

Confusion about when it's my navigation, and when it's ATC by Mxsmanic
I fly from KLAX to KLAS, using the FMC to handle most of the flight. With the routing I put in, the FMC decides on some default altitudes and includes required altitudes for the arrival and departure procedures I select. Part of what it does is to create a descent schedule from the nominal cruise...

IFR use of handheld GPS by [email protected]
I've seen other discussions get off topic and go on about handheld GPS use under IFR. And people get all worked up about it. I know there is a lot of history on this newsgroup, but I haven't followed most of it (so don't lynch me, please). It seems that a lot of pilots believe a handheld GPS...

1 Attachment(s) IFR with a VFR GPS by Wizard of Draws
OK, I broke down and sprung for the Lowrance Airmap 2000c instead of the 1000. Wow. Normally I rent a plane that has a panel-mounted IFR certified Garmin 430, but that may change due to circumstances beyond my control in a few months. Obviously I can't file /G IFR without a proper IFR GPS, but...

No SID in clearance, fly it anyway? by Roy Smith
Had a strange thing happen to me today. I filed IFR HPN - HFD (White Plains NY to Hartford CT). The route part of my clearance came back "radar vectors Carmel, V1, Hartford, Direct". Usually out of HPN I would expect to get the Westchester-1 departure, but it wasn't in my clearance, and I when...

"Refusing to Handle You" by Mike Granby
So, an interesting thing happened today. I am at a fly-in at Hagerstown and about to head back to my home-base at York (THV). I can see from the PC they had there that there is a line of heavy rain and possibly thunderstorms blocking my route back. There is no way around it to the north, but there...

Phrase "landing runway" vs. "cleared to land" by Robert M. Gary
Today I was shooting approaches at MHR. Wx was 001OVC 1/8SM. When I got handed off to tower they would say "Mooney 1234, not in site, landing own risk, landing runway 22L". That doesn't sound like a landing clearance to me. What does "landing runway 22L" mean in the tower ATC phrase book? Why would...
