Who's Boss? by Wyatt Emmerich[_2_]
I'm flying into my home base KHKS at night in a single engine airplane. At no point have I been outside of glide range to an airport. I am VFR shooting a practice full approach in Class C airspace going into a Class D airport. The controller wants me to descend to 2,000 feet five miles before...

When to descend by Dan Luke[_2_]
You are coming from northeast of SFB. ATC says "Cleared direct UDUZI, maintain 4000' until established, cleared RNAV 9L approach." http://www.naco.faa.gov/d-tpp/0710/00917R9L.PDF When do you descend below 4,000 and to what altitude? -- Dan

Why publish a plate for an OTS approach? by Paul Tomblin
I'm just reading IFR Refresher, and it has a report on an accident that happened after a King Air was cleared for an SDF approach at KSME. According to the article, at the time the A/FD and NTAP listed the SDF as "Out of Service (OTS) - Indefinitely", and had been for four years, but the plate was...

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...

Time to medical help by Hilton
Hi, I have a question from a friend. Her daughters have nut allergies. She wants to know how long it takes from cruise (41K?) to a gate from the time they notify the crew of a medical emergency (e.g. anaphylactic shock). Obviously it depends on their proximity to a suitable airport, but I'd...

Fixes provided in routing for IFR flight plans - VFR waypoints okay? by Mxsmanic
I can't find any guidelines on the type of fixes or waypoints to be included in the routing description of an IFR flight plan. I presume you can use things like VORs and (?) airports, as well as airways and anything indicated on IFR charts or procedures. But can you also use VPxxx waypoints or...

Garmin 396 Weather avoidance.. by Dan
For those of you with a Garmin 396, how do you avoid dangerous weather, avoid yellow and steer clear of the lightning strike indications? I am considering the purchase of one and am wondering how to use the info safely, but yet with the maximum utility. Dan

GPS Question by rps
I thought I understood this, but maybe not. GPS systems were certified for approaches after I got my instrument ticket, so my knowledge is more anecdotal than from actual training. Can an approach-certified GPS be used to substitute for NDB and DME during an approach (or even en route)? What if...

Night over water by Stuart King
I left MYR (Myrtle Beach, SC) last night about 8PM, departing on rwy 18. A VFR aircraft departed just before me, and he got departure instructions of turn north on course as soon as able (over the land). I was continued 180 after takeoff on an IFR flight plan. I was about 1/2mile out over the...

Safety pilot in and out of IMC by Paul Tomblin
I want to go fly some approaches (and a hold) on Sunday. I know from experience that it's likely that the ceilings will be too high to do any meaningful approaches in IMC, but high enough that I might be in IMC during the vectors to the approach or at the hold. I figured I could take along a...

Pop-up IFR from Clearance Delivery by Andrew Sarangan
Can Clearance Delivery (through an RCO on the ground) give a pop-up IFR instead of Approach? So far I have found that they ask me to call Approach when airborne, or file with FSS. Is there an operational consideration that prevents CD from giving a pop-up?

Safety pilot - logging cross-country by S Herman
For IFR practice, in the situation where both pilots are logging PIC, one as sole manipulator, the other as acting PIC, can both pilots log cross-country (assuming the flight meets the length requirements) for the purpose of meeting the requirements for the Instrument Rating?

wonders of VFR on top by Robert M. Gary
The other day I wanted to get a clearance to get above an overcast while in cruise. When I asked for a clearance the controller said it would be awhile because my destination was more than 500 miles away. He said he needed to get me a clearance all the way there even though my intention was to...

Visual STARs by Mxsmanic
If a STAR is marked VISUAL (FUBAR VISUAL APPROACH), and shows hand-drawn paths and landmarks instead of navaids, does that mean it's intended specifically for VFR, or for both VFR and IFR, or what? I'm a bit confused by it because I thought all STARs were instrument approaches. At the same time,...

LPV vs LNAV/VNAV? by Paul kgyy
Can someone explain to me the difference between these two approach types, and how they relate to WAAS? A sample approach that has both is KARR RNAV(GPS) RWY 9. LPV DA is 956, LNAV/VNAV DA is 990.

Legal or not? by Jim Macklin

Cleared for an approach, then given a different altitude assignment by Peter R.
Today I was practicing a GPS approach and had been cleared for the approach with the normal, "Cessna XXX, cross ELESE at 3,000, cleared GPS 15 approach." A minute or so later the controllers switched positions and another one took over that slice of airspace. The new one came on frequency and...

GPS Altitude with WAAS by Phil Verghese
I posted earlier about seeing differences of up to 500' between the altitude shown on my Garmin GPS 196 (even while receiving WAAS) and my altimeter. The GPS would consistently indicate higher than the altimeter. Dan Luke suggested the cause might be non-standard temperatures. After some more...

More KAP 140 questions by News
I have another KAP 140 question for the group. Is there a way to have a dual axis w/ pre-select model of the KAP140 act as though it is only a single axis? Sometimes I want to engage the AP in heading mode but take care of pitch myself. Engaging the AP in heading mode makes the AP automatically...
