Sold out by IFR by Mike Rapoport
I used to subscribe to IFR until I realized that they offered a much better rate to new subscribers than to existing ones. After realizing this, my four year old decided to subscribe :-). Today he recieved a solicitation from another aviation magazine. Obviously they sold his (and my) name...

Silly controller by Robert M. Gary
The other day I was doing a VFR practice approach into Tracy, CA when the controller told me "reporting canceling IFR this freq, or on ground via land line...". I told him "uh, ok canceling IFR, I didn't believe I was IFR" (because I hadn't asked for or received an IFR clearance). The controller...

VOR approach SMO by Robert M. Gary
The other day I shot the VOR approach into SMO for the first time in low actual. I've often looked at that approach as one of the most difficult I've seen published so it was interesting to actually try it. The weather was 008OVC with something like 3sm HZ. I touched down about 3/4 down the runway...

Capt. Al Haynes sorta OT. by James Blakely
I know everyone hear remember Capt. Haynes. Capt. Haynes was the pilot of United flight 232 when the center engine suffered an uncontained failure and the DC-10 lost all of its hydraulic systems. Capt. Haynes landed the ship at Sioux City using differential power. His handling of the...

Lost comms after radar vector by Mike Ciholas
I had a "discussion" with my instructor about lost comms in IMC after a radar vector. To illustrate, consider this scenario (gratuitously enhanced with specifics): Depart BJC (Boulder, CO) for a flight to EVV (Evansville, IN). You expect the flight to take 4:30. You depart at 1200Z. Once...

Instrument departure, non-IFR airport by [email protected]
Recently I tried to depart from an non-tower airport that has no instrument approach procedure, and hence no instrument departure. I was told that I could not get a clearance on the ground, even with VIFNO etc., and that I would have to depart VFR and pick my clearance up while airborne. The...

ILS critical area when the tower is closed? by Mark Hansen
In this month's AOPA Flight Training magazine, I read an article which implied there was still some requirement to remain clear of the ILS critical area even when the tower was closed. I've been looking through the AIM, and can't find anything like this. It does say that when the tower is open, it...

Diamond DA-40 with G-1000 pirep by C J Campbell
I got a demo flight in a Diamond DA-40 equipped with the Garmin G-1000 glass cockpit this morning. We departed IFR from Tacoma Narrows and flew west for some maneuvers. This plane was the second one out of the factory with the G-1000. I had a difficult time maintaining my altitude; the altitude...

who uses FSS? by McGregor
I get my pre-flight briefings from: *) weathertap - RadarLab, area outlook, tafs, progs *) ADDS - flightpath tool for AIRMETS & winds aloft along the route *) FlightStar - to tell me how long it'll take, print nice-looking flight plans, plan fuel stops, etc. Then I call flight service and listen...

Contact approach question by Paul Tomblin
On the most recent Pilots Audio Update, the narrator was talking about a time when fog covered half the airport, but he could see the runway he was going to land on, but because the control tower was on the foggy half of the airport, they wouldn't approve a visual approach. He was being vectored...

Realistic Instrument Training using MSFS 2004 by [email protected]
Hi All, I'm a longtime lurker here, but now I have a question I hope the group can help me with. I am working toward my instrument rating (21 hours so far), and want to use MSFS to practice (cheaply). I do fine with holding a heading, but I find it very difficult to maintain an altitude. The...

1 Attachment(s) Nasa Icing courses by Jim Burns
As many of you probably know, recent midwest weather has been a steady stream of low overcast, misty, and foggy days prohibiting most VFR flight and making IFR flights a spin of the icing roulette wheel. I thought it may be a good opportunity for us to review NASA's icing online...

Accuracy of GPS in Garmin 430/530 by Will
Is there any way to have the Garmin 430/530 put its current display accuracy on the primary display as an ongoing statistic, based on the number of satellites in view? How, in general, do the Garmin units notify you of situations where GPS accuracy has been compromised to a level that makes...

Logging approaches by Ron Garrison
I had a 'first' last week, and I am looking for other peoples thoughts on this one. It was my first (I believe) loggable instrument approach in what was legally VMC. I was flying from the San Francisco bay area down to Burbank. The reported conditions were sky clear, visibility 4 miles in...

will this fly? by Lee Elson
Please excuse the cross post, but the topic might be of interest to several groups. I'm wondering whether providing light aircraft transportation services (people and/or cargo) and consulting to small businesses is likely to be a successful approach to setting up a very small aviation business. In...

Is an IPC a substitute for 6 approaches? by Ben Jackson
The way I read 61.57(d) (the requirement for an IPC), it's just an extra requirement that kicks in under certain circumstances. It's not a subpart of 61.57(c) (6 approaches etc in 6 months), and (c) does not have any exceptions related to (d). So if an IPC is essentially a checkride, it could be...

GPS approaches with Center by Dan Luke
How many here have flown GPS approaches with Center as the approach control? I'd be interested to hear your experiences. I needed to fly one yesterday to get into Greenville, AL and the ZTL controller sounded really befuddled about quite how to handle it. Because of another recent experience, I...
