ORCA lower than MEA? by Dan
There are some places on IFR enroute charts where the OROCA (Off-route obstruction clearance altitude) is actually lower than MEAs on an airway in the same quadrant. The higher MEA is NOT due to obstacles in adjacent quadrants. If I'm on the airway, usually they don't let folks go down to the...

contact terminology? by paul kgyy
ATC: airplane 67Z, "traffic westbound at your 2 o'clock, 5000 feet" Now, if I see the traffic, it's "airplane 67Z has the traffic" What if I don't have it visually, but it shows up on my traffic display? I've heard stuff like "yep, got 'im on the fishfinder" but I'm wondering if there is a...

Instrument Student Pilot Filing IFR by Roy N5804F
Is it legal for a non-instrument rated pilot to file IFR in his own name in order to undergo instrument training while accompanied by his CFII ? In other words. Who should file IFR for a training instrument flight ? The student or the CFII ? Thanks for input -- Roy

I got my IFR rating 7 months ago. I use the KAP140 autopilot a lot. From climb-out to MDA/DA. I find it really helps in my management of the plane and the IFR flight. I am interested in comments regarding the pros and cons of a heavy use/reliance on the autopilot.

Intercepting the ILS by [email protected]
Hello, Yesterday I was out getting an IPC. We were doing the Stockton, CA ILS. ATC had us intercepting the localizer at 2000 feet. The altitude for glideslope interception is 1800 ( underlined ). My old CFII taught me that the glideslope interception altitude on the chart is a minimum...

Unclear Clearance by Mitty
OK, just to distract you guys from "IFR with a VFR GPS" --- Flying into Grand Marais MN last week (KCKC) I was out maybe 30 miles at 7000 and got "Cleared for the approach, maintain 4000 until established. Contact advisory ... " The reason for the early clearance was, I think, that I was at the...

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?

Class B bust my fault or the controllers ? by Antoņio
Today I flew into KBFI (Boeing field) which is class D and has extentions that underlie the Class B that require close attention to altitudes and headings so as to stay clear. Today the winds were favoring 31L (and 31R) and I came in from the west on the Vashon approach--the most common approach...

Why Not Use PC To Make Glass Cockpit? by Le Chaud Lapin
Standard disclaimer applies: I still have my copy of Flight Training next to the porcelain throne. Ahem. However, as I flip the pages of this magazine, I cannot help but think that companies like Garmin are getting off a bit easy. Being a software developer, I am very suprised to discover that...

Autopilot use during approach by Ron Gordon
I've moved up to a new plane that includes an S-Tec 50 autopilot. It has several very capable modes ranging from Wings Leveler, Track a Heading bug, Follow NAV input, Hold a set Altitude, and approach mode which tracks NAV input more closely. What do the regs say about the permissible use of an...

Liberals Ignore The Wright Brothers by Andrew Gideon
Liberals HATE America wrote: Alas, Orville and Wilbur Wright are today pigeon-holed as "dead white males" whom we are supposed to ignore, if not deplore. The author is sadly misinformed. I couldn't care less about "white" or "male". However, "dead" is a Bad Thing. I certainly expend a...

Icing Airmets by Andrew Sarangan
I've been watching the icing airmets for some time now, and it seems to be getting more and more conservative to the point of being unrealistic. For example, right now the freezing level is at 5000 ft, MEA is at 2500 ft, yet we have an airmet Z that goes all way from SFC to 18k. How could you...

Why is a standard hold right turns? by Roy Smith
It has always struck me odd that a standard landing pattern is left turns and a standard hold is right turns. Having a left patterns for landing makes a bit of sense, since the pilot is on the left side of the cockpit and has a better view of the runway making left turns. But, for IFR holds,...

I was going to go from Indianapolis Executive (TYQ) to Capitol City in Lansing Michigan (LAN). The weather was 1000 OVR until 50 miles north of TYQ and then it...

Crossing a stepdown fix high by David Brooks
Is there any problem with controllers or examiners if I cross a stepdown fix several hundred feet above the depicted altitude? I believe that, legally, I can be at any altitude above the crossing minimum, but would this be a bust of the PTS +/-100 tolerance, or cause a problem for ATC? For...
