NDB or GPS Rwy 33 EPM by Steven P. McNicoll
"Ron Rosenfeld" wrote in message ... This approach is marked radar required, and there is no charted feeder route to the IAF. So one approaches via a random route under radar. ATC will not issue an approach...

How to file XXX to XXX? by Nicholas Kliewer
If I just want to do IFR approaches at my class D airport of origin, how should I file? One FSS person suggested that I file McKinney (TKI) direct to a 5 mile on a 360 radial from the airport (which has no VOR) and then back to TKI -- putting "multiple approaches" in the comments section. Any...

Passed IRF Retest by Jon Kraus
A few weeks ago I posted about busting my IFR checkride. Well yesterday I finally got it finished up. Here is a recap of what transpired in both checkrides. First I'll reiterate that not only was I this DE's first IFR student, we also had the FAA examiner with us giving him a "checkride". The...

"Going for the Visual" by O. Sami Saydjari
A while back, I was with an experienced pilot, IMC, descending to land at my home airport. The airport is not in an environment where ATC will give vectors to final. As we approached, ATC asked which approach we wanted. He said that he was "going for the visual." The ceilings were right at the...

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...

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?

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
