understand instrument approach
Approach Plates (Instrument Approach Procedures) are one
of the greatest tools used for Instrument Navigation as well as VFR Flying.
Without these vital diagrams, landings in poor weather would be near impossible.
Each drawing is full of essential information that, when pieced together
properly, provide all the necessary navigation to transition from air to ground.
This lesson is broken up into FOUR sections concentrating on the main areas
of the Approach Plate diagram. The diagram used is a basic VOR Approach that
describes most features of common approach plates.
It is a big
decision. You have wanted to fly for some time
and now you're going to do it. Excitement.
Anticipation. You go to the airport and they
take you out to the plane you are going to
fulfil your dream of learning to fly in andů The
plane is older than you are. It looks its age.
It smells its age. It shakes, rattles and rolls.
It squeaks. The plastic or Royalite is cracked
and sun faded. Well, you get the idea.
