Solo Time July 4th was my first solo. I flew at Oxnard Airport. All three landings were awesome, and increased my confidence more than i could ever explain.
Courtesy of Andrew Ayers. Today we'll be talking about the most common non-precision approach, the VOR approach. A lot of VORs are located at the airport, but there are many which are located away from the airport.
Approach procedures can be based on either. So, now that we know Vor lesson plan VOR approaches are, let's brief our chart and then go flying Since we've already gone over chart symbology, I'll just touch lightly on most of these things.
Because the approach is categorized with a runway number 11Rwe know that the final approach segment of this approach will bring us to within 30 degrees of the extended centerline of 11R.
This is where we will start the approach. Again, ATC will usually want to expedite your return for another approach with radar vectors, so you won't be flying a published missed very often. If you look to the right of "E", you'll see the "Circle-to-Land" minimums.
These are for use when the winds are favoring a different runway. If, for example, runway 4 was in use, we would only descend to ft MSL and then circle to land on runway 4 once it was in sight. OK, now that we've briefed our plate, let's do this Today's weather is ceiling ft overcast, visibility 2 miles.
We'll be doing the full procedure, starting at VRB. We're level at ft and proceeding to the VOR. We're now actually on the approach, proceeding outbound.
In the profile view, we see that we can also descend to ft until the completion of the procedure turn. So, we'll start a descent to ft 1. On the procedure outbound the VOR. This is poisition "1" marked on the chart above and the map-view below.
Now, ATC didn't give us any limitations on our procedure turn. In the profile view at "C", we see it says "10 NM". Where in that 10 NM radius it doesn't say, so we can start it right after we pass over the VOR if we like or we can extend it out if we were descending from a higher altitude.
Now, procedure turns are a bit tricky for some, so follow closely. The purpose of this is to turn us around, heading back to the VOR and the airport, without getting us totally off course. You can see at "C" that the first turn is to a heading of degrees. We want to fly the procedure turn outbound for 1 minute.
When 1 minute is up on our timer, we'll start a degree turn to a heading of degrees and then fly inbound 2. MAKE SURE to make standard rate turns wings set on the turn index line on the turn coordinator or else the procedure turn won't work out.
At this point, we're inbound on the procedure turn, so it's time to call the tower and report where we are.
The tower will then say "F roger, report the VOR". Level atrolling out on a heading. As we near our course, the needle will start to center and we'll start a turn to intercept our course.
Once we pass over the VOR 3things get busy. It's the FAF, so let's drop the gear.PROFESSIONAL CFI LESSON PLANS. Don't Waste Hundreds of Hours Creating Lesson Plans! Each lesson plan has been designed to be used as a stand alone reference.
