Re: Learning to fly the Connie

FlapMan, first I want to deal with the same flight plan I do have Take-off from LTBQ. I know is a bit longer time. I just did another flight. After turning back to BKZ I was at 4,000ft heading to 233. I began the approach, switched VOR2 to VOR1 and immediately descending up to 1,425 ft following the...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

FlapMan, This is getting better lessons than Rod Machado, not kidding.
I will redo the flight, it seems to me more clear now. I will see what I get about the 90 degrees differences you are mentioning about in order to do the correct turn direction.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Look's like a decent attempt. ===> Not close enough. You did a good job finding BKZ the first time. Were you at 4,000 here? ===> I was at 5,000 over BKZ beacon and turned to heading 052 for one minute. Then, turned to the left and started descending so at BKZ back again I was at 4,000 and lost. You...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

OK, just flew FlapMan new flight plan and not a success. I think my next flight I will try differently.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

FlapMan, I just did copy\paste your flight plan. That's a long description task I have to print it out and to study in order to follow this I call Lesson1.
I will report it. I may have to replace engines (lol).

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

You had error of 500ft on this goal. 50% ===> Do you mean I should be at 1500 ft right? Pat, I want to try something different. In 2006 my mentor wrote: However, when learning to fly the propliners it is easy to fall into the trap of sticking with what is familiar....The approach with the lowest mi...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Hi Pat, hope all is well! It is the same pilot error you make in EHAM ILS 36R. You are much better now you follow localizer beam. You can find runway no problem now.. even with other errors. Isn't that nice? Remember when you could not do this? What progress you make! Hi Flapman. Happy New Year 202...

Why did you plan to fly from DVR to LCY?
Did you look at the charts for EGLC?
Should I remove DVR from the plan? I added DVR to get DME. The Chart shows ILS DME zero at rwy27 so LOC not to be used. I think I should land on rwy09 after DVOR LON beacon.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

I flew a new plan:

EBOS rwy29
DVR 114.95/[email protected]
LCY 322KHz/[email protected]
EGLC ILS rwy27 - 115.15 - 276

DRMI LF1 was fine while the LOC needle was doing nothing so no ILS for landing. I had to land by hand.
What can be my faulty procedure? Video is not uploaded here unless if wanted.

4000 ft is your minimum height. DME 5.8 is your distance from the runway.
Why is this confusing?
Never mind ..... but here is the video talking itself for analysis.

Where are you getting 4.5 from?
If I fly from TFN beacons out bound 293 degrees and descending from 4500 ft to 4000 ft and then turning left to intercept ILS, how am I going to be at DME 5.8 if I am already at 4.0?
See now? you got confused on this (lol).

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Pat, when you do instrument flights, the 10 nm radius around the airports (or sometimes larger) are controlled by departure and arrival charts. You dont just make up your own version of an arrival. Look at the ILS Z or LOC RWY 12 chart. It says to fly from TFN out bound 293 deg to DME 16 TFN, desce...

I am in trouble with Connie flight plan GCFV-GCXO from which I am intended to land ILS in runway 12. Here is the plan and picture showing my intention to do Circle (follow red funny line showing the planned arc).

Am I wrong?
Just another lesson Rod teaches :D ...when you get there.
And I don't mean his words, but it's also in the text too.
Rod Machado can wait for me. What is the secret to a good flare?
