But that was also true of private cross country training where, for example, you selected checkpoints every NM on a less-than-an-hour 52 NM flight with 5 hours of fuel on board!

Just the other day we did a practice cross country just 70 nm away. And if it is what can I expect on the check ride? It helps to maintain your familiarity with that type of navigation; it provides you with an confirmation of what the GPS box is telling you; and it serves as a backup in the case of a GPS problem. If your method is to use a navlog, so be it, but your flight plan may drop from the NAS, before you finish.

Mark Kolber on Sep 16, Just the other day we did a practice cross country just nnav nm away. With my ATCS hat on, we try to give the filed route to the fullest extent possible. Additionally, direct links to FAA and related official government sources of information are welcome. I did my plans using one victor airway and vor and a few points. This could be for traffic llg, weather, TFR, medevac, laser event, or zombie navv. That might not really work for me. Basically throw out my other nav log?


FAA Practical Test prep that reflects actual checkrides. This is all fine until we get to the plane and pick up our clearance and the clearance is something completely different then what I had planned on the ground.

Hello all, I have some doubts about planning an ifr flight.

The IFR Cross-Country

And both are certainly extremely important, especially when navigating with paper maps and charts. Mark Kolber on Sep 16, So your CFII having you go through the long process is valuable. No, you will not be doing that type of detailed planning of routes that you may never actually receive in the real world of IFR flight, That has always been true but it is, as John points out, especially true now when there are apps and websites that will tell you the clearances that have actually been recently given that greatly increase the chances of your plan being the same as the clearance you actually get.

Mark Kolber on Sep 13, Free Transition Service for users of other eLogs. In this day and age, I would use an electronic flight bag such as ForeFlight.

The World’s Most Trusted eLogbook. Usually you will get the expected route prior to departure sent to your iPad at which time there is an option to load the expected route into the route planner. I also like the idea of using and tuning VORs along the way. The associated moving map will give you enhanced situational awareness and, if ATC at some point gives you a shortcut Direct to a fix or waypoint, how easy that is if you already have it in your jav plan or can easily see how it fits in.


Answer Question Our sincere thanks to all who contribute constructively to this forum in answering idr training questions.

Warranty & Support

I wonder, how do you guys deal with this scenerio with your student? So I guess in ifr is to just be aware of how much time has gone by and how much distance you have left to go and make sure you have enough fuel.

On the contrary, it is extremely valuable training. Airplane, Helicopter, Glider, etc. However, there are many reasons why routes are changed.

The best explanations in the business. All those calculations you meticulously made with an E6B are automatic.

And, of course, the same thing John says about the use of technology applies to VFR planning. Sign in or Signup. Thank you guys for the response. Once I got my clearance I got cleared via radar vector. To use the VFR example, how else is a CFI to know that you understand fuel nnav and how to find your position on a chart when GPS fails without having multiple checkpoints?

Mark Kolber on Sep 13, This fir bit of a soapbox issue for me because it points out a common CFI failing that occurs in both private and instrument training.
