Pro Member Chief Captain

I have to go IFR. The visibility is 1/4 mile. Check out Deadhorses's ATIS on 118.4. May the best man win! Very Happy

Pro Member Chief Captain
Matthew Shope (mypilot) Chief Captain

You know how to fly IFR, right?

Pro Member First Officer
mrkonk First Officer

Yea but I am on The ground ware are you

Pro Member Chief Captain
Matthew Shope (mypilot) Chief Captain

Congradualtions! I'm flying the ILS runway 4 right now. See ya on the ground.

Pro Member Chief Captain
Matthew Shope (mypilot) Chief Captain

OK. I'm down. How did you do that approach so quickly? ATC had me fly the ILS 4 appr. and then circle to land. That was quite tricky.

Guest FEM Guest

He probably filed a IFR flightplan, that'd what I'd do. Because pilots with the IFR flightplans have priority usually.

Hey, what say we do another, I'm in for it over the weekend if ya wanna do it. How about a race from like the south island of Hawaii to the northernmost island? Or something weird like that? If rules will allow, can we use the Skylane instead of the Skyhawk? I'm not sure what you used, but I think skylane allows more fun and strategy because it has prop RPM as well, which allows for fuel economy and stuff too.
