What radio calls are required under IFR in a radar environment?

1.     Time and altitude at each designated reporting point. When in radar contact, only those requested by ATC
2.     Any unforecast weather.
3.     Any information regarding safety of flight.
4.     Any malfunction of navigational, approach, or communication equipment.
5.     For holding, the time and altitude reaching and leaving the clearance limit.

6.     Read back altitudes, altitude restrictions, and vectors (headings).

What are the requirements to continue descent below the Decision Height or Minimum Descent Altitude?

The aircraft is in a position to make a normal descent to touchdown within the touchdown zone.
The flight visibility is not less than required by the approach.
At least one of the following visual references is distinctly visible and identifiable to the pilot.
The ALS except that the pilot may not descend below 100 feet above the TDZE using the approach lights as a reference unless the red terminating bars or the red side row bars are also distinctly visible and identifiable.
The threshold, threshold markings, or threshold lights.
The runway end identifier lights REIL
The visual approach slope indicator VASI
The touchdown zone, touchdown zone markings, or touchdown zone lights.

The runway, runway markings, or runway lights.

Which flight conditions create the most severe flight hazard by generating wingtip vortices of the greatest strength?

The greatest vortex strength occurs when the generating aircraft is HEAVY, CLEAN, and SLOW.

Where is the missed approach point?

For a nonprecision approach the missed approach point MAP is usually visually identified by a capitalized and bold M in the Jeppesen approach plates or at the end of the solid line of the profile view for NACO plates.
There are several ways to identify the missed approach point:
1.     Published DME at the MAP
2.     NAVAID such as a middle marker MM
3.     Timing from the FAF

As a backup to determine the distance from the FAF to the MAP always refer to the timing chart near the bottom of the approach plate. One of the three lines in the chart will always provide the nautical miles from the FAF to the MAP.
For a precision approach like the ILS the MAP is that point at which the aircraft reaches the DA (H).

What is the lowest visibility required for a category 1 ILS?

1,800 RVR

How far out from an airport can you accept clearance for a visual approach?

Any distance, (it used to be 35 NM from the airport, but it is removed now. Some airlines might have OPSSPECs of 35 NM.


But the pilot must at all times have either the airport or the preceding aircraft in sight.

What is the weather requirements to fly a visual approach at an airport?

1,000 foot ceiling and 3 statute miles visibility.
