View Full Version : Looking for flight info
10-26-2001, 11:09 PM
Does anyone know where I might find some good guidelines on things like correctly reading and interpreting approach plates and airport diagrams. I can easily fly a standard ILS approach and have even gotten decent at visual approaches. I am looking for a website that offers more on reading approach diagrams, how to perform BC or VOR approaches, even the correct usage of ADF or NDB. Any help would be appreciated...and yes I have read the manual...doesn't really tell you much. Thanks

One site that I found really useful is http://www.navfltsm.addr.com/
It covers everything from Air Navigation, through NDB Navigation and Approaches, VOR Navigation and Approaches to ILS.
It also contains links to several other good sites.

You might try the Jeppesen web site. They have Adobe format articles on their brand of IAPs and also a pretty good section, telling you what the symbols on the charts stand for.
I would also try Rod Marchados book "The Instrument Pilots Survival Guide". He goes into great detail about the Jep charts. I use them in real life and perfer them a whole lot better than the NOS charts.

That one is not going to be so easy. I tried finding a couple of plates for Halifax and another airport nearby and didn't have much luck. You might have to spring for the Jep sim charts or get a book of the Canadian Terminal procedures charts...only they don't call them that up there.
