These questions are probably very easy, but being as i am somewhat of a beginner, i need some help. What is the differencce between a visual approach and an ILS approach when the ATC gives you one or the other. I got cleared for a visual in DCA and my glidescope/localizer was being followed. But since at sometimes because due to the cockpit being "tall" i couldnt see the runway until it was too late. What should i do??
Also, how do i know how much fuel to put on board?
