Tutorial: VFR Sectional Charts: Part 1 - Airports

Recommended Posts

  • Founder




VFR Sectional Series: Airports is the start of a series covering the basics of VFR Sectionals. Using a real sectional, types of airports, towered and non-towered, and information blocks around airports will be decoded and explained with a shallow dive into the Chart Supplement to uncover more information about an airport than what is shown on a sectional. If you are a student pilot, private pilot, or serious flight simulator user, this video will help cover the basics of a VFR sectional chart.

Preparing for a Private Pilot checkride? I highly suggest the ASA Private Pilot Oral Exam Guide. Here is a link to the newest version on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3pVr9tE

I guess my ears are faulty, but I thought I heard Common Tower Advisory Frequency, but I just went back and listened again, and you did say Traffic. Apologies for my hearing problem. I thought that was a strange mistake, but it's my mistake both times when I listened at first, not yours. I've noticed recently that I occasionally mis-hear things now, so perhaps it's old age- same happens with hearing aids, so it's not the ears themselves.


Again, sorry I heard wrong...
