IFR » IFR Flight Navigation » Flight Plan Preparation
IFR Flight Planning is the same as CPL Flight Planning only this time the legs with Tracks (in °M) and Distance are given on the enroute charts.
Descent – ½ way down descent.
Example IR Nav Exam Paper
- Twin turbo-prop engines
- Approach classification Category B.
- Navigation Aids
- Dual VOR/ADF with RMI/CDI presentation
Flight Plan Details
- HK NDB - NS VOR - NP VOR - AA VOR - UKAPA - KT NDB
- Use the Approach chart for KT NDB/DME RWY 12
- ETD HK 0115 UTC
Set heading from the HK NDB at 4000 ft and climb direct on track to FL190.
- CAS 140 kts
- Mean Rate of climb 1500 fpm
- Fuel flow 1680 lb/hr
- CAS 175 kt
- Fuel flow 1450 lb/hr
Descent to Kaitaia is to be planned so as to arrive overhead the KT NDB at the minimum initial approach altitude for the NDB approach.
- CAS 200 kts
- Rate of descent 1500 fpm
- Fuel flow 1100 lb/hr
- Overshoot from MDA, then carry out a departure procedure to set heading overhead the KT NDB at 3000 ft.
- Proceed to AA VOR via UKAPA at 10,000 ft.
- Altitude overhead AA VOR is to be planned at the minimum initial approach altitude for the ILS approach.
- For planning purposes performance figures for the Climb, Cruise and Descent are to be used for the Diversion calculation.
- Use the Approach chart for AUCKLAND ILS/DME or LLZ/DME RWY 23L.
