During this lesson, the student continues to develop attitude
instrument flying skill. The student will receive initial
instruction regarding the use of the VOR and how to determine station
orientation and radial intercept and tracking.
- Straight and level flight
- Constant rate climb
- Constant airspeed climbs
- Constant rate descents
- Constant airspeed descents
- Recovery from unusual flight attitude
- Change of airspeed
- VOR accuracy test
- VOR radial interception and tracking
- interpretation of VOR to/from flag
- VOR station passage observation
- DME and/or substituting GPS for DME
- depart BED on a NW heading
- tune and identify the Gardner VOR
- determine what radial FROM the Gardner VOR
- turn towards the Gardner VOR and track the VOR radial inbound for 3 miles
- tune and identify the LWM VOR
- determine what radial FROM LWM VOR and how to report position to ATC
- fly towards LWM tracking the radial inbound
- intercept the 270 radial FROM LWM
- track the 270 radial inbound to LWM
- track the 223 radial outbound for 18 n.m. from LWM back to BED, using DME or GPS information to determine proximity to BED (note that the radial off LWM and DME is in the A/FD)

- FAA Instrument Flying Handbook
- Robinson R22/R44 IFR Trainer
- R22/R44 P.O.H.
The student should demonstrate proper recovery techniques from
unusual attitudes, with full and partial panel. The student will
also gain an understanding of VOR orientation and tracking procedures,
including the interception of specific VOR radials.
