During this lesson, the student will conduct a complete IFR flight
from the base airport to an airport greater than 25 n.m. away, fly a
non-precision GPS approach (substitute VOR if GPS is INOP or
unavailable), go missed, hold, and return to the base airport, flying
a GPS approach to a full stop.
- IFR planning
- weather briefing
- unusual attitudes
- non-precision GPS approaches (if aircraft equipped)
- obtain clearance
- set up avionics and plates for an approach back to BED
- depart BED for ORH
- request a GPS approach (typically RNAV 29)
- go missed and hold
- request vectors back to BED
- fly a GPS approach at BED (typically RNAV 29 or 23); may be easier to get an approach to 23 when airport is busy

The student should demonstrate proper recovery techniques from
unusual attitudes. With only occasional instructor coaching, the
student will fly non-precision approaches without consistently
exceeding a +/- 100' altitude tolerance. The student will be able to
do 80 percent of the radio work without assistance
