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.




Completion Standards

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
