- localizer back course approaches
- pitot instrument failure
- static instrument failures
- obtain clearance
- set up avionics and plates for an approach back to BED
- depart BED for SFZ
- cover the airspeed indicator and ask for some airspeed
changes (use ground speed readout on GPS, if available, as periodic check without
- cover the altimeter and VSI and ask the student to hold
altitude; demonstrate the availability of true altitude from the
- remind the student that true altitude (GPS) will be lower than indicated altitude (altimeter) when temperature lower than standard
- fly a GPS 23 at SFZ
- fly the VOR/DME 34 at PVD
- fly the LOC BC at EWB
- land at EWB to file again if going IFR
