Quiz: Flying IFR with ForeFlight
1 min read
Where can you find the GPS RAIM status for a planned IFR flight?
Where can you find the takeoff weather minimums for an airport?
Where can you find details on the approach lighting for an airport?
What does the Icing (US) layer depict on the Maps screen?
Where can you find suggested IFR alternate airports when planning a flight?
What’s a quick way to view the height of the current freezing level in the U.S.?
Where can you view IFR routes recently issued to other aircraft between two airports?
If ATC clears you to intercept a leg between two waypoints, how do you activate that leg from the Maps screen?
When viewing an approach chart in the Plates section of the app, how can you determine if there is a change to one of the minimum altitudes or visibility requirements?
After loading a full approach procedure on the Maps screen, ATC advises that you should now expect vectors to intercept the final approach course. How can you quickly update your flight plan from the Maps screen?
ForeFlight IFR You got out of 10 right!
Thanks! Nice quiz.
On a nit-pick note, the metric conversion to millimeters is incorrect below:
The severity levels are defined by how long it would take for ¼ inch (65mm) of ice to build up on an airfoil: light = 15 minutes to 1 hour, moderate = 5 – 15 minutes and heavy = less than 5 minutes.
1/4″ is equal to 6.35mm, not 65. 65mm is over 1 1/2″.
Good eye Fred! 1.5″ of ice doesn’t sound like much fun.
I’ve been an avid ForeFlight user since the application was first released. ForeFlight is so feature rich, it requires lots of practice to stay current and proficient; particularly with the features that are seldom used during typical flights.
6 out of 10 and I am not even a pilot LOL
People, 65mm is over TWO and a half inches, not 1 1/2.
From high school physics: 1″ = 2.54 cm. X 10 = 25.4 mm. 2″ = 2 x 25.4 = 50.8 mm. 65 mm = Too Much Ice!
