Speaker(s):
Herb Patten
Brief Description:

You probably have a general understanding of IFR charts including Victor airways and MEAs, but when was the last time you really looked closely at all the information available on a chart. Do you recall how to decipher MRAs? How about the different type of fixes found along an airway? We will take a close look at some hidden gems of details on the IFR enroute charts.

SCFC Ground Instructor Herb Patten will  present a safety seminar that will help to end the confusion.  He will demystify the numbers and markings on the FAA’s IFR Low Enroute Charts and help pilots develop a better understanding of the details on these charts.   Herb will explain waypoint and navigational aid symbology, and describe the various altitudes shown on the charts.  This is a valuable safety seminar for new IFR Students and a great refresher for pilots that are already instrument rated.

Herb Patten is an FAA certificated advanced and instrument ground instructor who teaches private pilot ground school at San Carlos Flight Center. He holds a private pilot certificate with an instrument rating, has over 800 hours and flown into 111 different California airports. He is co-founder of the Bay Area Student and New Pilot Support Group, and a board member of the Upwind Foundation, famous for its Upwind Summer Scholarship Program. In 2015, Herb was named a Master Instructor by the National Association of Flight Instructors.
