Event Information
"Approach Plate Lunch"
Saturday, February 22, 2014 12:00 Pacific Standard Time

Located at:
San Carlos Flight Center
655 Skyway Rd
Suite 215
San Carlos, CA 94070

Instrument approach plates pack an extraordinary amount of information into a very small space. They contain all the information you need to approach an airport you can’t see, and procedures to safely land there – all on a 6” by 9” sheet of paper.

On Saturday, February 22nd, SCFC CFII Brian Eliot will analyze three separate approaches - SNS ILS 31, SNS VOR 13, LVK ILS 25R - and discuss what is unique or challenging about each, along with potential gotchas. These approaches are unique because they depend on NDB without being NDB approaches. They would be "ADF REQUIRED" and demand GPS in the absence of ADF, and would be prohibited as alternates for a GPS diversion from a destination airport.

Presenter Brian Eliot is San Carlos Flight Center’s resident expert for IFR training and Garmin G1000 avionics. He has been flying since 1995 and received all his training in the Bay Area. Brian previously worked as a broadcast engineer, a software developer, and taught computer science at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. He regularly presents at San Carlos Flight Center safety seminars and has a reputation for making complex concepts easy to learn and understand. 
Bring your bag lunch, stop at In-N-Out, or just listen and enjoy the discussion. We hope you can join us.
