Stuff I should Know

  1. What are holding speeds and altitudes?
    • MHA - 6000. 200
    • 6001 - 14000. 230
    • 14001 and above 265
  2. What are standard holding pattern leg length?
    • At or below 14,000. 1 min.
    • Above 14,000. 1.5 min
  3. Required report entering a hold?
    Time and alitude
  4. DA vs DH on an approach plate?
    DA is Desicion altitude in msl. The point you go missed with vertical navigation.

    DH is referenced to threshold elevation.

    DA is 1440. DH is 200. DA(H) 1440
  5. ILS categories
    • Cat I. Not less than 200ft HAT and 1800 RVR
    • Cat II. Not less than 100ft HAT and 1200 RVR
    • Cat IIIA. No DH and min 700 RVR
    • Cat IIIB. No DH and min 150 RVR
    • Cat IIIC. No DH and no RVR min
  6. What does LPV mean?
    Localizer performance with vertical gidance.
  7. What does MAA mean?
    • Maximum authorized altitude.
    • A published altitude representing the maximum usable altitude or flight level for airspace structure or root segment.
  8. MDA or MDH(icao)
    Minimum decent altitude on non precision approach or circling approach. Cannot descend below without the required visual reference.

    MDA is msl. MDH is in reference to aerodrome elevation.
  9. MEA
    • Minimum enroute altitude. The lowest published altitude between radio fixes that provides:
    • *obstacle clearance requirements
    • *navigational signal coverage
    • *Two way communication
  10. Minimum fuel
    Little to no delay can be accepted. Not an emergency yet.
  11. Minimum IFR altitudes
    Mountainous: 2000ft above highest within 4NM

    Non mountainous: 1000ft above highest within 4NM
  12. MOCA
    Minimum obstruction clearance altitude.

    • Minimum altitude that provides obstacle clearance
    • 22nm of vor reception
    • No guarantee of radar or radio
    • Shown below mea on chart.
  13. MORA
    Minimum off route altitude

    Route MORA - obstacle clearance 10 miles either side.

    • Grid MORA - clears obstacles by 1k up to 5 k obstacles. Clears by 2 k for obstacles above 5k
    • Located inside late and long grid.
  14. MRA
    • Minimum reception altitude.
    • Can receive signal from nav aid
  15. MSA
    • Minimum sector altitude
    • Provides 1k clearance 25nm from nav aid
    • Does not garante navaid reception
  16. Mountainous terrain definition
    3000ft in 10nm
  17. MCA
    • Minimum crossing altitude
    • lowest you can cross a fix.
    • Looks like flaged x
  18. What indicates a fly over fix?
    It is circled
  19. What indicates ba compulsory reporting point?
    • It is filled in.
    • Only required to report when not in radar contact.
  20. What are standard takeoff minimums?
    • 1 sm 2 or less engines
    • 1/2 sm 3 or more engines
  21. What are Q routes?
    Q−routes are available for use by RNAV

    equipped aircraft between 18,000 feet MSL and

    FL 450 inclusive. Q−routes are depicted on Enroute

    High Altitude Charts.
  22. What are The routes?
    T−routes are available for use by GPS or

    GPS/WAAS equipped aircraft from 1,200 feet above

    the surface (or in some instances higher) up to but not

    including 18,000 feet MSL. T−routes are depicted on

    Enroute Low Altitude Charts.
  23. When do you need an alternate?
    • 1 hour before or after ETA
    • 2000 ft and 3 sm
  24. What is required or an alternate?
    • Precision 600 ft 2 sm
    • Non precision 800 ft 2 sm
