Features February 2018 Issue
We fly instrument approaches in the schmutz. When itís VMC we usually fly a visual approach. But thereís also a charted visual flight procedure thatís restrictive and still needs VMC.
Recently, as is customary when I give an instrument proficiency check (IPC), before the flight I review en route and approach charts with the pilot. While randomly going through the Florida approach book, we saw the North Bay Visual RWY 18L charted visual flight procedure (CVFP) at the St Pete-Clearwater airport (KPIE) and a couple questions came up.
