Preface

Why are there two separate “DME Required” notes, yet the procedure doesn’t have DME in its title?

1.

DME is only required for certain “specified” operations, not all operations.

2.

DME isn’t required for the final segment of the procedure, so it’s not included in the procedure title.

3.

DME is not really required, since GPS could be used in lieu of the DME.

4.

It must be an oversight, since DME is obviously required, per the notes.

If you enjoyed taking this interactive quiz and would like to see more like it, go to the IFR Quiz page. And if you thought it was unfair, confusing, or a waste of time, we'd like you to tell us that, too. And if you have an idea for a subject that you think would make a good future IFR Quiz, be sure to let us know.
