Preface

What’s with the semi-circle surrounding USTIK intersection, northwest of BOI VOR?

1.

It points out that USTIK isnít part of the airway (V500), even though it passes close to the fix.

2.

It tells you that USTIK is along V500, but the co-located beacon should not be used to identify it

3.

Thatís what it looks like when thereís an NDB on the airway.

4.

Obviously itís a really, really, tight DME arc for practice, if you dare.

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.
