Weekly tips, technique and training from IFR.

Preface

ATC gave you a new course to fly. You made the change and went back to daydreaming until the controller asked if you’d turned and said you were 300 feet high. Why?

1.

You changed the altimeter setting, not the course as instructed

2.

You disconnected the autopilotís vertical mode

3.

The controller is using NEXTGEN and it has a bug

4.

Daydreaming is a very bad idea in the cockpit

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.
