Weekly tips, technique and training from IFR.

Preface

You plan your flight to overfly AWOS-equipped airports reporting VMC so you stay in good weather. Will this work?

1.

Sure. It gives you many options to land en route.

2.

Nope. Areas near airports might still be below VFR minimums.

3.

Yes. You have near-continuous weather reporting all along your route.

4.

No. Automated stations have cloud height and perhaps additional reporting restrictions.

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.
