Re: Entering controlled IFR from uncontrolled airport

Touchy subject, If you were departing an airport contolled, technically you'd need the vfr release (not enforced outside of the MF). You got the inbetween airspace figured out, so you could depart vfr, and even enter controlled vmc. It depends on where you are going, and how you are going to get the...

Re: Composite VFR/IFR flightplan woes

Not a problem, just not sure how specific you want to get. When you call into the FIC state "itinerary" as apposed to "flight plan". Read up on what the differences are (not a big deal for this specific situation). File the IFR Itinerary, point-to-point-to-point. Just as you normally would with an "...

Hey photofly, You're using the composite improperly, I won't get into the primary usage but, what you want to do for that specific situation is use an IFR Itinerary with two or more legs via waypoints; full stops are not necessary to define "a leg". File the flight as it will be flown, but on initia...

Nothing there that I don't agree with.

I don't disagree with having differing opinions about how to affect chang...
