An Overview of STARs - Live ENCORE Presentation

While your arrival chart looks and functions just like your departure and enroute charts, arrivals have unique challenges that are not to be overlooked. Transition, vertical navigation planning, communication, and other increases in cockpit workload mean that you need to be reading arrival charts, not deciphering them. In An Overview of STARs, our chart professionals will show you how to use your charts more effectively in your transition from enroute to arrival and, ultimately, set you up for a successful approach and landing. This is a LIVE encore presentation (including Q&A) of our popular 2014 webinar!

Cleared for Approach - Live ENCORE Presentation

An instrument approach means of peak cockpit workload for any pilot. Situational awareness, changing environmental factors, the convergence of air traffic, interpreting instructions from controllers, monitoring airport conditions, and avoiding obstacles are just a few of the duties you may juggle as you ease your airplane toward the runway (that may still be obscured by clouds). Our chart experts will show you how the seamless and logical design of your approach charts easily deliver the procedures, communications, and navigation detail you need for landing. This is a LIVE encore presentation (including Q&A) of our popular 2014 webinar!

Checking In At - Live Encore Presentation

May 21, 2015 5:00 PM MDT

Unlike lower-altitude charts, lack of clutter makes enroute charts simple, clean and easy to understand. But it also means that every symbol, line, number, and color must work harder to keep you informed and flying confidently. Our chart insiders will unlock new levels of information that you can put to work on your next flight.

Unusual Approaches

Apr 30, 2015 5:00 PM MDT

The term "unusual approaches" conjures up images of Aspen, CO; Bozeman, MT; Jackson Hole, WY; and just about every airport in Alaska. But unusual approaches are just as common in places like Baltimore, Boston and New York. They're everywhere, and they can turn a standard approach into a head scratcher at the most inopportune time. In our Unusual Approaches webinar, we'll talk about the terrain, obstacles and airspace designs that turn standard approaches into the unusual. We'll show you how to break down several unusual approaches, the keys to planning and navigating them successfully, and give you the kind of confidence that will make a straight-in approach to 200 and ½ seem, well, mind-numbing.

Even the most standard instrument departures can be confusing at times-especially at unfamiliar airports. Add an obstacle-a tree near the end of field, a nearby TV tower, or a mountain along your departure path-and a simple instrument departure can get dangerously complex. As a pilot, it's your job to anticipate and familiarize yourself with departure procedures (DP) and obstacle departure procedures (ODP) for any runway on the field. In part two of our Chart Clinic Confidential series, our chart experts will show you where to find the departure information you need, no matter the airport or the runway. Due to unprecedented response, we're reproducing this webinar LIVE including Q&A!

Cleared for Takeoff - Encore Presentation

Jan 23, 2015 5:00 PM MST

Sometimes the hardest part of flying is moving around the airport. In the air, you likely have visual references, a panel overflowing with data, and a straight line to fly. On the ground, it's very different. In Cleared for Takeoff, we'll make help you master airport diagrams, detailing how charts are indexed, revision and effective dates, lighting, usable runway lengths, alternate and takeoff minimums and so much more. The encore presentation of our FREE Cleared for Takeoff webinar is the first in the Chart Clinic Confidential Series. Due to unprecedented response, we're offering a reproduction of the webinar, with live Q&A, on Friday, January 23 @ 7:00 (EST)/4:00(PST).

Cleared For Approach

Nov 06, 2014 11:00 AM MST

An instrument approach is a time of peak cockpit workload for any flight. Situational awareness, changing environmental factors, the convergence of air traffic, interpreting instructions from controllers, monitoring airport conditions, and avoiding obstacles are just a few of the duties you may juggle as you ease your airplane toward a runway that may still be obscured by clouds. In the final segment of our five-part Chart Clinic Confidential series, our chart experts will show you how the seamless and logical design of your approach charts easily deliver the procedures, communications, and navigation detail you need for landing.

Descend Via - An Overview of STARs

Sep 24, 2014 11:00 AM MDT

Imagine you've departed an airfield, flown several hundred-or several thousand-miles, and it's time to make your way down. While your arrival chart looks and functions just like your departure and enroute charts, arrivals have unique challenges that are not to be overlooked. Transition, vertical navigation planning, communication, and other increases in cockpit workload mean that you need to be reading arrival charts, not deciphering them. In part 4 of Chart Clinic Confidential series, our chart professionals will show to use your charts more effectively in your transition from enroute to arrival and, ultimately, set you up for a successful approach and landing.

Whether you fly high or low altitudes, enroute charts are the key to turning a successful departure into an anticipated arrival. Unlike lower-altitude charts, lack of clutter makes enroute charts simple, clean and easy to read. But it also means that every symbol, line, number, and color must work harder to keep you informed and flying confidently. Part 3 of our Chart Clinic Confidential series digs deep into the structure and symbology of the enroute chart. Our chart insiders will unlock new levels of information that you can put to work on your next flight-and every flight thereafter.
