by Fred J. Calfior and Douglas W. Miller

AirLeg 103

1) At “20.0” DME from SFO VOR, turn towards the two “bridges” north of Palo Alto airport

2) When abeam the “KGO RADIO STATION”, press “P” to pause the simulation

Record your:

Heading_________________________________(25 pts)

Radial from SFO VOR______________________(25 pts)

DME from SFO VOR_______________________(20 pts)

Altitude_________________________________(15 pts)

VSI       _________________________________(10 pts)

DME from OAK VOR______________________(10 pts)

Ceiling of the Class B airspace you're in________(5 pts)

Palo Alto's ATIS frequency__________________(5 pts)

3) Press “P” to continue the simulation

4) What is the operational MHz frequency band of the DMEs?

If your answer is “962 to 1213”, find the outbound radial for

airway V195, reverse the numbers, and drop the last number. Go

to that AirLeg.

If your answer is “982 to 1115”, add up the Maximum Elevation Figures

(MEF) for the area blocks that include 1) San Francisco

International airport, 2) the Toll Plaza, and 3) Treasure Island.

Divide by 100 and go to that AirLeg.

If your answer is “976 to 1311”, find the designated longest runway

length at NAS Alameda and divide by 100. Go to that AirLeg.
