AirLeg 33

1) Establish a RIGHT BASE to FINAL on San Francisco International runway 10R

“The approach lights and runway lights at an airport are controlled by three means possible. One is the control tower personnel whenever the tower is active. Two is the Flight Service Station or FSS at some locations where no control tower is active. But this FSS function is slowly being phased out. Thirdly, when at selected airports, the pilot can control the approach and runway lights.”

2) Enjoy a practice touch & go landing

3) On the go, maintain runway heading and level off at “1500” feet

4) Where on a “VFR Sectional Aeronautical Chart” would you find the highest terrain elevation for that chart?
