1) At “700” feet AGL, turn direct to SAU VOR

2) Climb to “2500” feet

3) When “3.0” DME from SAU VOR, press “P” to pause the simulation

Record your:

Altitude_________________________________(40 pts)

CDI needle position to SAU VOR_____________(35 pts)

Radial inbound___________________________(30 pts)

Heading________________________________(20 pts)

VS1     _________________________________(15 pts)

Gear     _________________________________(10 pts)

Flaps     _________________________________(5 pts)

4) Press “P” to continue the simulation

“The United States has a nationality mark of 'N'. Ireland has either an 'EI' or an EJ'. Austria has an 'OE'. The numbers following the nationality mark, on a plane, are the registration numbers issued to that particular airplane in its own country. Now, have fun with this puzzle!”

5) Follow the instructions carefully on the following word change:

Now, on the San Francisco Terminal Area chart, the original phrase's location has a tower at a certain AGL altitude, and the resulting phrase's location has a tower at a certain AGL altitude. Go to the AirLeg which is the difference between those two AGL altitudes.
