169 Max talks with American Bonanza Society Executive Director Tom Turner about FAA regulations for fuel gauge accuracy. Max discusses what to do if you have to go around after cleared for an IFR Visual Approach, and how it differs depending upon whether you’re at a towered on non-towered airport. Max also reads listener emails about close calls including icing, fuel management, and weather accidents.
