Summary

It is primarily for use in an emergency, and it can be triggered by pushing a single button, or it can trigger itself if the pilot doesn’t respond to a series of system prompts, such as when a pilot is hypoxic or incapacitated. It relies on the Garmin autopilot for engine management.

91 Lessons Learned in a Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet flying STARs or IFR Arrival Procedures + General Aviation News


91 Lessons Learned in a Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet flying STARs or IFR Arrival Procedures + GA News

If you have a question you’d like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

Flyings IFR STARS or Arrival Procedures
91 Max talks in detail about IFR Arrival Procedures, also called STARs. These are ATC-coded IFR route for IFR aircraft flying to a specific airport. There are different kinds of clearances you can get on an Arrival. If you’re cleared to “descend VIA” an Arrival, then you can descend at pilot discretion to reach all of the published altitudes for each fix.

Some key takeaways for pilots should be:
1. Read the Arrival charts ahead of time to find all altitude and speed restrictions.
2. Don’t descend automatically on an Arrival unless you been issued a Descend Via clearance by ATC.
3. If you’re not able to make a speed or altitude crossing restriction, notify ATC as soon as possible.
4. When loading an Arrival into your GPS, be aware that you may have to load a transition, even if you’re not flying on a transition, but have been cleared directly to the fix for which the Arrival procedure is named.
5. Use the FLC or IAS mode on the autopilot to meet speed restriction while descending.
