Can you make it through this flight?


  1. 1) You forgot your logbook at home. You do have your pilot certificate and medical with you. Can you fly?

    That’s right, private pilots don’t need to carry their logbook when using their certificate.

  2. 2) You’re taking a trip with friends, and they want to split the gas cost. Can you ask them to split the tie-down and parking fees, too?

    FAR 61.113 (c) allows you to split airport expenditures equally (pro-rata).

  3. 3) You decide to fly your own plane for the trip. Can you ask your friends to pay $25 each to help cover the cost of your upcoming annual inspection?

    You can’t split maintenance costs, FAR 61.113 (c) only allows you to split direct costs.

  4. 4) While you’re in cruise, you find an unforecast overcast cloud layer from 2000′ to 3000′ MSL covering 20 miles of your route. Can you cross over it at 5500′ MSL? (you’re not instrument rated.)

  5. 5) You’re continuing on the cross country, and you’re about to fly through an active MOA. Can you cross through (VFR)?

    You can cross through an active MOA without coordinating with ATC, but you need to be careful – military aircraft can be hard to see.  Flight following would be a good idea.

  6. 6) You make it to your destination and decide to take a twilight flight. You’ll be taking off before sunset, but landing after sunset, and your right nav light is burned out. The FBO has a replacement bulb, but no mechanic to install it. Can you fix it yourself?

    You can fix the nav light as preventive maintenance. But remember, you need to make a logbook entry describing the work performed, the date of completion, and your signature, certificate number, and kind of certificate.

That was a tough flight…

You scored %. But you learned quite a bit along the way.
