I have a question about procedure turns. I’ve already ran the scenario past local instructors, and pilots, and the responses I get are about 50/50 so I thought I would throw it on here.
Ok so Iv had my instrument for just under a year so still learning each time i use it. I try to do at least two approaches a month as time and money permit. Recently I had filed to an airport aprox 20 miles to the south that had a VOR approach. The weather was VFR but ceiling was 1800 so I would be in actual enrought. Now I will explain right up to my clearance for the approach, and then ask what you would have done. But first here is the AP
ok now that you studied it heres the scenario. You’ve just departed the airport 20 miles to the north of the destination so things are going to be moving fast. Upon initial contact with approach you are told “climb maintain 3000, proceed direct to VOR, cross VOR at or above 3000, cleared for the VOR approach to Ross County airport.” All dialed in you head direct to the VOR. About 3 miles from the VOR ATC is kind enough to provide the local weather, and then approves a freq change to destination airport. At this point how would you proceed with the approach in regards to the procedure turn.
once I get a few responses ill tell you what I did and why.
