Habut One Departure

Asked by: 2149 views Instrument Rating

Working on the IFR Written - Can anyone provide a SIMPLE explanation on how to reason through the backcourse departure question using the Habut One Departure figures?  I know we're dealing with reverse sensing ... at least I think we are ... but I can't reason my way through this one.

    Very helpful and simple, Lucas; thanks!

    Is it me or are the FAA test questions written to confuse you? 🙂

    The video answers the question very well. One thing I noticed, the narrator was talking about the localized frequencies and stated the top frequency is 119.50. Obviously a slip of the tongue. The top frequency is 111.95.

    For what it is worth.
