Flying WAAS: The Sequel

Before I flew south for a few days of aerobatic practice over the Nevada desert, I took advantage of another good day for IFR practice in the Pacific Northwest. Today’s flight in the A36 was a round-robin excursion: KRNTKHQMKOLMKRNT, with RNAV (GPS) approaches at KHQM (RNAV Rwy 24) and KOLM (RNAV Rwy 17).

KRNT-KHQM-KOLM-KRNT-IFR

I won’t provide a detailed narrative–it was a routine flight, albeit another example of how wonderful WAAS is. But it was a pretty day in a Northwest way, and if you want to fly along virtually, you can find pictures, charts, and a GPS track file in .kmz (Google Earth) format in one of my SkyDrive folders.

To read more about flying WAAS, see my account of a similar flight on February 11.
