Training Video and Altitude

Postby Tommar98 » Wed Jan 23, 2019 8:14 am

So I am new to this. I am working on my IFR rating in RW and want to use this resource as a tool to get more proficient at ATC work, clearances, etc. I watched one training video on a flight from Torance to Van Nuys. There is a tech route specified and the video shows that in flight plan but it shows the altitude as 4000. Not sure why that would be since the ILS approach has an entry at 6000 and some of the terrain around that area is pretty high. At some point on that short trip a single engine plane has to climb to 6000 if vectored to IAF. Just looking for some feedback. Thanks in advance.

TEC routes are generally area-specific, not airport-specific. If you're going to VNY and you'll be doing the ILS, they'll climb you as needed to adhere to the minimum IFR altitude. That is ultimately happens in that video.

The I-Ratings and SKY ratings could be of interest to you. That, and the free workshops (if not the full Real World IFR product which has similar material to the workshops but better production value).
