For RAIM you need 5 satellites or 4 satellites + baroaiding (barometric altitude information is linked to GPS) and for FDE (Failure detection and exclusion) you need 6 satellites for 5 satellites + baroaiding.

Greetings !

Slightly off topic, but has any one ever successfully tried getting their ATPL Oral exam dates changed ?

If yes, what is the procedure ?
Any input will be appreciated.
Thanks.

Jeppessen related Question.

Hello fellow Aviators!

I am still trying to figure out what does the symbol right on top of an Approach plate stands for... It basically has a small globe with two wings on it. It is also not found on all approach plates and is similar to the symbol found along with 'magnetic north' indicator on the approach chart....

Any help would be highly appreciated!!

Cheers!!

@ KP747
if u see "NOT TO SCALE" below that globe with 2 wings....to my knowledge it just means that it is non conformal, that is not to be scaled.....this is generally seen in SIDs and STARs......

Nav VIVA Apr 2012 Questions

Started with basics questions on definition of Course, Track, Hdg

DME Arc - How to calculate the approx distance to touchdown

Approach Chart / STAR / SID
There was a chart that was for some airline / operator specific. Can some one help in finding out what all are the symbols used for various airlines / operators.

Lots of Mental DR questions gain time / speed reqd

Airspace Classifications- what about SAR in these air spaces- Need help on this

SLOP

Can someone tell about uncontrolled airspace. It is given at many places that in In India there are no uncontrolled air space. But I remember during RTR classes lots of time uncontrolled airspace was mentioned during routing.

where all other than aviation are Lambert charts used.

Given two longs on equator (Not diametrically opposite). What track to follow if they have to meet reciprocal at the poles. Anyone any idea on this.

RVSM reqmts - what are the figures for difference between the altimeters, Altitude hold / warning. DGCA CAR gives different figures on diff pages. Reqmt of TCAS-is it there or just recommended. The

Questions on notes on a Apch Chart. Don't answer without looking at the chart even if it is too obvious an answer. As far as I know, if the controller tells you to do something then it is understood that he is in control and doing so depending on the traffic But I think he expected me to look at the chart and readout the note.

ETOPS, who has to approve and why? Definition. Emphasis on nil winds and single engine cruise speeds. He kept hinting on what are the environmental factors that are affecting.

Answers and clarifications on the above will be appreciated.

Minimum eye Height over threshold is the Threshold Crossing height from pilots eye to the ground (its a self explanatory definition but)
To put it in a simple way,


Aircraft like A320 have a minimum wheel clearance of 20 feet(from Wheel to threshold)....1

From pilots eye to wheel is know in the FCOM which is 24ft in A320.....2

MEHT is basically Point 1 + Point 2 which is 45 feet

if the MEHT/TCH is less than 45ft the aircraft will not have adequate clearance
hence the A320 in that case cannot use PAPI.
