    IFR flying

    Marc, Found an old 430 when I was acquiring equipment for my panel. I was going to upgrade it to WAAS but Garmin raised to price sooooooo much, decided against it. Probably a good thing, I've had my rating for 20 years but never used it. I think I'll keep my personal minimums at around 6-800 ft. Just want to get through coastal layers. My guess is I'll only need to use it in actual 6-8 times a year with an additional 10 or so times a year in VFR for currency. Expect to fly IFR for maybe another 12-15 years, then VFR only. With the price to upgrade around $12k that means every actual approach is about $125/ea. Not worth it to me and flying non-precision is probably safer. Anyway there aren't many precision GPS approaches in the mountains anyway. They are mostly LNAV.

    IFR flying

    Now that my panel is finished with a IFR navigator, I was wondering where others flying IFR are lowering the gear and the landing brake ? At the IAF, Initial Approach Fix, FAF, Final Approach Fix ? I'm hoping to complete my IPC this summer.
