Adventures

Adventures are flights and situations in which you are typically coached and instructed by a co-pilot and the Air Traffic Controllers. The co-pilot will usually also handle all radio and NAV tuning and communications.

Here's one of the many - Checkerboard Approach at Hong Kong - Boeing 737

The on-line help files contain full briefings for the flights - here is the essential checklist for this one :

  • After takeoff from runway 13, fly runway heading


  • Continue to the 23 DME fix from the Hong Kong ILS

    737 - Horizontal Situation Indicator
    The Horizontal Situation Indicator in the 737. Note I am flying along the ILS FROM runway 13 and at a distance of 21.5 miles.
  • then turn left to heading 330
  • intercept the Cheung Chau (CH) 090-degree radial inbound to CH (inbound course 270)

    737 - Horizontal Situation Indicator

  • At CH, expect instructions to slow to 200 knots and maintain 6,000
  • Expect lower altitude in 5 miles
  • At 7 DME from CH, turn right heading 045 and descend to 4,500 ft



    Check Flaps 15 degrees and Gear DOWN

  • Expect a clearance to fly the IGS runway 13 approach
  • Report the Kilo Lima 9 DME fix to the tower for landing clearance.

... and here's the landing - probably one of the more dangerous things you can do in a 737 !
