Caribbean Revisited - Part 4 - IFR into Nevis

Post by waynemcc999 »


In Part 4 of this short series we revisit an RNAV approach into Nevis, with LOTS of stepdowns-- as it actually occurred IRL, and recreated on a home simulator. We also discuss the traditional dive-and-drive strategy for stepdowns, versus what a modern digital autopilot provides… let’s call it a “Drive until-it’s-timed-perfectly Descend” strategy… and the benefits that ensue. This video captures every button push and knob twist for flying the RNAV 10 at TKPN on a G1000/Perspective. Wayne, GeezerGeek Pilot
