Instrument Flight 10: Narrowing Down the Problem
We thought we’d try our luck in Lakeland again today. At least we got the radio problem narrowed down. We ruled out the headsets and intercom as the source of the problem. (Com one transmits garbled but receives well; com two broadcasts fine but receives distant signals poorly. Since there’s no audio panel, both radios are always receiving, so it’s a bad idea to put them both on the same frequency.) Time to go back to the avionics shop.
Since we couldn’t talk to Approach, we got cleared to land and did a VOR approach on the way in.
Today: 1 hour instrument time
Total: 16 hours instrument time
