Short Final for 23 August 2004

Recommended Posts

From Avweb.com's twice weekly newsletter of things AV8ing....It's Short Final time...A long time ago, bopping along in my 180 Arrow at 10,000 feet, IFR in VFR conditions, from Boston to Kalamazoo. It had taken me 20 minutes to get that high -- 10 of that for the last 2,000 feet. Then, Cleveland Center asked me to climb to 11,000 feet for traffic...Me: You mean it?ARTCC: Sure do.Me: Do I hafta?ARTCC: Yep.Me: Okay ... but it's gonna take me ten minutes or better.ARTCC: Okay, then if I ask you to descend to 9,000 for ten minutes, how long will it take you to get back to 10?Me: Oh, 'bout the same, 1MV.ARTCC: Okay, I guess I'll have to go to plan B.... 1MV, maintain one-zero thousand. United 123, turn right 20-degrees for traffic; American 456, maintain niner thousand for opposite direction traffic, 12 o'clock 10 miles at 10 thou; Trans World 789, cancel direct, turn right 250-degrees, and stop the descent at 0ne-two thousand ...Doc Bryant
