                         Route




Utility
Special use airspace
Nav aids and comms “dead zones”
Divert field
    Equal Time Point
Location where the time required to
return to the last suitable airfield is
equal to the time required to proceed to
the next suitable airfield.




   No wind
                 198 nm=half way
    Distance to ETP = Total distance x GS (return)
                      GS (return) + GS (cont)


headwind

                      231

     Distance to ETP = 396 nm x 140 kts = 231nm
                       140 kts + 100 kts


                                                 tailwind

                            165

     Distance to ETP = 396 nm x 100 kts = 165 nm
                       100 kts + 140 kts
The ADIZ
               ADIZ

 Read  AIM 5-6-1 before you go
 File on ground, not in flight

 Transponder set to assigned squawk

 Monitor 121.5 MHz for “Unknown Rider”

 Penetrate +/- 5 minutes and +/- 20 nm
                  FARs
14 CFR 91 has no requirements
14 CFR 135.165 Extended Overwater
 Defined as 50nm from shore
 Requires redundant radios and nav. systems

14 CFR 135.167 Emergency Equipment
   Life preservers, rafts, pyrotechnics, ELTs
Tolerating Imperfections

 Route
  Straight line is maximum range
  VFR the only option
  Out of nav and comm radio range

 Weather
  Unexpected headwinds
  IMC

 Betting on perfect airplane and pilot!
A revised route!



            159 nm

   396 nm
Flight!
