HAGAR Study Session ==> VFR & LO Chart Study Guide <==

Postby Fred Wilson » Sun Oct 28, 2012 7:57 am

This topic section is dedicated to a HAGAR Study Guide purposes:
- Specifically the 50% of Transport Canada's exam which is now allocated to the VFR Chart (and Enroute Low Altitude Chart (LO) Chart) part of the test.

Transport Canada's Hang Glider Regulations

Pilots who want to write the HAGAR Exam are well advised to pick up VFR Charts for the regions they will be flying in.
(and it is a good idea to get an (LO) Enroute Low Altitude Chart)
- Up to 50% of the Exam time is now spent on the VFR Chart.

Online examples are printed below, but you will need to know more information areas than are included in them,
and you will need the Legend provided on the charts to understand what the symbols etc stand for.

I REMIND ONE AND ALL, flying (as an example) in FlyOk Country: the North Okanagan BC http://www.flyok.ca
That Baldy / King Eddie + Vernon Mt + Mara + Bolean + Blue Grouse are HAGAR ONLY

You MUST fly below 700' AGL, following Land Contour or you MUST file your HAGAR first before flying there.

Glenn Derouin's (Paraglide Canada) property may be JUST inside CYA 122 (A)(H) - if in fact it is.

OSA's Lavington Launch and the Lumby Airforce launches are all well within CYA 122 (A)(H)

See the definition of Class F Advisory Airspace (CYA's) at: http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/civilaviation/p ... #rac-2-8-6

Sailwally wrote:The jet is going ~ 350mph. That is about 1 mile in ten seconds, less than one circle in a thermal.

Less than 20 pilots in the valley have their HAGAR.
- The rest are flying illegally - unless they restrict their flights a maximum of 700' AGL for all flights outside the CYA.

I hope we can have a short OSA meeting to set up a HAGAR Study Session this winter.

If anyone is interested, reply here or Email / PM me, so we'll know if there is enough interest to put one on.

Permission to publish the following charts, as educational material, has been received from Transport Canada and NAV Canada.

North Okanagan VFR Chart (Out of date version) provided for study purposes only.

- Up to 50% of the HAGAR examination is now spent on VFR Charts.

If you enlarge the photo, you will see a the inside compass rose enclosing King Eddie / Baldy going around to the west side of Okanagan lake, obviously including Blue Grouse Launch.
- You''ll see a Blue E700 on the west side of Okangan Lake, across from Ellison Park and again south of King Eddie Launch.

That means one thing. Class E Airspace starts at 700' AGL following land contour inside all that compass rose.

King Eddie/ Baldy Launches, Vernon Mt and Blue Grouse are HAGAR Country only, unless you are ground skimming / speed gliding all the way to the bottom. Period.

Can you find an example of the base of Class E Airspace on this chart?

What tells you where the Airspace Boundaries change?

Next:
Read the "fine print" information about CYA 122 (A)(H) - found at the far right bottom corner of the CYA.

The Okanagan LE Chart (Out of date version) is provided, with permission to publish, for study purposes only.

See also NAV Canada's Designated Airspace Handbook - because the VFR and LO Charts are too cluttered to hold all the data.

This (Victor Airways - found on the "LO Chart" = Enroute Low Altitude Chart) also is NEED TO KNOW stuff.

Victor 302 starting off at the Enderby VORTAC (an IFR air navigation aid) heads down the west side of the Nth Okanagan Valley heading to the Kelowna Airport.

Image

Question 1:
Victor Airway 302 heading SSW from the Enderby VORTAC has what Minimum Enroute Alitude (MEA)?

Answer: _________________

- We are required to stay 1000' below Victor Airways' Minimum Enroute Alitude (MEA) for safety separation reasons.

Question 2:
Where does Victor Airway 302 drop from 8200? (Heading south towards Blue Grouse) to 6100' ?
Answer: West of the Vernon Airport. So is in effect at Blue Grouse... and WATCH OUT flying SE from Bollean or Stoney Creek!

Question 3:
Where does Victor Airway 302 drop from 11100 (Enroute to and from Edmonton.) to 8200? (Heading south towards Blue Grouse)
Answer: At the Enderby VORTAC marked by a Black Polygon with a box around it.
______________________________

Victor 354 starting off at the Enderby VORTAC goes down the east side of the Nth Okanagan Valley to the Kelowna Airport.

Question 4:
Victor Airway 354 heading south from the Enderby VORTAC has what Minimum Enroute Alitude (MEA)?
Answer:
Looking at V 354 stamped over Vernon, you see two numbers. 9900 over *9400. - What are these? Which is the important one for us?
9900 Is the Minimum Enroute Alitude. 9400 is the Minimum Obstruction Altitude. The MEA is what applies to us

- We are required to stay 1000' below Victor Airways' Minimum Enroute Alitude (MEA) for safety separation reasons.

Question 5:
Victor Airway 354 coming from Cranbrook to the Enderby VORTAC at N50°40'40.3" W118°56'19.7" has what Minimum Enroute Alitude (MEA)?

Answer: _________________

______________________________

Question 6:
Which of the two applies to us flying inside the "Compass Rose" around the Enderby VORTAC = directly behind Mara Launch?

Answer: _________________

Question 7: So what is the maximum altitude you are allowed to fly anywhere around Mara? (Hint = Safety Separation)

Answer: _________________

Question 8: How far south of Mara do you have to fly before V302 does not impact the MEA of V354 on our XC Route to Vernon?

Answer: _________________ (What is the width of Victor Airways?)

To answer this you need to look up in TP 14371 - Transport Canada Aeronautical Information Manual (TC AIM) in the RAC Section.
