307 Texas Pilatus PC-12 N188PC Crash and Vectors to Final

Aviation News Talk podcast

22-12-2023 • 31 mins

Max talks about the FAA Controller Handbook rules for vectoring aircraft and how it relates to the crash of N188PC, a Pilatus PC-12 that crashed in Texas last week. He also talks about helpful tools in the Garmin G1000, G3000, Perspective and GTN 650 and 750 that you can use to tell if you might be getting a late turn from a controller that may take you through the final approach course. He also talks about how to use Garmin’s Runway Extensions and Track Vector when flying a traffic pattern, so that you never overshoot the base to final turn and always roll out on the extended centerline of the runway.
