  1. I used to do a lot of IFR airline flights on VATSIM so I do have experience on the network. These days I don't have much free time so have been touring various regions of the world in smaller aircraft typically flying a PC-Porter, BN2 Islander or the SR 22. I fly through everything from international airports to remote dirt strips, with leg distances being anything from 10 miles to 200. I'd like to do these flights on VATSIM. Would I be better off or indeed able to stick to IFR rules which I understand well, or would VFR fit better, bearing in mind I only have Navigraph and littlenavmap and not any specific VFR charts, or any VFR ATC interaction experience (although I have been reading up on it)?
  2. Hey folks, I’ve mostly done vfr flights on vatsim with the exception of one ifr, but I have a few questions, well two really. The first is even when using offline atc programs I’m always confused in when to descend. Is atc supposed to tell you when and clear you to an altitude? Or do you start your descent at the appropriate point based on aircraft performance? Im assuming it’s the former as ifr is all very calculated to get everyone in safely. Second question is, sometimes when I load procedures in the fmc, it looks like a mess around the airport itself. What I mean is, some arrivals to approaches look like you fly directly over the airport to make a hairpin turn to join the ils, ect. For instance the SARGO3 in to kcvg. To do the ils rwy 9 it basically has me arrive from the south west, cross over the aiport to the north and loop back around. Is this realistic? I attached the procedure from foreflight for reference. I have the basic idea and concept of ifr but want to have as much of an understanding as I can so I don’t get overwhelmed live on the network. Thanks! -Chris
