Hi Guys

 

New to VFR in the UK and of course I have a big pile of questions. Hope you don't mind

 

First of all my friend Phillip did answered me with regards the quadrantal rule, however, Do we change alt every time we change heading based of the quadrantal rule?

 

Any body knows where I can get or have UK charts for VFR?

 

On cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] C approach does the 20nm marging to call TWR, CTR or whowever is, with current position apply?

and the same for cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] D (5nm) and B (20nm)

 

I will leave it here, but I am sure I'll be back for more answers. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide.

 

all the best

It's recommended, not compulsory. If flying a pre-planned route from A to B, yes I would change altitude accordingly. For general handling, probably not.

Thes are the UK charts - some of them have VFR information - check the airport you are interested in.

There are no Cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] B or C airports in the UK. In general I suggest you call ATC at least 5 minutes flying time before entering cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] D

The main VFR charts (the equivalent of US sectionals) are not available online. You can buy paper or electronic versions, but unless you are really keen on flying with completely up-to-date charts, I'd suggest using the free programme Plan-G http://www.tasoftware.co.uk/ which takes its airspace data direct from FS9 or FSX and displays it on Google maps. Things like UK VRPs have also been added. It also has a lot of useful facilities for the VFR pilot, and does actually cover the whole world.

 

For local airfield VFR information check the NATS site that Mike listed.
