If you have a question you’d like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone.

100 Max talks Approach Plate Minimums used by Instrument rated pilots. When can you descend below the MDA or DA? What governs whether an aircraft is in Category A, B, C, etc.? Which governs whether you can land, the minimum altitude, or the visibility? How low can you descend when you have the approach lights in sight? Which items do you have to see before you’re allowed to descend to land?
