166 Instrument Flying Gotchas, Filing IFR Flight Plans, and a Pilot Deviation + GA News

166 Max talks about IFR gotchas he’s encountered recently. He also talks about his recent five-day trip flying a Vision Jet around the West. He discusses closing flight plans at non-towered airports and how failing to do so can lead to a pilot deviation. He discusses his Rule of Two which led to going missed early, the DFC90 autopilot, and a restriction for RNAV-equipped aircraft starting at an IAF.
