On the afternoon of Wednesday, 7 Dec, 2022. The Cincinnati, Ohio area had been IMC all day and a single engine aircraft, based at Hogan Field (KHAO) near Cincinnati was flying instrument approaches in IMC conditions with the help of Cincinnati Approach.   

The aircraft departed Hogan field, located under the northern portion of the Cincinnati Class Bravo, and its first two instrument approaches went relatively well. It flew to the southeast at 4000 feet, and was given vectors to the RNAV (GPS) 3 Right approach @ KLUK, which is Lunken Field. After flying a low approach to minimums, it flew north to fly the RNAV (GPS) runway 01 @ I68, which is the Warren country airport.

The aircraft again flew a low approach to minimums and departed to the south, with a plan to fly the RNAV (GPS) 29 back into Hogan Field. To do that, Cincinnati Approach issued a series of vectors, and ultimately told the aircraft to fly a heading of 260 and join the runway 29 approach course.

Later the controller said “You appear to be kind of all over the place.” Subsequently, the controller declared an emergency for the pilot. The pilot was unable to fly the next instrument approach, so the controller ended up talking him down through the clouds.
