VOR/DME Arrival Night

This week is an opportunity to practice a VOR/DME arrival, into either New Plymouth or Gisborne airports.

The intention is to fly directly over the arrival airports VOR (ie NP or GS), then follow the instructions as explained in the arrival/approach section below.

Essentially you cross the VOR at 3,000 feet, turn onto the outbound radial heading, then at 8 or 10 DME (see below), turn in and land.

Its not really that complicated!
