Been corresponding with a GA pilot in Israel the past day or so.
He had sent me a VFR sectional (map?) of how they navigate inside Israel. Their VFR requirements appear to me to be more strict than our IFR requirements as not only do they fly checkpoint to checkpoint visually, but they are restricted to ONE altitude only between checkpoints on VFR flights and always in touch with ATC.
When was the last time you did a dead reckoning flight? Why I ask?
Snippet of his last email to me verbatim.
“i sent you here the link to IFR map inside of israel, i think they lood exectuly like the IFR map outside of israel the only diffrent is that all the country around us a re enemys soo if we want to fly to another country we fly over the big sea and we lost the VOR signal, that why we sould always navigate not only with the VOR but also by the time on the clock (old navigation).”
Yep, subject line says it all…
