Ride along on an IFR cross-country to Daytona Beach with Spencer Suderman
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to plan and fly an IFR flight? Join Spencer Suderman as he does just that, on a flight from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach, FL. You’ll learn about the entire process, starting with filing a flight plan in ForeFlight to retrieving an IFR clearance from ATC, en-route navigation, and how to fly the instrument approach at the destination.
This trip was flown in VFR conditions, but it’s the perfect example of how a private pilot with an instrument rating can use these skills to still fly on days when the clouds are low or there is reduced visibility.
