In last Friday’s AVsavvy question, we showed you the ICAO portion of a flight plan and asked you to find the error.
IMPORTANT: If you haven’t yet participated, YOU CAN STILL TURN BACK NOW AND TEST YOUR SKILLS.
Below is the answer and explanation. Thank you to everyone who participated. Unfortunately, less than half of you got it right. L
Answer 1. There are no errors in this flight plan.
Wrong answer. The aircraft is non-RVSM but it’s incorrectly filed at F/L 340.
Answer 2. Aircraft can’t use W20N airway as it’s a domestic airway only.
Wrong answer. This is not a domestic-only airway.
Answer 3. The aircraft is non-RVSM, but it’s incorrectly filed at flight level 340.
Correct answer. Aircraft is non-RVSM and was incorrectly filed at F/L 340.
Answer 4. The aircraft can’t use W20N because it’s not RNP5 equipped.
Wrong answer. This airway doesn’t have an RNP5 restriction.
