You must know the landmarks to navigate the arrival proceedure. Study the pictures carefully.

And please, everyone get some tight pattern practice. You will be expected to make a spot landing on a 75 ft wide taxiway from a short base leg.



I'd bet on it.

Default 100kts at 1200 or 150kts at 1700?

Hey Gang,

Yeah I know, and old thread, but relevant.

So, I'm looking at the Sun-n-Fun procedures (page 6) and as a first timer flying in, I've got a question. It says 100kts or less at 1200 and 150kts at 1700, however, in parentheses it says (Aircraft not capable of 100kts safely). Well, our planes can do both, and going slower gives more time for decisions, but some aircraft (such as my old biplane) can't do 100kts unless they're pointing straight down! In fact it liked 75-80mph and that's about it. Do you guys fly low and use a bigger circle than the low/slow crowd, or fly the high fast circle?

Thanks, Lance

Managing the arrival with Cubs, Kitfoxes, etc. can be a bit tricky, but the NOTAM specifies the low/slow arrival for aircraft which are capable, so that's where I fly.

Default Watch some SNF arrival videos

Here's one

I bet you could fly it on a simulator as well.

This year will be the ninth straight for me flying in. HBC baby

Regarding holds at Lake Parker...It sometimes gets crowded for evening arrivals when the airshow goes long. It's not in the notam, but the controller there can (and has) declared two low circles, one inside the lake shoreline for the really slow stuff (65hp Cubs, your old biplane etc), and one outside the lake shoreline for everybody else. Works really well. If one circle starts becoming a mess, prompt the controller, and ask for two.

Regarding the inbound from Parker... the controller is usually pretty good about spacing. Given no choice, pass a slow bird before the turn to the south. It's safer for both of you when compared to dealing with the clowns who claim they can't fly at 100 knots, and descent blindly from 1500 when they approach the airport.

Usually I fly the lower 100kts arrival. I've had a couple occasions where they cleared me on top due to confused bonanza drivers not up on the notam. It seems almost every year on my arrival there's one not on the same notam page.

I don't mean to dis anyone, just stating my experience over the last 15 years. It's become somewhat of joke for us in our group.

Alright then, low and slow it is. I sure appreciate all your input!

Thanks again, Lance
