Smart Flight Training posts a question (and an answer) you might find on an FAA Knowledge Test or during the oral portion of a checkride each Tuesday.
Today’s question is about IFR flight plans and when they are required.
When is an IFR flight plan required?
- When less than VFR conditions exist in either class E or class G airspace and in class A airspace.
- In all class E airspace when conditions are below VFR, in class A airspace, and in defense zone airspace.
- In class E airspace when IMC exists or in class A airspace.
