You can be sure to do a lot of VOR/NDB work. It's by no means old-fashioned yet.


I thought I was doing good trying to avoid those airport hotels... and look at me now.

And you are absolutely guranteed to get an NDB approach on your instrument flight test, complete with Procedure Turn, and probably a hold at an NDB fix.

I didn't get an NDB approach on my checkride. That might have something to do with the fact that the airplane that I took the checkride in didn't have an ADF. If I remember correctly, I had a VOR approach (partial panel), a VOR/DME approach (no timing) and an ILS. Didn't do a procedure turn either. Did some holding, some steep turns, some back-course localizer tracking. My oral only took about 45 minutes, and we only went over IFR enroute charts, and instruments.

In answer to the original question - Expect to be able to navigate using VORs, NDBs, ILSs, GPSs, and be able to do all of it partial panel (meaning using the Magnetic compass when the DG is covered) all under the hood. You will also need to be able to hold at VORs, NDBs, and Intersections, and use the proper entry.

I believe the FARs say that you are required to perform any approach that the aircraft in which you perform your flight test is equipped for. ie - No ADF, no NDB approaches. No DME, no VOR/DME approaches.

buhh bye
