Okay, I DO NOT have an instrument rating and haven't start yet. So file this under the dumb question category. I have been wondering something that would be quite relevant (as an owner) if I did get a IR. Our home airport use to have a NDB. But that has been decommissioned for several years. Our plane's NDB wasn't working anyway so we yanked it. We do have dual NAV/COM, ILS, DME but no GPS navigator. There is a Delta 40miles away with RNAV/VOR/DME/ILS and there is a another local airport about 30miles away with a VOR so probably a VOR based approach and of course a RNAV. So lets say I get my IR. I am up at my folks place (VOR/DME) and want to file an instrument plan back to my home base. In this case there are no navigation aids at the destination . Lets say the weather is perfect (CAVU). Will the system even allow me to file the IFR Flight Plan to my destination? If so what would that plan be like? I'm guessing I would be canceling it en-route, near the destination, but it seems the entire flight plan would not be allowed into the system. Or is there some provision in the IR rating that allows a departure from an airport you have the equipment for but a destination you are not equipped for? And if the answer is YES. Lets say its a fall day, ceilings are now 1800VC at my destination. Lets also say I am very proficient in flying IMC and icing is not an issue - can I still do this same flight plan to get thru the clouds before going VFR / canceling to land?
