    At least you have a visual indication and you wouldn't have to listen to the continuous Morse code. Must have been a huge improvement!

    Not only can I identify it I have used one that was placarded “not for navigation” while rocking it out in the flight levels flying a three hole Boeing. Good times.

    Looks like some variant of a grandfather clock. Or something my grandpa would have used, anyway.

    Also, why does the knob say "SBO"? And if it's a King, where's the Queen?

    The instrument that helped to teach most pilots the incorrect way to use a VOR for navigation. Helped to perpetuate the "Reverse Sensing" myth. :D

    It's the thing you pretend to follow for the examiner after doing finger gymnastics on it to BS a hold entry type while glancing at your Foreflight approach plate to see where you actually are in order to figure out how you're actually supposed to fly it

    ...because adulting is hard. ;)

    If you think flying a VOR or LOC approach is difficult, or flying w/o moving map, you got shortchanged on your training.

    I did my whole Instrument rating with a single VOR/GS. I also fly in IMC with that single VOR/GS, single pilot :eek:. I'd just like better gyros (the spinny kind, not the sandwich kind), mine suck.

    I’ve also had a few interviews where the sim session had no moving map, no GPS and the autopilot was more of a trap then a help.

    I agree, learning with a moving map is like sending a kid to grade school with a calculator, but I’m also the odd ball that thinks a 172 is a horrible PPL trainer vs a 7AC, C120, glider or something.

    What's "Window coverings for owners with no pride in ownership" Alex? :D I resemble that remark btw.

    I carry three of those to wrap around my windshield during long XC, with their FAA regulation "see and avoid" tank slit cutouts of course (I call them Piper comanche/C-182 sights). My Century II does the flying, I do the snoozing, ATC does the clearing! :D

    DPE also used one during my PPL checkride way back in the day. No foggles no problem!

    I flew in 4 different aircraft before my first flight in one with a battery, generator, and lights. It also had a SUPERHOMER with 3 crystals.

    [​IMG]
    The three crystals were 'universal tower', 'universal ground', and 'universal FSS'. You tuned the appropriate navigation VOR and transmitted in the blind, listening to the other frequency. For towers, when close enough that you were no longer navigating, you called for a long count, they counted from 1 to 10, then back down, while you cranked the receiver fo find them. Then normal two way radio took place. You did not fly Superhomers into busy airports. Note that there is no TO FROM indicator on that radio!


    We sold that boat anchor, and replaced it with a very advanced 1 1/2, solid state radio. It could either nav or comm, switch to flip between the two. Flying into control tower airports with associated VOR's, you advised the tower "listening on the VOR" and called on the tower frequency. The same for Flight Service en route, call on the FSS freq. and listen on the VOR. I flew VOR and LOC approaches with that plane and radio. Once you were finished using the nav function, you went duplex on the single frequency you transmitted on.

    The flip flop switch took quite a beating, but the radio was completely reliable, and easy to tune, plus, it tuned all the frequencies.

    That was the radio for my PPL check ride.
