If you want to learn more about a particular topic, it pays to go to the source. Jeppesen is hosting five webinars over the next several months focused on specific aspects of instrument flying and instrument charts.
The training and charting company is calling the series “Chart Clinic Confidential.” Participants will be guided through an hour-long discussion on airport diagrams, en route charts, departure procedures, arrival procedures, and approaches. Each webinar will be hosted by a commercial pilot or flight instructor who works directly in Jeppesen’s charting offices. That means you’ll be learning directly from a staff member who creates or manages paper or digital charts.
Each of the five webinars is free. Advanced registration is required.
Flight Training Editor Ian J. Twombly joined AOPA in 2003 and is an instrument flight instructor.

No one likes to blow a radio exchange with ATC, but it's not possible to know exactly when a handoff from one center sector to another, or from a center to approach, is going to happen.
