A holding pattern can be placed on any waypoint that is defined as a point in space.
All LPV approaches are precision approaches.
It is the responsibility of the Pilot-In-Command to determine if an LPV approach is precision or non-precision based on approach plate criteria.
IFD navigation modes and their corresponding CDI deflections are:
- (Enroute) 2.0 nm full scale CDI deflection;
- (Terminal) 1.0 nm full scale CDI deflection;
- (Approach) 0.3 nm full scale CDI deflection.
To select an approach at the destination airport,
The nav source state (GPS / VLOC) colors for active and standby respectively are:
Where is information for Communications, Approaches, and Weather found for an airport?
Where is air data, trip planners, RAIM, and trip statistics found?
You can use the CLR key to delete a procedure turn from an approach.
If you have more than one destination airport in your flight plan, pressing the PROC key will
When executing a procedure turn during a non-precision approach, the pilot-in-command should

If the IFD determines that there is a stuck mike,
If a pilot descends below a glideslope on a precision approach or below a generated descent path on a non-precision approach when within 1-5 nm from a runway:
An Excessive Descent Rate (EDR) alert is triggered at:
Traffic displayed on the IFD is receiving its information from the LYNX transponder. It is still the responsibility of the PIC to see and avoid all traffic even though it is displayed on the IFD. Why?
A hold pattern leg has a field for the inbound course to the hold waypoint. The hold pattern turns left or right as specified in the hold pattern at the hold waypoint. If ATC issues a 'Hold east of <waypoint>, a hold course of _____ should be entered into the hold leg.
If flying a defined flight plan, the IFD will provide a message about an impending turn that includes the upcoming desired track and a _______ second countdown; _____ seconds for a turn greater than 120 degrees.
If a 'Gap in Route' is generated in a flight plan, the pilot must
A green arc will form ahead of the 'ownship' display indicating what?
To offset a routing, the pilot must
METARS for a given airport can be accessed

If on the departure leg of a flight plan an emergency develops and you must return to the field, the recommended technique is to
The IFD receives Datalink Weather overlayed on the map screen. When no Datalink coverage is available, the IFD shows
Any terrain within a 10 nm radius of the 'ownship' and betwee 100 ft and 1000 ft below the aircraft altitude will generate
Obstacles inside a 1.5 nm radius of the aircraft position whose top is between 100 ft. below to anything above the aircraft altitude will generate

Commonly used communication frequencies can be saved in COM Presets. To access this register, the pilot must
Timers and Calculators are locasted:
Martinaire pilots are forbidden from creating User Profiles in Avidyne units.
WAAS system regions are randomly shut-down for testing without NOTAM notification. If this occurs, the IFD will display a warning and the pilot must use an alternate means to navigate.
If no GPS leg is active or if no GPS lock, the nav mode will be displayed in
LPV approaches are always precision approaches.
Active Nav Source states are colored ________ while armed is ________.
If GPS or OBS are not the active Nav state (annunciated in green), then pushing the Nav Source knob will have no effect.
OBS can be activated inside the Final Approach Fix (FAF).

All flight planning, including alternates, should be stored in the Avidyne IFD on the ground and before any engine start. Programming the Avidyne in the air, apart from instrument approaches and reroutes, is a very dangerous precedent.
While flying vectors toward an approach, the pilot still has to:
