Release and press ENTR.The Avidyne IFD does not have this function.The MAP directory containsAUDIO, UTIL, SETUP, SYST, ALERTFPL, INFO, ROUTE, WPT, NRSTSVS, MAP, CHARTTo invert a flight planIn the FMS directory, select your flight plan, press the Invert LSKIn the FMS directory, creat a 'New Route' and enter waypoints backward of your original flight planIn the MAP directory, select Chart of the active flight plan, press the Invert LSK.To store a current flight planSelect 'Current Route' under the Route tab of the FMS directory and press Copy LSKSelect 'New Route' under the Route tab of the FMS directory and press the Copy LSKIn the FPL tab of the FMS directory, press the PROC dedicated key and select 'Copy Flight Plan'To delete a flight planIn the FPL tab of the FMS directory, press the CLR dedicated key, then ENTRIn the Route tab of the FMS directory, highlight the respective flight plan and press CLR dedicated key, then ENTRIn the FPL tab of the FMS directory, press the CLR dedicated key, then ENTRTo build a random hold,In the FPL tab of the FMS directory, select the waypoint where the hold will occur, press PROC and select 'Hold at Waypoint'.In the FPL tab of the FMS directory, select the next 'to' waypoint, press PROC and select 'Hold at Waypoint'.In the FPL tab of the FMS directory, place the data cursor before or after the waypoint where the hold is to occur, press ENTR. The way point insertion will pop up. Use the touch-screen or multi-function knob to select 'HOLD AT --'.To adjust the hold position,In the FPL tab, close the Map and use the flight plan waypoint listing. Turn the inner multi-function knob which will alternate between left / right. Press ENTR to highlight left or right, ENTR again to accept.In the FPL tab, double tap the depicted hold and the hold will flash white and alternate left / right. Press ENTR to highlight left or right, ENTR again to accept.In the FPL tab, press and drag the hold to the new position and release. Press ENTR to accept the new position.The initial leg into a hold isWhiteMagentaMagenta / WhiteTo exit a hold,Press the FMS rocker to display the FPL tab. Press 'Exit Hold' LSK.Proceed out of the hold to the next waypoint. The IFD will recognize the change and proceed onto the GPS course.Press the MAP rocker to display the master map page. Under the Data tab, press 'Exit Hold', the ENTR.A holding pattern can be placed on any waypoint that is defined as a point in space.TrueFalseAll LPV approaches are precision approaches.TrueFalseIt is the responsibility of the Pilot-In-Command to determine if an LPV approach is precision or non-precision based on approach plate criteria.TrueFalseIFD 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.TrueFalseTo select an approach at the destination airport,Press the NRST dedicated key and select an approach from the list presented.Double tap the airport waypoint and an approach list will pop up.

The IFD is in AI mode.Press the Activate Approach LSK.If, while on a non-precision approach, the IFD does not switch from GPS to VLOC, the pilot mustExecute missed approach. The IFD has lost signal strength.Turn the CDI/VLOC knob to VLOC.Press the Activate Approach LSK.To bypass a procedure turn on an approach, the pilot-in-command has toactivate 'vectors to final' LSKactivate the leg following the procedure turnproceed direct to a waypoint after the procedure turnTo fly vectors to final on an ILS approach, the pilot has toselect Vectors transition once the approach has been selected and then select VTF block in the flight plan.Do nothing once the approach has been selected. The IFD's AI will recognize the vectoringPress ENTR twice once the approach has been selected and the IFD's AI will take over.To fly a 'missed approach' on the IFD, the pilotmust press the 'missed approach' LSKbegin the missed approach as shown on the approach plate and the IFD will sequence th missed approach accordingly.must press the Direct To key.To quick-tune the emergency frequency 121.5Touch the stand-by frequency and enter 121.5Press frequency swap button for 3 secondsPress FREQ button and select 121.5If the IFD determines that there is a stuck mike,communication frequency will flash magenta and the transmitter will be disabled until the stuck mike condition is fixed.communication and navigation frequency bank will gray out and the transmitter will be disabled until the stuck mike condition is fixed.a 'stuck mike' blue advisory message will be displayed and the transmitter will be disabled until the stuck mike condition is fixed.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:the IFD will display a red, premature descent alert (PDA).the IFD will display an 'Execute Missed Approach' (EMA)the IFD map screen will flash red indicating terrain imminent.An Excessive Descent Rate (EDR) alert is triggered at:- 750 fpm- 1000 fpm- 1600 fpmTraffic 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?Traffic displayed on the IFD is an advisory, radar return and may not actually be there.Traffic displayed on the IFD represents horizontal location only and does not depict the actual flight level of the aircraft.'See and Avoid' does not mean 'watch the box'.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.270 degrees090 degreesIt is automaticIf 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.15, 4560, 12010, 30If a 'Gap in Route' is generated in a flight plan, the pilot mustbe prepared to hold.
