NOTE: Heading/distance figures for all divert airfields are

Sg 8, fr 2
It is not necessary to discuss each divert airfield in detail, but
do discuss at least one airfield to identify the important points.
The students may study the remaining airfields on their own.
You may also want to make additional points gained from your
experience with these airfields.
Emphasize that some divert fields may not have the proper
facilities for a particular situation. For instance, Harlingen,
Laredo, and Laughlin airports have no arresting gear. In the
event of a total hydraulic failure, these fields would be
inappropriate. NALF Orange Grove does not have ILS or
approach lighting and, therefore, may not be appropriate under
low visibility conditions.
