Every successful flight depends on thorough planning prior to flight. Preflight planning
includes: Flight Logs for fuel planning, DD-175's for ATC coordination, knowledge of FLIP,
NOTAMS, and forecasted weather as well as a thorough knowledge of flight procedures. This
section will cover the basic preflight planning and flight procedures for Instrument Navigation
