You’re headed from Redding (KRDD) to Arcata (KACV), California for a business meeting. KRDD is marginal VFR, but the TAFs are calling for LIFR all along the Northern California coast so you’ll need to be on your game for the arrival. Your Cessna 172 is full of fuel and you’re the only one on board, just you and your briefcase.
ATC has routed you northwest of your original route for traffic so you’re approaching KACV from the west and are presently nine miles from the airport. The ATIS confirms that the weather has arrived and it’s near minimums at Arcata.
Brief and choose your approach into KACV before you contact ATC. Remember, this mission is a scenario. The instructor will be there for you, but more as a mentor. You’ve got all the information you need for this trip and everything is your call. It’s time to request your approach with Seattle Center.
