Last week, AVweb asked how many of you regularly use WAAS approaches.

Apparently, the majority of you don't use them.  53% of respondents reported that their aircraft aren't equipped for WAAS, while another 17% of respondents aren't instrument-rated (and aren't themselves qualified for a WAAS approach).

Of the remaining 30%, most (22% of the total number of respondents) said they only use WAAS approaches infrequently or haven't used them since training.

Only 5% of our respondents claimed to use WAAS approaches frequently.


This week, AVweb wants to know if and how you're participating in tsunami relief efforts.
