picking up ifr in the air

For those interested in learning about the available choices for obtaining an IFR clearance while airborne, this piece will examine the many approaches.

Securing an IFR clearance while in flight can be done in two ways: radioing the pertinent ARTCC on their proper frequency and requesting one directly, or making contact with the local Flight Service Station for assistance. Whichever approach is taken, your aircraft must be outfitted with the necessary radio apparatus and you must be familiar with the processes needed to obtain the clearance. Requesting clearance from either source usually results in a prompt response.

For pilots looking to acquire an IFR clearance, tuning in to the ATIS frequency provides them with a useful resource. The Automatic Terminal Information Service offers a continuous broadcast of updated information concerning current weather conditions, operating runway, and more. Within the broadcast, pilots can expect to hear a recorded message which contains the clearance limit, altitude assignment, and transponder code; all being reviewed and refreshed whenever situations or the runway in use alters.

In full flight, the pilot can tune in to the ATIS broadcast and then reach out to the ground control frequency and solicit their IFR clearance. Promptly, the tower will bestow this permission.

Pilots on their way to an airport have the opportunity to acquire an IFR clearance via an Approach Control frequency. This facility works by overseeing both incoming and departing flights, and gives rise to their secure clearance as they come around 10-20 miles away from the landing destination. The Approach Control system is monitored by the pilot when navigating and while on the last legs of their approach to the desired airport.

From the ground, the pilot can request an IFR clearance from the Air Traffic Control tower, followed by granting of the same by the tower.

When it comes to obtaining an IFR clearance mid-flight, there are several key points that must be adhered to. It is essential to make sure your aircraft contains the right radio communication infrastructure, and that you’re aware of the airspace parameters in which you are currently situated. Additionally, it is imperative to maintain an up-to-date map of the area and ensure you observe the prescribed speed and altitude parameters. Above all else, you must always ensure you retain control of the aircraft during this important procedure.
