Hi Guys,

Just confused about a question in Set EIGHT Question 3 (page 6.13)

Answer given in the back of the book is a.

I'm just wondering why the most correct answer is not b.

I would have thought that seeing you haven't entered class C airspace and the planned route takes you into a very busy airport that it would be better to turn around and make an instrument approach back at Cowra

Thanks for your post.

You are not in Class C airspace but you are IFR in Class E and a clearance has been issued and acknowledged. Loss of communication in controlled airspace when in IMC is outlined in ERSA Emergency Page 3 Para 1.5.4 and 1.5.5. That is the answer the examiner would expect.

All the best with your study.
