Taking a Navajo into KORD (O'Hare)

Postby Punky » Mon Apr 12, 2010 11:34 am

Hey everyone.
So in a few Sundays I'm to fly into O'Hare is a little 'ol Navajo.
I do all single pilot corporate IFR and have no reservation about going into an airport like Pearson (Toronto YYZ)... but let's face it - nothing is like O'Hare.

Can anyone offer any advice about KORD?
What should I aim for in terms of a GA FBO?
Is there a typical runway they would use for small GA aircraft?
This is an aircraft with only standard equipment on board, so no RNAV operations, but I do have a Garmin 696 with Safe Taxi on it.

Any feedback people can offer would be great.

when I go into a strange new place I ask for progressive instructions, but that is for a class D.
Good Luck
I'm sure they will be helpfull as they don't want to fill out a report on what happened on their shift.

If you have a choice, go to Midway (MDW). Assuming that's not an option, you have no choice other than Signature, as they're the only FBO. They're between 27L and 22R on the East end of the field. I'd presume they'd put you on one of the runways in the Northeast corner depending on the wind. Check out the airnav page for more info.
