Best describe how when canceling an IFR flight plan, the flight crew operated under VFR in the terminal area under one of the following provisions:

      #1 At controlled airports, the flight crew requested and used radar-monitored traffic advisories provided by ATC when such advisories were available and wsa in direct communication with the appropriate ATC facility; or
      #2 At uncontrolled airports, the flight crew was in direct communication with an air/ground communication facility or agent of the Operator that provides airport traffic advisories and information that was pertinent to conditions on and around the landing surface during the terminal phase of flight.

REFERENCES: C077

NOTE: At controlled airports, the flight must be operated within Class B, C, or D airspace or within 10 NM of the destination airport. At uncontrolled airports, the flight must be operated within 10 NM of the destination airport or visual reference with the landing surface must be established and maintained throughout the approach and landing. Ceiling, visibililty, cloud separation and minimum altitude criteria must also be met.

At airports that did not have operating ATC facilities and it was not otherwise possible for the flight crew to obtain an IFR clearance to depart on an IFR flight plan, best describe how the flight took off and depart under VFR provided all the following conditions existed:

      #1 Reported weather visibility was specified in 91.155, but not lower than the visibility criteria specified in 135.205;
      #2 Reported ceiling was 1,000 feet or greater;
      #3 The flight crew maintained the basic cloud clearance as specified in 91.155 and had visual reference with the ground or visual contact with a landmark when referenced in a published procedure to be followed for the airport;
      #4 The ceiling and cloud clearance was such to allow the flight crew to maintain the minimum altitudes prescribed in 91.129, 91.130, or 91.131, as applicable for the airspace class in which the flight is operated;
      #5 The flight remained in VMC at all times while operating under VFR;
      #6 Unless operating under certain enroute provisions of 14 CFR Part 93, SFAR 50-2, and OpSpec B051, the flight crew obtained an IFR clearance as soon as practical after takeoff, but under no circumstances farther than 50 NMs from the departure airport; and
      #7 If there is a question that the weather conditions at the time of takeoff may not allow the flight crew sufficient seeing conditions, the flight crew had in its possession and used an authorized visual procedure which assured obstacle clearance or avoidance, the minimum altitudes under 91.119, or those prescribed in the authorized visual procedure, whichever were higher?
