I-10: Non-precision app (LOC BC), holds, and diversions, oh my

File a flight plan from KSBA to KSMX, via FLOUT5.RZS, with an alternate
destination of KSBP. File an altitude that is appropriate for the
direction of flight, and above the MEA (Minimum Enroute Altitude)
listed on the RZS transition of the SID.
Pick up the IFR clearance and depart from Santa Barbara (KSBA). Prior to
reaching RZS, request the LOC/DME BC-A into KSMX (Localizer DME Backcourse Alpha into Santa Maria) and
advise the controller of intention to execute the missed and divert to the filed alternate, KSBP. Upon
reaching RZS, fly the approach into KSMX to minimums and then execute the missed
approach as published, flying the hold at
A parallel or teardrop entry will be used (pilot's
choice) to become established in the hold, and then fly one
complete lap of the hold. Whilst in the hold, negotiate an IFR clearance to San Luis
Obispo (KSBP) via Morro Bay VOR (MQO).
Request the VOR-A full approach into KSBP. The approach
controller will specify the circling runway in the approach clearance.
Perform a full stop landing on the runway specified by the controller. Note the circling restrictions published on the chart, negating the option of circling north of the field.
Use the reference document in the 'related materials' section below for
assistance with the backcourse approach and the hold entry for the
missed approach. The VOR-A into KSBP is similar in nature to the
non-precision approach in the I-7 rating. Be sure to depart MQO
to the west to execute the course reversal (procedure turn).
