  IFR Departure Routes:

  Dest     Route ID     Route
  ACK     A     LOGANx RADAR VECTORS LFV DIRECT
  EWB     E     LOGANx RADAR VECTORS DIRECT
  HYA     H     LOGANx RADAR VECTORS DRUNK V141 GAILS DIRECT
  MVY     M     LOGANx RADAR VECTORS FREDO MVY017 DIRECT

should us VFR guys expect these instructions on contacting ATC, or should we have these available while inflight? and as for some of those things, like the light house, those are visual aides, correct? what are we going to do about those?

Cape Air pilots know, per their procedures, that they should be filing the requested Coded Arrival Route in their flight plan.  Cape Air Pilots will, of course, know these procedures, and will expect a Coded Arrival Clearance from ATC.  Note that these procedures are for Cape Air flights.

However,

Even if you are not a vKAP pilot, if you request them in your flight plan or verbally, we will do our best to accommodate you (we're all here to have fun and learn, aren't we). You will need to file it or request it though. We won't assign these procedures otherwise.

Sometimes (for traffic managment purposes) we may not issue you these specific procedures. It all depends on the traffic at the current time. But most times, it won't be a problem.

Hi Sam,

No. They are not required for entry into the Boston Bravo airspace. However, knowing them might get you in quicker, especially if it is busy.
