14. How are rate of descent and AOA controlled on the glidepath?
ANSWER: Rate of descent is controlled with power and AOA is controlled with nose attitude.
15. What information must the pilot repeat during any GCA approach?
ANSWER: Headings, altitudes, and altimeter settings until instructed otherwise.
SURVEILLANCE RADAR APPROACHES (ASRs)
16. Are recommended altitudes automatically provided in an ASR?
ANSWER: No, only if requested by the pilot.
17. What AOB is used in the pattern and why?
ANSWER: 30 degrees AOB. The controller needs to know your rate of turn for alignment purposes.
18. For a GCA, what information must the controller provide the pilot prior to final approach?
a. Type of approach (precision or surveillance)
Location of MAP (surveillance only)
d. Advisory to perform landing check (USN/USMC controllers only)
e. Missed approach instructions and lost comm instructions
Position information and heading changes as necessary to keep you on course
19. What are the lost comm time intervals for a PAR?
ANSWER: 60 seconds in pattern, 5 seconds on final.
20. What are the lost comm time intervals in an ASR?
ANSWER: 60 seconds in pattern, 15 seconds on final.
PROCEDURES/SCAN TECHNIQUES FOR PERFORMING MISSED APPROACH
21. When is a missed approach required?
a. MAP or DH reached without visual contact with runway environment
b. Safe landing not possible
Directed by tower
STALLS AND UNUSUAL ATTITUDES/STALLS ON INSTRUMENTS
22. What is the procedure when the wing drops off during a clean stall?
ANSWER: Add MRT and lower the nose to attain 20-21 units AOA and level wings.
23. What is the minimum altitude (AGL) to begin all stalls?
ANSWER: 10,000 ft.
24. What is the configuration for dirty stall entry?
ANSWER: Gear down, flaps/slats down, speed brakes out.
