INSTRUMENT TAKEOFF AND CLIMB WITH SID / INSTRUMENT TAKEOFF PROCEDURES
1. What instruments do you need in your scan at this point?
ANSWER: ADI display ball, AOA, and airspeed trend indicator.
2. At what point in the ITO do you retract the flaps/slats?
ANSWER: When wings are level at a minimum of 140 KIAS, 300 ft AGL and safely airborne.
3. What is the maximum airspeed below 10,000 ft?
ANSWER: 250 KIAS.
4. What indications are required before you can raise the gear?
ANSWER: Positive rate of climb on VSI and altitude display, safely airborne, and a minimum of
100 ft AGL.
STANDARD INSTRUMENT DEPARTURES
5. What are the two basic types of SIDs?
ANSWER: Pilot nav and vector.
6. During a radar-vector departure, where do your instructions originate?
ANSWER: ATC controller (Departure control).
7. What is the primary difference between a pilot nav and a vector SID?
ANSWER: The pilot is responsible for following the published instructions in a pilot nav and following
the controllers instructions for a vector SID.
8. What information must the pilot repeat during instrument flight?
ANSWER: Headings, altitudes, and altimeter settings, and must acknowledge all radio calls.
9. How do you determine the lead point to intercept an arc from a radial?
ANSWER: 1 percent of ground speed = DME lead.
10. How do you determine the number of radials of lead required to intercept a radial from an arc?
ANSWER: 60 divided by DME of arc, multiplied by 1 percent of ground speed = number of lead
11. Leads to arcs/radials are based on what rate of turn?
ANSWER: One-half standard rate.
GCA PROCEDURES/PRECISION RADAR APPROACHES (PARs)
12. What is the primary difference between a PAR and an ASR?
ANSWER: You will be provided with glidepath information on a PAR.
13. What should your AOB be in the GCA pattern?
ANSWER: 30 degrees AOB in the initial pattern, 20 degrees AOB when dirty, and no more than
10 degrees AOB on final.
