Instrument Takeoff, Climb, SIDs, and Arcing Procedures
Instrument takeoffs (ITOs) and departures are the tools that allow us to perform our
mission under nearly any weather conditions. The basic instrument skills used in the
ITO, combined with the navigation information available to you in a standard instrument
departure (SID) or a radar-vectored departure, allow you to begin your flight safely and
Understanding the relationship between basic instrument skills and navigation
information will be crucial to your performance in the Radio Instrument and Airways
Because efficient scan techniques are the key to accomplishing the maneuver, your
ability to perform well will depend on recognizing the basic flight maneuvers contained
within instrument departures and then using the appropriate scan for each.
When you have completed this lesson, you will be able to recall the step-by-step
procedure for the instrument takeoff and recognize the differences between pilot nav
and radar-vectored SIDs.
In this lesson we will be studying the procedure, technique, and scan for:
Flying the SID
Recall the SID procedures from your T-45A INav lessons.
Realize that T-45A scan techniques will differ slightly from those you learned in
T-34C because of differences in instrument location and aircraft performance.
