TACAN and VOR Procedures
Suppose that you are in deteriorating weather conditions and need to fly into an
unfamiliar airfield. You must know approach procedures for your aircraft.
Your ability to make approaches, whether TACAN/VOR DME, or VOR, is essential for
cross-country flights where you will encounter a variety of navigational aids, weather
conditions, and airfield/runways. To fly a safe and successful approach, you must
understand and apply the appropriate approach procedures.
After completing this lesson, you will have refreshed your memory of station passage,
course intercepts and tracking, the penetration checklist, communication procedures
for approach, and the three types of navigational facilities and their accompanying
approaches that you will use to position your aircraft at the MDA.
In this lesson we will be studying:
Instrument indications for station passage
Procedure and techniques for TACAN/VOR tracking/intercepting
Procedure and techniques to correct for wind drift
Procedure and reasons for the penetration checklist
Procedure for communication with approach control
Navigational procedure and aircraft control for TACAN/VOR DME approaches
Navigational procedure and aircraft control for VOR
The basic flight maneuvers you have learned from the previous lessons can be
sequenced into an appropriate order for flying each approach.
