CHAPTER EIGHT
INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES WORKBOOK
The acronym for remembering the content of this report is "DRAFT":
D Destination
R Route
A Altitude requested
F Fuel remaining (in hours plus minutes, not pounds)
T Time enroute
Example:
"MOBILE APPROACH, NAVY 6E432, MISSED APPROACH, REQUEST CLEARANCE TO
NAVY WHITING, VIA DIRECT PENSI INTERSECTION, FOUR THOUSAND, FUEL ONE
PLUS THREE ZERO, ESTIMATED TIME ENROUTE ZERO PLUS THREE FIVE."
Altitude Verification
At times controllers will ask pilots to verify the fact that they are at a particular altitude. The
phraseology used will be "VERIFY AT (altitude)." In climbing/descending situations,
controllers may ask pilots to "VERIFY ASSIGNED ALTITUDE AS (altitude)." Pilots should
confirm that they are at the altitude stated by the controller or that the assigned altitude is correct
as stated. If this is not the case, they should inform the controller of the actual altitude being
maintained or the different assigned altitude. Pilots should not take action to change their actual
altitude to that stated in the controller's verification request unless the controller specifically
authorizes a change.
Holding Reports
Pilots are required to report: (1) the time and altitude when reaching any assigned holding fix or
point to which cleared, and (2) when leaving any assigned holding fix or point. (Not required by
pilots of aircraft involved in instrument training at military terminal area facilities when radar
service is being provided.)
Vacating Altitude Report
Pilots are required to report to the ATC controlling agency when vacating an assigned altitude
for a newly assigned altitude. The report will include the altitude being vacated and the altitude
to which climbing/descending. It is not required to report reaching an assigned altitude or
passing altitudes unless requested.
