INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES WORKBOOK
Step 10: DETERMINE COMPULSORY REPORTING POINTS FOR NONRADAR
ENVIRONMENT AND MARK ACCORDINGLY; e.g., FIXES ARE COMPULSORY
REPORTING POINTS UNDER THE FOLLOWING CIRCUMSTANCES:
Both ends of a direct route
Solid Triangle at a Fix
Step 11: COMPUTE GROUND SPEED (GS) USING WIND SIDE OF CR-2, 3, 4, OR 5.
Using computed GS for the climb, compute the time to first fix.
Three possibilities concerning your point of level-off exist: Fill in the blanks below
during the class lecture problem.
Crossing the fix at the same point and time as reaching cruise; altitude.
Reaching cruise altitude prior to the fix;
Reaching cruise altitude after crossing the first fix
In most practice problems, 2c is the case. This is referred to as a split leg; part of a
leg is climb and part is cruising. Fuel flow, air speed, ground speed, distance, and
time for climb and cruise must be computed for this leg.
Step 12: COMPUTE ETE AND LEG FUEL FOR EACH LEG USING THE COMPUTATION
SIDE OF THE CR-2, 3, 4, OR 5.
Step 13: CALCULATE EFR FOR EACH LEG AND COMPUTER TOTAL DISTANCE, ETE
AND FUEL FOR DEST AND ALT.
Step 14: COMPLETE "ALTERNATE, ROUTE, ALT, TIME, AND FUEL" LINE OF THE
Step 15: COMPLETE T-34C FUEL PLAN USING FLIGHT LOG INFORMATION.
