If we abort on takeoff, we will stop the aircraft on the remaining runway
centerline by lowering the nosewheel, using max beta and smoothly
increase pressure on the brake pedals.
If we depart the runway, we will continue our abort with the appropriate
NATOPS procedures. After aircraft evacuation we will meet well clear of
If we abort shortly after liftoff, we will turn downwind and climb to
pattern low key, notifying Tower of our intentions to execute a pattern
Divert Fields. The divert fields for today's mission are _____________.
Minimum and Emergency Fuel

We will declare an emergency when we have reached a fuel state that will result in
our landing with less than acceptable fuel quantity. Emergency fuel is considered an
emergency; ATC will provide preferential assistance.
Execution of the waveoff is mandatory for all students when directed by RDO,
Tower, Wheels Watch, or the IP. Waveoffs will be conducted per local procedures.
Homefield waveoff per local course rules.
OLF waveoff procedurally similar except maintain safe separation from other
aircraft, climb to pattern altitude and turn downwind when you have proper interval
per local procedures.
Radio Failure/ICS Failure. A confirmed radio failure will be handled per the procedures
outlined in the FWOP/Course Rules and sound judgment on the part of the pilot in command. If
VFR, remain VFR and do not proceed into questionable or marginal VFR weather. Discuss ICS
