SHUTTLE DESCENT
1.
Amplification ­ A shuttle descent is the procedure used in holding to position your
aircraft at a lower altitude. Descents in holding are normally initiated by ATC. If several aircraft
are in holding at the same fix, they will be placed in "stack" with altitude separation (usually 1000
feet). Shuttles will be used to descend each aircraft to the next lower stack altitude after the
bottom aircraft in the stack has commenced his approach.
2.
Procedure
a.
Report leaving current altitude for assigned altitude.
b.
Reduce power to 300 ft­lbs.
c.
Lower the nose to maintain 120 knots.
d.
Retrim.
To level off:
e.
Twenty-five feet prior to leveloff altitude, begin the transition by resetting power to
450­500 ft­lbs.
f.
Raise the nose to the slow cruise attitude.
g.
Retrim.
3.
Common Errors
a.
Fixating on altitude, thereby failing to maintain AOB in the Standard­Rate Turns.
b.
Neglecting timing and/or wind corrections. You must continue flying the pattern
while in the descent.
NOTE
Wind corrections at one altitude may not work at a lower altitude.
Heading and timing adjustments may be required. If these
adjustments do not work, fly a complete no­wind orbit again to
determine the new winds.

TACAN POINT­TO­POINT NAVIGATION
Reference: NIFM Part V, "Technique of Navigating Point­to­Point."
1.
Amplification ­ Point­to­Point Navigation is a procedure used to fly from one TACAN fix
to another using a direct track. When an aircraft approaches a terminal area, Air Traffic Control
normally clears it to a holding fix or an Initial Approach Fix. If cleared direct to the fix, the pilot
may be radar vectored or employ Point­to­Point Navigation.
