TEARDROP APPROACH
Reference: AIM, Chapter 5; NIFM, Chapter 20.
1.
Amplification ­ A Teardrop approach makes use of an outbound to inbound radial intercept
maneuver to reverse course and establish the aircraft inbound on the intermediate and final approach
course. Do not exceed the "Remain Within" distance.
2.
Procedure ­ The following procedures assume clearance for the ROBINS AFB VOR
RWY 15 approach (Figure 6­49) has been received and you are proceeding to the IAF.
a.
At the IAF, indicated by station passage, execute the 6 Ts:
i.
TIME ­ Not required; time of commencing the approach is not reported to the
controlling agency.
ii.
TURN ­ Turn in the shortest direction to parallel the outbound course (295º).
iii.
TIME ­ Start timing for three minutes outbound when wings level or abeam the
station, whichever occurs last.
NOTE
In strong winds or at indicated speeds greater than 120 knots, you
may have to adjust outbound timing to comply with any "remain
within distance" associated with the approach. Normally, a three
minute timing outbound will be sufficient.
iv.
TRANSITION ­ Transition to slow cruise. If a descent is necessary at the
IAF, then leave the power at 300 ft­lbs, lower the nose, and descend at 120
knots.
NOTE
Comply with any additional altitude restrictions imposed by ATC.
v.
TWIST
(a)
Set the outbound course (295º) in the IND­350.
(b)
Use "Over­the­Station Intercept" Procedures to establish the aircraft on
course outbound.
(c)
Attempt to be established on course within one minute.
vi
TALK ­ give the appropriate voice report if required.
