T-34C INSTRUMENTS
CHAPTER SIX
aircraft during the climb to altitude, into airspeed on the way down, reducing time to destination.
Descend using cruise power by lowering the nose to establish a comfortable but expeditious rate
of descent (1000­4000 FPM). Do not exceed 250 KIAS (195 KIAS in turbulent air).
2.
Procedure
a.
Report leaving current altitude for assigned altitude.
b.
Lower the nose and trim as the aircraft accelerates.
c.
Adjust the nose attitude for the desired rate of descent (1000 ­ 4000 FPM).
1000 feet prior to assigned altitude:
d.
Adjust the nose attitude for a 500 FPM to 1500 FPM rate of descent and retrim as
the aircraft decelerates.
50 feet prior to assigned altitude:
e.
Raise the nose toward the level flight attitude.
f.
Recheck power at cruise setting.
g.
Retrim for straight and level flight as the airspeed bleeds off.

TERMINAL DESCENT
1.
Amplification ­ A terminal descent is a procedure used to descend to a lower altitude
when you are in contact with the destination approach controller and in the terminal phase of your
flight. A terminal descent provides a slower rate of descent than the enroute descent. When in
the terminal phase of flight, you are more likely to make a relatively short descent and thus a
slower rate of descent is appropriate.
2.
Procedure
a.
Report leaving current altitude for assigned altitude.
b.
Reduce power to 300 ft­lbs.
c.
Lower the nose to maintain cruise airspeed.
d.
Trim.
