CHAPTER 3
AIR FORCE T-38 TRACK INTERMEDIATE
Flying en route to your first destination, about 100 miles out, you want to do the "WHOLDS"
check:
W Check the weather, PMSV, FSS, ATIS.
H Is there any applicable holding? Are we planning to do any holding? How will I enter?
O Obtain a clearance when I talk to the destination Approach Controller; how will I tell him
what I want?
L Letdown plate review, brief up the first approach into the terminal area (NMAILMAN
check).
D Descent check, if applicable.
S Compute Speed and Configuration, (in T-34, this will always be BAC.)
When briefing an approach always do the "NMAILMAN" check:
N Check for applicable NAVAIDs, are my NAVAIDs compatible with the entire approach
from IAF to missed approach procedure?
M Minimums, check for all minimums, minimum weather to fly the approach, Minimum
Sector Altitude, Emergency Safe, at or above altitudes, as well as MDA/DH for the
approach you are flying.
A Altimeter - check the altimeter setting, did you reset to local altimeter after descending
below FL180 (where the altimeter setting is always 29.92)?
I  What is the inbound course? Can I dial it in right now if I am getting radar vectors or I
am on the arc?
L Letdown review/Lost Comm. Again review the flow of the approach plate, altitudes,
FAF, MAP, etc. How will the runway look when I break out of the weather? Is this a
backup to a GCA? What will I do if communications are lost?
M Review Missed Approach Procedure; do I have to coordinate for alternate Missed
Approach Procedure if I do not have compatible NAVAIDs?
A Recheck the altimeter setting, your life depends on it.
N Next approach, am I doing one? Do I have to coordinate with approach control for
"climbout instructions" for the next approach I want? (Climbout is different from missed
approach; missed approach is flown when you fly an approach with the intent to land and
did not break out of the weather; climbout is meant to sequence you back into the radar
pattern for more approach work and starts at departure end vice the Missed Approach
Point (MAP).
When executing a Localizer Approach, do a "LIDS" check:
L Dial in the localizer frequency, make sure you are toggled to VOR on the toggle switch.
I  Inbound course, dial it in.
D DME, is it a separate channel for this localizer? (Like South Field, usually these are Y
channels.)
S Speed and configuration (this will always be BAC in the T-34).
Refer to AFM 11-217 Instrument Flight Procedures and other Air Force IPs for more memory
aids and techniques commonly used in the Air Force.
