JOINT ADVANCED MULTI-ENGINE T-44A
CHAPTER 4. RADIO INSTRUMENTS STAGE (RI)
400.
Introduction. Welcome to instrument flying! This section will provide a base of instrument flight
information students can use to study from. It establishes guidance as to what will be emphasized during
this stage of the advanced maritime syllabus. Students are expected to be familiar with the procedures,
techniques, and information included. Remember, this is not a source document and study should not be
limited to the FTI alone. Information contained in this FTI must be supplemented by information from
other resources, some of which are listed below. This stage of training requires a high degree of motivation
and professional dedication. You will acquire the confidence and precision necessary to fly military
aircraft in a dynamic instrument environment. Emphasis will be placed on situational awareness, pilot-in-
command decision-making, and crew coordination. Successful completion will result in certification as a
standard instrument rated pilot.
NOTE: Students are expected to be thoroughly familiar with all brief and discuss items for events, and will be held
responsible for anything in the FAR Part 91, AIM, OPNAV 3710.7, FTI, and NATOPS pertaining to the brief/discuss
items.

B. Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPs).
The TERPs primary purpose is to provide safe terminal procedures for aircraft operating to and from
military and civil airports. The main considerations include criteria for obstacle clearance,
descent/climb gradients, and landing minimums. TERPS criteria applies to the design of instrument
approach procedures (IAPs) at any location over which a United States agency exercises jurisdiction.
Outside of the United States, IAPs may not have been designed by a US agency. However, if the IAP
is published in FLIP, it has been reviewed by an appropriate US agency, meets US TERPs criteria (or
its equivalent) and is approved for use. The flight procedures prescribed for instrument approaches are
predicated upon the specifications stated in TERPs and, if used, should keep the aircraft within the
allocated airspace.
Positive Course Guidance. Positive course guidance is a continuous display of navigational data
enabling the aircraft to be flown along a specific course line. When not on radar vectors, an underlying
principle implicit in instrument procedures in assuring vertical and lateral obstacle clearance is positive
