T-6A 2B47 PROFILE DATA
E100. GENERAL INFORMATION
For each TP session, you will need to prepare the following:
One Jet Card for the Route of Flight
Three DD 175 Flight Plans:
A single-leg DD 175 for the first Route of Flight, with an approach to a full stop at the
An enroute delay DD 175 utilizing the first Route of Flight to reach the first
Destination where one practice approach will be conducted, followed immediately by
flying the Return Route of Flight to the second Destination for an approach followed by
a full stop. On this DD 175, there should only be one airport listed as a full stop
destination (in the "TO" block), and only one set of fuel and alternate data, which
should appear in the blocks provided for that purpose. (Note that this alternate data
should be that applicable to the Return Route of Flight, because the second Destination
is the only full stop destination on this DD 175.)
A stopover DD 175 utilizing the first Route of Flight to reach the first Destination,
followed by one approach to a full stop landing and 1+00 on deck. The second leg will
consist of the Return Route of Flight to the second Destination. The first part of this
DD 175 should be identical to the single-leg version. (Note that the second route of
flight must be followed by a second set of fuel and alternate data in parentheses, since
the blocks provided for that purpose will have already been used for the first leg.)
The winds for TP-6 ET are given in this workbook. The winds for TP-6 thru TP-8 will be
provided by your instructor in class. The enroute times to the Destination and Alternate for
the first leg should be obtained from your Jet Log. This data is given for the return leg, so you
will not have to calculate it for the purpose of completing the second leg on the stopover and
enroute delay DD 175's.
Your DD 175's and Jet Card will be collected during each TP session and graded by your
instructor, so ensure that they are complete and accurate. There should be no blanks in any
appropriate areas of either, save for the signature block on the DD 175. This means that the
bottom half of the reverse of the Jet Log needs to be filled out, for instance.
Please ensure that your Jet Log so that you may receive credit for it.
Enter TP begins with the MENTR9 departure out of NPA. Although this procedure requires a
TACAN in real life, at the beginning of TP-6 ET your instructor will show you how to set up the
GPS in the T-6 to act as a TACAN for the purpose of practicing the MENTR9. Don't get
wrapped up in the details of flying a TACAN departure with a GPS - except for the "GPS"
annunciation on your EHSI, the needles will behave exactly as if the NPA TACAN was a
VOR/DME or VORTAC during the departure. Note that it is not legal to use a GPS in place
of a TACAN in the real world, although it is a legal substitute for DME or ADF. Therefore,
you will never fly the MENTR9 in this aircraft, but you may see VOR-based departure
procedures at airfields other than NAS Pensacola, so do not disregard this training.
