INSTRUMENTS FLIGHT PLANNING
LIGHTING - Use your IFR Enroute Supplement and Approach Plates to paint an
easily discernable picture of the lighting facilities available. Convert codes from your
publications into plain English and/or diagrams.
FUEL/JASU/LOX - Regard these as questions concerning the availability of these
items. You may use J-4, J-5, J8 and Jet A fuel for the T-34C and J-4, J-5, J-8, Jet A,
A-1 and Jet B for the T-6. The JASU unit for the T-34C and the T-6A is the NC-5 or
NC-8A at USN and USMC bases. The T-34C utilizes LPOX or LHOX. The T-6A
has its own Onboard Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS).
ATIS - This refers to whether or not the field has a UHF ADF/NDB. Most USN and
USMC Air Stations possess this capability. In this space, the appropriate ATIS
frequency is recommended.
METRO - The appropriate METRO frequency is recommended.
RAPCON - The approach control frequencies for your destination listed on the front
of your jet log, and the approach control frequencies at your alternate.
PAR MINS - The PAR and associated weather minimums for the predicted runway.
These are adjusted, if necessary, to conform to single-piloted absolute minimums.
TAC MINS - The published TACAN and weather minimums for your predicted
ARR GEAR - As in the LIGHTING section, use your publications to determine
exactly what is available and write it down in clear and understandable
PUBS, NOTAMS, FUEL PACKET, FLASHLIGHT, WALLET, ETC. - Simply
place check marks in these blocks if you are satisfied that you have everything you
need for your particular flight.
