INSTRUMENTS FLIGHT PLANNING
The top part of the jet log is specifically designed as a place to copy information regarding your
departure airfield, preflight airspeeds, and fuel data. It is completed as follows:
Figure 1-2 SE Jet Flight Log Top
DEP ELEV Elevation of the Departure Airfield.
CLNC DELIV - Clearance Delivery Frequency.
GND CONT Frequencies listed in IFR Enroute Supplement or Approach Plate.
TOWER Frequencies listed in IFR Enroute Supplement or Approach Plate.
ATIS Used for ATIS frequency.
WIND AT ALT - Forecast winds at flight planned altitude.
*TAS Your preflight TAS.
*LBS/HR, LBS/MIN - Your predicted fuel flow per hour/per minute.
TAS and LBS/HR, LBS/MIN are intentionally left blank and are discussed later.
While in the training command, unless otherwise noted, you will
always plan your events (i.e., TPs, OFTs, and Flights) based on
210 KIAS TAS for the T-34C and 240 KIAS for the T-6. Use the
fuel flow based on your cruise altitude.
The next four lines consist of space in which to copy your ATC clearance. You should develop a
shorthand method of quickly and accurately copying the clearance because of space/time
All valid ATC clearances consist of the following items:
Departure procedures or SID
Route of flight
Departure instructions, frequency, and IFF information
