FAMILIARIZATION FLIGHTS (FAMS)
There is no need to report the numbers if clearance to break has
already been received.
After the IP executes the break, the aircraft is then slowed and the gear and flaps lowered as the

"Gear, three down-and-
"Brakes pumped firm."
"AOA is ___ knots."
"AOA is ____knots"
"Landing light On/ Off."

STUDENT: "My harness is locked, gear is down, landing Checklist complete, cleared to land 7
The student will state intentions at the abeam position.
STUDENT: "Tower, ROKT 204, abeam, full stop."
TOWER: "ROKT 204, Sherman Tower, winds 060 at 8 knots, RWY 7R, cleared to land."
STUDENT: "ROKT 204, cleared to land, 7R."
Often the landing gear has not yet been lowered as the abeam call is being made. If this is the
case, no reference to the landing gear occurs during this transmission. A separate UHF
transmission is required once the gear is lowered and the Landing Checklist is completed.
STUDENT: "Tower, ROKT 204, three down-and-locked."
