into account the 7° angle of bank with the gear down, as well as the various airspeeds, which
would be flown with flaps at different positions.
11. When the 2F101 transitions to a gear down configuration, it will then fly 15 units angle of
attack, and the airspeed cannot be changed.
12. The 2F101 is programmed so that a reduction of power is associated with descents, and
increases in power are associated with increases in airspeed. A request for a simultaneous
descent and increase in airspeed (such as descending out of holding) usually results in a long
delay in reaching the requested airspeed.
13. If the speedbrakes are closed during a descent, the 2F101 will frequently leveloff as the
speedbrakes close, despite a different requested level-off altitude.
14. At times, the 2F101 will not perform a deceleration and transition to the landing
configuration while in a descent. The student should request the pilot "slow to gear speed"
without regard for this trainer shortcoming, and the instructor will comply with the request as
soon as possible thereafter.
T-2C PROCEDURES AND CHECKLISTS VS. THE SIMULATOR
In some respects, the 2F101 is not well suited to prepare the student for instructional flights in
the T-2C aircraft. For example, the SNFO flies in the aft cockpit of the T-2C, but the cockpit of
the 2F101 represents the front cockpit. As a result of this deficiency, certain deviations from
T-2C procedures are necessary during 2F101 RI events. Students will be thoroughly briefed on
all these problems during curriculum lectures.
NAVIGATION DURING RI EVENTS
During 2F101 RI events, the student will:
1. Request headings, altitudes, airspeeds, and configuration changes to comply with the flight
plan, ATC clearances, and prescribed instrument maneuvers, such as holding, instrument
2. Manage all navigation equipment, including the CDI. OUI shall dial in the appropriate
course, announce it to the pilot, and advise which radial to fly. This will preclude the OUI from
having to update headings when flying direct to a NAVAID: "270 in the CDI, fly the 090 radial
3. Perform all the turnpoint procedures previously taught in CTW-6 cross-country instrument
navigation training (2-Minute-Prior, Mark-On-Top, and Wings-Level calculations and jet log
entries). Except for turn requests and reports of NAVAID frequency changes, NO crew
communications associated with these procedures are performed.
