BASIC INSTRUMENT PROCEDURES
If Airspeed is below 120 Knots:
If, upon the command from the IP or SI to "RECOVER:" or at any point during a nose high
unusual attitude, the airspeed is below 120 KIAS, the student will ask the IP/SI "BELOW 120
KNOTS. DO YOU HAVE CONTROL?" If the answer is "YES", no Out-Of-Control Flight
procedures are expected. If the answer is "NO", the student will initiate the Out-of-Control
Flight procedures below. To affect an Out-Of- Control Flight recovery, the student will recite
the BOLD FACE procedures below verbatim (word-for-word).
"FLIGHT CONTROLS - VISUALLY CHECK NEUTRAL."
"TRIM 2 TO 8 DEGREES NOSE UP."
"AOA, AIRSPEED, TURN NEEDLE ANALYZE."
If recovery is indicated and airspeed is greater than 150 knots:
"RECOVER NOT TO EXCEED 17 UNITS."
Follow on nose low unusual attitude calls may be required.
Unusual attitudes in the training environment will not intentionally
be allowed to develop into spins or spirals. If however a spin or a
spiral is confirmed, the appropriate spin or spiral recovery
procedures will be executed as required by NATOPS.
111. RADAR APPROACHES
There are two basic types of ground controlled (RADAR) approaches: the precision approach
(PAR), and airport surveillance radar approach (ASR). The precision approach provides the
pilot with precise course, glideslope, and range information. The surveillance approach provides
only course and range information, and is classified as a non-precision approach. A PAR or an
ASR approach will be accomplished during phase one of the BI simulators. The student may
attempt an ASR or PAR during phase two if time and proficiency allow. These approaches are
most frequently flown to an arrested landing.
