INTERMEDIATE FLIGHT PREPARATION WORKBOOK
Flight Instrument check: the dialogue should resemble the following: "I have 2 airspeed
indicators indicating zero, 2 gyros erect stable no off flags, 2 altimeters reading 40 feet, VSI
reading zero, EHSI and wet compass agree passing two niner zero, and ball is alive."
Anti-Skid check: Students will notify the P that he is clearing the aircraft while the P has
his head in the cockpit checking for proper anti-skid indications (i.e., "I am outside").
When taxiing, priority 1 is to clear A/C (in the ramp area the student should be nearly 100%
dedicated to clearing the A/C).
Before Takeoff Checklist
Flight Management System (FMS)/Multi-Function Display will be set to TCAS mode,
above/below, rel, and 10 mile scope for all departures, low-levels, and approaches.
2. NAVAIDS, DSPs, and flight directors will be set using TACAN as primary means of
navigation. The heading bug will be set to the initial heading for the departure, with the CDI set
to the initial departure course. The first altitude restriction will be set in the altitude preselect.
Students will set 400 feet in the radio altimeter for departure as a reminder for flap retraction.
During Instrument Navigation flights, GS will be displayed in the bottom right corner of the
EHSI using the NAV DATA button after completion of a GS check using the DSP. At no time
will winds be displayed.
Brief what is set into each NAVAID.
Include first heading, course, and altitude.
Receive the Abort Brief from the P.
Lineup Checklist (Initiate steps 1-5 in the hold short area.)
Verbalize clearing the "groove."

on the runway.
