Mandatory altitude calls: "15K MSL, 10K MSL, 5K AGL, 4K MSL, 3K MSL, 2K MSL,
1K MSL." One thousand feet prior to any assigned altitude above 1000 feet, call: "Rad Alt alive"
(radio altimeter is active at 2500 feet AGL), 200 feet prior to any altitude below 1000 feet AGL,
and MDA or DH.
Clear all turns.
