T-1A FLIGHT PROFILES
Every successful flight depends on thorough planning prior to flight. Preflight planning includes:
Jet Cards for fuel planning, DD 175s for ATC coordination, knowledge of FLIP, NOTAMS,
forecasted weather, and a thorough knowledge of flight procedures. This section will cover the
basic preflight planning and flight procedures for Instrument Navigation flights as flown during
I5201 through I5204 and the N5290.
All Terminal Objectives are tested on a written examination with a minimum score of 80%.
Maintain or make recommendations to maintain a specified course, given a published
Standard Instrument Departure (SID) or approach, to a tolerance of: arcs + 1 NM; course + 3º or
2 NM (whichever is less).
Maintain or make recommendations to maintain a specified enroute course including Point-
to-Points (Pt.-to-Pt.), given radio aids to navigation, FLIP and appropriate charts to a tolerance
of: + 5º or 3 NM (whichever is less).
Determine wind direction and speed, given a T-1A mission: + 30º, + 10 KTS.
Maintain or make recommendations to maintain assigned and published altitudes, given a
specified route or assigned a specific altitude, in accordance with FARs.
5. Execute or make recommendations to execute holding procedures, given a specified
holding course, in accordance with FARs.
6. Execute or make recommendations to execute VFR entry and traffic pattern procedures,
given a specified airfield, in accordance with FLIP and local directives.
Execute "Draft" in flight as directed, given instructor assistance, without error.
Update destination estimated IAF fuel remaining and mission completion feasibility at each
navigational checkpoint considering the effects of forecast and observed meteorological
conditions, given a specified course, Jet Log, and forecast weather to a tolerance of: + 100 lbs of
like calculations made by the INFO/INAV.
Make recommendations for an alternate destination based on estimated fuel requirements
and observed and forecasted meteorological conditions, given a specified course, Flight Log, and
forecasted weather, without error.
