INTERMEDIATE FLIGHT PREPARATION WORKBOOK
201. FLIGHT SCHEDULE
The daily flight schedule assigns crews and missions for the next day. When assigned a DD 175
flight, there will be a note on the flight schedule to contact the Mission Commander for the route.
It is the student's responsibility to determine the forecast weather and contact the Mission
Commander with suggestions for a route of flight. If you cannot contact the Mission
Commander ask the Command Duty Officer (CDO), who will either give you directions or refer
you to an instructor who will. In the event of a DD 175 flight, the crew will meet at Base
Operations No Later Than (NLT) the brief time or as designated by the instructor; otherwise, the
crew will meet in the Ready Room.
202. FLIGHT INFORMATION PUBLICATIONS
The Department of Defense (DoD) FLIP contains information for preflight planning and enroute
use. Prior to the flight, aircrewmembers should consult the GP, AP, and Planning Change
notices for information on items that may be needed during flight, such as IFR and VFR routes,
Supplemental Airport Remarks, and MOA boundaries.
Appropriate in-flight publications must be carried on every flight. Students are required to have
any publications that may be used during a flight except for GP and the AP publications. If you
are going on an out-and-in or cross-country, you will need area charts, high altitude charts, low
altitude charts covering the entire route of flight, high and low altitude approach plates, and
Standard Terminal Arrive Routes (STARs) for your destination. Ensure you have publications
for divert fields along your route.
203. JET CARDS
Jet Cards are used to plan fuel consumption, ETAs, to collect aerodrome information for the
destination, alternate, and emergency divert fields. Jet Cards are not used for enroute navigation.
Each student will bring Jet Cards for the planned route of flight. Jet Card construction is the
same as previously learned with a few exceptions:
Estimated Time Enroute (ETE) may be figured to either the nearest minute or half minute.
2. Fuel figures for the T-1A aircraft can be divided into three parts: Normal Thrust Climb,
Enroute Fuel Flow, and Divert Requirements.
3. Planned fuel load is 4500 lbs. Reserve fuel requirement is 500 lbs or 20 min at 10,000 feet
MSL at maximum endurance. At NPA, T-1 reserve fuel requirement is always 500 lbs.
All flights will be planned to arrive at the destination IAF with a minimum of 700 lbs of
fuel remaining. Plan 200 lbs for Start/Taxi/Takeoff and 200 lbs for each approach planned.
