INTERMEDIATE FLIGHT PREPARATION WORKBOOK
Example: "Two minutes prior to Montgomery; outbound heading 310º for a course of 315 o,
ETA to DELBE is 23+45. We're doing a Pt.-to-Pt. to the Meridian 043º at 87 NM."
The Mark-on-Top call consists of:
Left/Right XXX (clear turn).
Time (at minimum DME or needle passing the 90º benchmark).
Fuel on board.
NAVAID (remains the same or switches to next station if on a direct leg).
Example: "Left 310º (at lead point), Time 15+30, place Montgomery, fuel 3800 lbs, NAVAID
switching to Meridian."
The Wings-Level (WL) call is initiated when the aircraft is established on an outbound course
from the TP (navigate prior to TP procedures). The WL call consists of:
Fuel + preflight.
Fuel at the IAF.
Example: "We are 500 lbs above preflight, I estimate 2250 at the initial."
209. GENERAL PROCEDURES
1. A manual GS check is required on the first leg after level-off. Once accomplished,
compare with the aircraft GS readout. If it is determined to be reliable (+10 KTS), the student
may use the GS readout of the EHSI. Keep in mind, GS uses rate of change in DME.
Consequently, the following criteria apply for GS or manual GS checks to be valid:
Stabilized Mach number (M).
