INTERMEDIATE FLIGHT PREPARATION WORKBOOK
Practice Enroute Approach
1. The student should know the difference between a high penetration/enroute descent and be
prepared to give the appropriate request to ATC (probably Air Route Traffic Control Center
2. ATC does not care specifically what approach request you have, but rather how you want to
enter the terminal area (penetration or enroute descent). Also, ATC will be concerned with
whether you plan to leave and/or return to their control (full stop, touch and go, or low approach).
1. The approach request should include the intention of, "Place the remainder of my flight
plan as filed to Navy Pensacola (or whatever your destination is) at flight level xxx on request."
2. Expect a clearance similar to this: "Call sign, climb out instructions are _____, expect FL
xxx in 10 minutes, contact Departure Control on frequency xxx.x, squawk xxxx."
These instructions may be given at one time or piecemeal during the approach or climb out.
Normally the climb out instructions will serve as the Missed Approach Brief.
Dial in your departure altitude in the altitude selector.
6. The student should know the "on-course" heading from the practice field to the next point
in the route of flight.
Student will brief hop in its entirety.
Same procedures and formats as I5201-I5203.
3. The mandatory practice approach should be away from the local area (not talking to
I5202 and I5203 may be completed in any order.
Enroute standards are the same as I5201.
The student should bring to the brief:
A Jet Card winded for all enroute legs.
