INTERMEDIATE FLIGHT PREPARATION WORKBOOK
After airborne, verbalize, "Two positive rates of climb".
Retract the gear (on P command).
Verbalize "400 feet" (AGL as noted on radio altimeter).
Retract flaps (on P command).
Run After Takeoff Checklist.
Navigate the departure instructions/SID.
Call: "Departure" when directed.
10. Monitor engine instruments to ensure the engines are operating within limits. Give
appropriate MCT settings every 5000 feet in the climb.
11. Initiate the Climb Checklist (passing 10,000 feet).
Continue Climb Checklist passing transition altitude (18,000 feet).
13. One thousand feet prior to final level-off, check Ram Air Temperature (RAT), give a MCT,
and an Indicated Mach Number (IMN) (cruise mach).
14. Accomplish a Cruise Checklist (once level).
The standards for departure are: Arcing to a tolerance of +1 NM course control to a tolerance of
+2 NM and 3 radials (whichever is less). On departure, 90° turns are led by 1% of GS, TAS, or
Indicated Airspeed (IAS), using this order of precedence.
208. IFR PROCEDURAL CALLS
Three calls are performed at each Turnpoint (TP): "Two-Minute Prior", "Mark-on-Top", and
The Two-Minute Prior call is given 2 minutes from the calculated ETA at the upcoming TP. If
the TP is estimated at 15+30, a two-minute prior call should be given at 13+30. The Two-
Minute Prior call consists of:
Outbound heading for course.
2. ETA at and description of navigation to the next checkpoint (i.e., direct, via jet route XX,
