INTERMEDIATE FLIGHT PREPARATION WORKBOOK
1. The student's primary scan is runway alignment and airspeed. The secondary scan is
engine instruments and annunciator panel. Students should not fixate on the airspeed indicator.
Call: "Off the peg, 80 KTS, S1, rotate" (acceleration check if required replaces the 80 KTS
Note attitude (13-15 degrees noseup).
Monitor attitude, airspeed, VSI, altimeter, and scan outside.
Verbalize "Two positive rates of climb" once 2 positive rates are confirmed.
Raise the gear and flaps when directed by P.
Once A/C is "clean", initiate the After T/O Checklist.
6. Do not respond "Gear is up" until the landing gear are up with lights out. Do not respond
"Flaps are up" until the flaps are indicating "full up."
Aviate, Navigate, Communicate, checklists.
Clear All Turns
All turns regardless of direction should be cleared on the student's side.
2. Clear as often as rate of bank/turn dictates (turns greater than 30o Angle of Bank (AOB)
requires an almost continual clearing turn outward at co-altitude and above if climbing).
Generally the CP should "stay out of phase" with the P (i.e., if the P is primarily scanning
outside/left then the CP should scan inside/right).
Perform the Climb Checklist passing 10,000 feet.
One thousand feet prior to final level-off, give a MCT and an IMN for cruise.
Perform the Cruise Checklist at initial level-off and periodically during cruise flight.
4. TP procedures are expected to be performed at all fixes and NAVAIDS, including
departures and approaches (may be modified in climb/descents by omitting ETAs and Estimated
B-4 WHAT IS EXPECTED (NOT ALL INCLUSIVE)
