INTERMEDIATE FLIGHT PREPARATION WORKBOOK
Fuel Remaining (EFRs), for example: "Two minutes prior to CANUE, outbound heading 186 for
a course of 180").
For climbs, descents, or initial level off, the student may use KTAS or KIAS in figuring
ETAs (IMN X 10 will give a rough TAS in NM/min, e.g., 0.5 IMN = 5 NM/min = 300 KTAS).
At least 3 "complete" TPs at altitude are required to complete any Instrument Navigation
7. Students should plan 2 Pt.-to-Pt. on each Instrument flight sortie. These may include
intersections on SIDs or approaches and will satisfy the "complete" TP requirement if done at
1. (2-Minute Prior) Outbound heading XXX for course XXX (Direct/Jet Route), ETA to
_____ is xx+xx, description of Jet Route or next TP.
(MOT) Left/Right XXX (clear turn), time, place, fuel, and NAVAID.
(WL) Fuel + preflight, Fuel at the IAF is _____.
Lead all turns greater than 30º, including Pt.-to-Pt.
1. One GS check shall be accomplished on the first leg to validate the GS readout. If the
check is within +10 KTS of the readout, GS readout may be used for the remainder of the flight.
Use NAV DATA button on the DSP to toggle to GS.
After GS check, update the ETA to the next point and EFR at the IAF.
Update ETAs and IAF fuels on each leg thereafter.
The student shall also verbalize the wind calculated.
Basic NAVAID Setup
TACAN is the primary NAVAID. VOR or VOR/DME is a backup.
2. At the changeover point on an airway, switch TACAN and give the P a new heading for a
On a direct leg switch TACAN, center CDI, and give the P a new heading for a new course.
