T-2C FLIGHT PROCEDURES
126.96.36.199.7. STUDENT "Engine anti-ice." (Challenge)
188.8.131.52.8. IP "Off." (Reply)
184.108.40.206.9. STUDENT "Tip tank dump not required. Fuel is 2.6, wings." (This is a good
time to check fuel status and develop an estimated fuel weight for computing on speed
AOA as required in the Landing Checklist)
220.127.116.11. The remaining three items in the Penetration Checklist are at the IP's discretion. For
example, the student asks the IP if he or she requires a field brief. Good crew coordination
dictates the student is prepared to provide a field and approach brief, regardless of the field and
type of approach selected. A holding brief is obviously only applicable if holding is expected.
1.7.1. Visual Overhead
18.104.22.168. The visual overhead (break) is the type of recovery most utilized during the T-2 stage.
Weather permitting; it is the recovery of choice for most flights. It is important; therefore, the
student is familiar with the Arrival Procedures (Course Rules) in effect at NAS Pensacola.
22.214.171.124. Approaching the initial for the runway in use (i.e. X-ray for RWY 7), the student notifies
the Approach controller the initial is in sight.
126.96.36.199.1. STUDENT "Pensacola Approach, RKT 204, X-ray in sight."
188.8.131.52.2. APPROACH "Roger RKT 204, contact Tower."
184.108.40.206.3. STUDENT "RKT 204, switching Tower."
220.127.116.11. On initial contact with Tower, the student requests the low altitude break unless
otherwise instructed by the IP.
18.104.22.168.1. STUDENT "Tower, RKT 204, two miles south of X-ray, request 1000 feet
22.214.171.124.2. TOWER "Roger RKT 204, report the numbers RWY 7R, passing three DME,
1000 feet break approved."
126.96.36.199.3. STUDENT "RKT 204, Wilco."
188.8.131.52. When approaching or overhead the numbers,
184.108.40.206.1. STUDENT "Tower, RKT 204, numbers."
220.127.116.11.2. TOWER "RKT 204, right break approved."
NOTE: There is no need to report the numbers if clearance to break has already been received.
18.104.22.168. The IP ensures the aircraft is slowed and the gear and flaps are lowered as the aircraft
decelerates through 165 kts. The student initiates the Landing Checklist only after visually
confirming the gear is down-and-locked on the landing gear indicator. This is a C&R Checklist.
Remember to verify all indications and responses.
