T-39 FLIGHT PREPARATION
*** Flight standards, DOR/Training Time Out policy, and Safety considerations should be
covered prior to each hop.
Student will brief hop in its entirety, including all standards, with instructor's assistance as
required. Procedurally the same as ANAV-16 & 17.
Turnpoint procedures are expected to be performed at all fixes and NAVAIDS with the
Delete the ETA portion of the 2 min prior call.
Delete the IAF EFR from the wings level.
Wings level fuel will consist of a comparison of actual fuel remaining to the
estimated fuel remaining on the winded flight log (+ preflight).
Route changes should be kept to a minimum where practicable.
b. Practice Enroute Approach
The student should plan at a minimum 3 different approaches at 3 different airfields
(may include a demo ILS; all other approaches are review items). The final approach
will be at the destination airfield.
The student is responsible for all procedures, communications, and copilot duties into,
at, and out of the enroute fields.
The student should know the difference between a High Penetration and Enroute
Descent, and be prepared to give the appropriate request to ATC (probably ARTCC).
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).
c. ATC Check-in
The approach request should include the intention off "place the remainder of my
flight plan as filed to Navy Pensacola (or whatever your destination is) at flight level
xxx on request".
Expect a clearance similar to this: "Callsign, climbout 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 piece-meal during the approach or
