T-6A NAVIGATION
CHAPTER FIVE
A 2-Minute Prior Call is appropriate before the entry point. Route entry is the student's
responsibility and either method of entry is acceptable (direct or outbound parallel). In some
situations a modified entry may be necessary due to time, fuel or airspace constraints. Later
stages of training may not allow an outbound parallel entry type as other routes may be restricted
by entry and exit times. Use good crew coordination and situational awareness to determine the
method that best applies to the situation.
Approaching the entry point, determine the temperature compensated airspeed (MACH), cross-
check the Squawk (1200), and give the Clock brief (i.e., "ready, ready, . . . hack") prior to
entering the route. Because the entry point will be directly underneath the aircraft, pick a
reference point abeam the entry point to start the clock. Start the clock when abeam the reference
point--a simple but critical step. A personal watch or clock shall be used, in addition to (not
instead of) the aircraft clock. Refer to the T-6A NATOPS for the clock's operating instructions.
