T-6A INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
Point at which to execute the missed approach.
First heading to turn.
First climb altitude.
At the FAF, perform the 6 Ts:
TIME. Start the timing to the MAP.
If timing is depicted, you should always start the elapsed timer as a
backup in the event of DME and/or Glideslope failure.
TURN. Direct a turn as necessary to maintain the FAC.
TIME. Second timing not required.
TRANSITION. Direct a descent to MDA or altitude restriction, if any. Ensure rate
of descent utilized is sufficient to meet all altitude restrictions, if any, and arrive at the
MDA prior to the VDP, if depicted, or MAP.
1. There are different techniques for the descent to MDA. One
is to maintain a gradual descent similar to the glideslope. Another
is to descend at a higher rate and arrive at the MDA sooner. The
goal of both is to arrive at the MDA with enough time to visually
acquire the runway environment prior to getting to the MAP.
2. Some approaches have progressively lower stepdown
altitudes. Level off at each stepdown altitude until the indicated
DME point, and then continue descent until the next stepdown
altitude or MDA. Be sure you are using the correct minimums for
the runway in use. When directing a descent, student should direct
the IP to descend to the first altitude, which must be maintained.
Then state any additional altitude restrictions that apply.
TWIST. Set the FAC in the CDI. Intercept and track the FAC.
TALK. Give the voice report, if requested (ensure you have made any required
frequency change). Report 200 feet prior to any level off altitude and MDA to IP.
