CHAPTER SIX
T-6A INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
4.
Temperature/dew point (spread within 4, potential for haze/fog).
5.
Winds.
6.
Altimeter settings.
7.
Duty runway.
8.
Any other information that could affect your flight (i.e., arresting gear is rigged.)
Your last option is to report "negative information" or "negative ATIS" when you check in with
Approach. This is not optimum because if the approach frequency is busy, other aircraft will
have to stand by while ATC reads the current information to you. However, if it is the method
you have to use, be ready to copy because ATC will reply immediately with the required
information.
FIELD BRIEF
The field brief describes the airfield at which an approach is anticipated. It is initiated after
ATIS information is known. It consists of, but is not limited to WERLONA:
Weather:
Brief the ATIS information you received.
Elevation:
Field elevation.
Runway:
Description of runway you intend to land and arresting gear.
Lighting:
Description of runway and approach lighting (only required at night or
IMC) for runway of intended landing.
Obstructions:
Location and height of highest obstruction at the airfield as depicted in the
airport sketch and the highest obstacle on the overhead view on IAP.
NAVAID:
Location of NAVAID relative to the airfield.
Altitude:
Highest MSA.
The brief should emphasize the active runway (to include length and width) with a brief
statement addressing other runways. Any known NOTAMS in effect (e.g., closed
runways/taxiways) are also included.
