T-6A INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
The GPS always displays distance TO the active waypoint, which
is different than the DME distance FROM the NAVAID on the
IAP. Pilots must exercise extreme caution to preclude either a
dangerously early or late descent on final. Do not confuse GPS
distance with DME.
Verify APR ARM is annunciated within 30 NM of the airfield.
Select the SuperNav 5 display. Set the scale to AUTO.
The CDI scale will smoothly change from + 5.0 NM to + 1.0 NM
full deflection at this time. The CDI scale is in NM not degrees.
Select LEG mode prior to the IAF.
At IAF perform 6 Ts.
Once established on the arc:
Twist in the desired track from the GPS into the CDI.
The Active WPT will now be the point at the end of the arc. This is where the GPS
needle will be pointing.
Configure to BAC 4 NM prior to FAWP.
If the aircraft is on the arc, the CDI will be centered. The GPS
needle will point to the next WPT not the NAVAID. Use the CDI
to stay on the arc. The desired track will be located in the bottom
left corner of the GPS in SuperNav 5.
10. Once on the FAC, ensure the Active WPT is the FAWP.
The KLN 900 display should indicate a solid line through the
FAWP oriented accurately to display the FAC and the aircraft's
position relative to it.
