GPS USAGE DURING INSTRUMENT TRAINING
In this stage of training, the GPS needle will be on and utilized in the terminal area, but
unavailable to the student during the enroute portion of the event.
Prior to takeoff, the IP will ensure the GPS is in OBS mode with the needle
pointing to the departure airport.
VOR will be the students sole navigation source for all enroute navigation.
Once enroute to the first point in the terminal, the IP will bring the GPS
needle back on the EHSI.
When utilizing the GPS on non-GPS approaches, understand the
GPS needle is a supplemental tool only for situational awareness.
The priority is to accomplish primary NAVAID (VOR, ILS, and
EHSI) setup and other tasks (briefs, checklists, etc.) first.
