T-6A INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
All approaches will be flown at 120 KIAS after BAC.
Holding: 150 KIAS
Obtain a GS check after you are established on course (radial tracking), at altitude and at cruise
airspeed. GS checks should not be initiated near your tuned TACAN or VOR/DME station
within a radius equivalent in miles to the thousands of feet at which you are flying. For example,
if you are at 10,000 feet, you should not calculate a GS check within 10 DME of the station. The
GS check should last a minimum of one minute during un-accelerated flight.
Enroute: If you are continuing on or joining an airway at a NAVAID, lead your turn by 1/2 of
1% of your GS plus minimum DME if the turn exceeds 90º.
Terminal Area: All turns onto or off of arcs and inside the IAF shall be led in order to maintain
the desired track/course.
Altitude warnings are given to ensure altitude awareness. Altitude warnings shall be given:
15,000 feet MSL.
10,000 feet MSL.
6000 feet AGL. (Uncontrolled Ejection Altitude)
Below 6000 feet AGL, warning calls shall be made passing each 1000 feet MSL, until
inside the FAF.
During all climbs and descents: 500 feet prior to any level-off altitude until inside the FAF.
Two hundred feet prior to reaching MDA/DH and all restrictions inside the FAF.
ALTIMETER CHANGEOVER PROCEDURES
Climb: Change to 29.92" upon reaching 18,000 feet MSL.
