T-6A INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
If available, it is a good practice to keep one NAVAID set up for
an approach back into the departure airfield in the event this
becomes necessary. For situational awareness, the IP will always
have the GPS double needle up on the EHSI pointing to the
departure airport. No later than the MOT at the first point, the
double needle will be deselected by the IP.
Set the appropriate course in the course select window. Ensure the appropriate source
is selected to navigate direct to the first fix along your route of flight in the event
radar contact is not established after takeoff.
Set assigned squawk into the transponder, if not previously accomplished.
Report, "Instrument Checklist complete."
6. Read the challenge portion of the Over-Speed Governor Checklist. The IP will perform the
action and provide the appropriate response.
Accomplish the Before Takeoff Checklist.
If you are ready for takeoff and did not receive departure
instructions with your clearance, when you call for takeoff, Tower
will provide you with instructions.
Give departure brief: "THAR."
First heading after takeoff
Restrictions: If any. (Refer to DP, SID, or ATC instructions.)
Your Departure Brief for this IFR clearance would be:
"Departure Brief. 1.0 DME past the TACAN turn right heading 150. Climb to 3000 feet.
