Due to traffic considerations, ATC may request you maintain an

Report the Before Landing Checklist to the IP.
7. Missed Approach Review. Ask the IP if a review of the missed approach procedure/climb

Once handed off to the final controller, he will conduct a radio check and give a reminder

the IP. Monitor pilot inputs to ensure he complies with instructions and direct IP corrections as
10. Descent to MDA/DH.
Glidepath intercept. On a PAR approach, once the controller advises "On
glidepath," direct the IP to descend to the DH. If a deviation from the
glidepath occurs, the student shall direct the IP to correct by using the
