T-6A INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
CHAPTER SIX
604. TERMINAL AREA RESPONSIBILITIES
NOTE
Turnpoint procedures are no longer required once inbound to the
initial point in the terminal area or once you have checked in with
the terminal approach controller. This does not remove the
responsibility for navigating through all points to the destination.
DESCENT CHECKLIST
Once you have initiated descent into the terminal area or established contact with your
destination Approach Control, initiate the Descent Checklist.
DRAFT
The DRAFT Report will be given immediately following the Descent Checklist for the
destination. After completing the Descent Checklist ask the IP if he/she requires a DRAFT
Report. Because of the purpose of the report, it is not required for drop-in approaches.
If weather and/or fuel considerations indicate a possibility of proceeding to your alternate, you
will need to have your alternate information prior to commencing the approach. DRAFT is an
acronym used to accommodate this and consists of:
D - destination
R - route
A - altitude
F - fuel on board (expressed in hours and minutes of fuel remaining)
T - time to your destination
For planning purposes, unless given other direction by your instructor, plan the DRAFT to go
from the MAP or DH to the furthest IAF at the selected alternate. If weather is below mins at the
primary destination and an approach is not to be attempted, then the DRAFT begins at the point
where the divert begins. Fuel on board will be calculated using the fuel flow you have
experienced during the enroute portion of your flight and using the last IAF fuel estimate minus
50 pounds per approach.
NOTES
1.  "DRAFT" is a training term. Do not use the word "DRAFT"
when contacting ATC.
