T-6A INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
1. The LOC is considered reliable within 18 miles of the
transmitter within 10º or 10 miles within 35º of the course
centerline unless the published approach depicts a transition point
at a farther distance. The glideslope is considered reliable within
10 miles of the transmitter provided the aircraft is on the LOC
2. If the LOC fails, an ILS approach is not authorized. If the
glideslope fails, the ILS reverts to a non-precision LOC approach.
TRANSITION TO BAC
Transition once within 4 NM of the FAF and aircraft heading within 90º of the FAC. Distance
can be determined:
by voice report from ATC.
use of the GPS needle pointing to the OM/FAF.
At LOC intercept, provide heading inputs directing the IP to maintain course. Heading
increments of 10º or less are normally sufficient to maintain course.
At glidepath intercept, direct the IP to descend to the DH. When the student observes a
deviation from the glideslope, he shall direct the IP to correct by using the verbiage
"Increase rate of descent" if above the glidepath or "Decrease rate of descent" if below
MISSED APPROACH REVIEW
Ask the IP if a review of the missed approach procedure/climb out instructions is required. This
review shall occur after the Before Landing Checklist but prior to the MAP. The review consists
Point at which to execute the missed approach.
First heading to turn.
First climb altitude.
