T-34C INSTRUMENT FLIGHT RULES
Don't forget to check NAVAID compatibility (i.e., NDB not installed on T-34C).
NSE IS THE ALT. COPY ELEV AND FREQ ONTO FLT LOG
Compute climb TAS using CR-2.
A) Compute avg alt and round to nearest 500 feet.
1. DEP ELEV(from airport sketch) + CRUISE ALT(given)
2. (317 + 16000)/2 = 8158.5 rounded = 8000
B) Use CR-2 with Climb IAS, AVG Alt, Temp, and Calc TAS
= 135 knots in Climb. Enter on flight log.
Compute Cruise True Airspeed (TAS) using CR-2. = 215 kts.
Enter on flight log
Compute Time To Climb (TTC).
Subtract starting alt from cruise alt. 16000 317 (NMM) = 15683.
Round to nearest 100 feet and divide by climb rate (given) = 15700/1500.
10.46 min, round to nearest min. = 10 min.
Enter on flight log.
Determine your climb and cruise fuel flow using NATOPS.
(For this class, it's given in the problem).
300 Climb, 250 Cruise, Enter on flight log (see sample after step 10).
Review route of flight and record each leg on flight log. Using L-18 chart, Enroute
Supplement, and Approach plates, locate entire route.
