1. When sufficient outside references are not available, use _____ and cross-check _____. At rotation speed, rotate _____ nose high.
    • runway centerline
    • heading
    • 7-10
  2. Before you retract the gear, confirm you have ____
    both VSI and altimeter showing a climb
  3. The _____ is used to take an aircraft safely from the takeoff phase to the next phase of flight.
    instrument departure
  4. USAF aircraft will depart IFR using only what methods:
    • SID
    • ODP
    • Specific ATC instructions
    • Diverse departures
    • Special MAJCOM certification
  5. Why use a SID?
    • simplify clearnce delivery
    • assist in meeting environmental, capacity, ATC requirements
  6. Types of ODP:
    • Reduced takeoff runway length
    • Visual climb over airport
    • Sector departure ODP
  7. Reduced takeoff runway length (RTRL)
    must ensure aircraft can attain liftoff speed prior to distance remaining specified in the procedure
  8. Visual climb over airport (VCOA)
    • climb in VMC over airfield or on airport NAVAID to altitude in the protection area of the ODP
    • Wx must be above mins published for VCOA
  9. Sector departure ODP
    fly as published
  10. T or F: If issued other instructions, pilots should request clearance to fly ODP.
  11. Add picture
    • published ODP may exist for the airfield
    • Nonstandard weather minimums
  12. Do FLIP nonstandard weather minimums apply to USAF aircraft?
  13. Who determines USAF takoff minimums?
    owning service or command
  14. Do USAF ODP apply?
  15. Where do you locate the ODP and takeoff minimums for an airport?
    front part of FLIP terminal low or high altitude book
  16. T or F: Specific ATC departure instructions may be issued with minimum climb gradient or confirmation that climb gradient does not exceed 200 ft/min
  17. When would you fly a Diverse departure?
    When the airfield does not have a published IFR departures
  18. In order to fly a diverse departure:
    • fly runway heading until 400' above departure end prior to turning
    • ensure aircraft will clear obstacles
  19. When is a diverse departure not authorized?
    when a ODP, climb gradient, non-standard Wx min are published
  20. What information do departure procedure plates/charts provide?
    route and altitude restrictions
  21. Departure plate provides what information?
    • communication freq
    • min rate of climb
    • graphic of route with altitude and DME
    • departure route description
  22. T or F: If a controller issues a clearnace to "climb and maintain" or "maintain" an altitude without other restrictions in that clearance, you may disregard the DP's altitude restrictions, but sitll fly the DP route.
  23. T or F: If issued a radar vector, any previously received instructions or clearances are superseded.
  24. Minimum safe altitude (MSA)
    provides 1000' clearance over obstructions/terrain within 25NM of the Navaid in which the approach chart is centered
