When sufficient outside references are not available, use _____ and cross-check _____. At rotation speed, rotate _____ nose high.
Before you retract the gear, confirm you have ____
both VSI and altimeter showing a climb
The _____ is used to take an aircraft safely from the takeoff phase to the next phase of flight.
USAF aircraft will depart IFR using only what methods:
Specific ATC instructions
Special MAJCOM certification
Why use a SID?
simplify clearnce delivery
assist in meeting environmental, capacity, ATC requirements
Types of ODP:
Reduced takeoff runway length
Visual climb over airport
Sector departure ODP
Reduced takeoff runway length (RTRL)
must ensure aircraft can attain liftoff speed prior to distance remaining specified in the procedure
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
Sector departure ODP
fly as published
T or F: If issued other instructions, pilots should request clearance to fly ODP.
published ODP may exist for the airfield
Nonstandard weather minimums
Do FLIP nonstandard weather minimums apply to USAF aircraft?
Who determines USAF takoff minimums?
owning service or command
Do USAF ODP apply?
Where do you locate the ODP and takeoff minimums for an airport?
front part of FLIP terminal low or high altitude book
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
When would you fly a Diverse departure?
When the airfield does not have a published IFR departures
In order to fly a diverse departure:
fly runway heading until 400' above departure end prior to turning
ensure aircraft will clear obstacles
When is a diverse departure not authorized?
when a ODP, climb gradient, non-standard Wx min are published
What information do departure procedure plates/charts provide?
route and altitude restrictions
Departure plate provides what information?
min rate of climb
graphic of route with altitude and DME
departure route description
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.
T or F: If issued a radar vector, any previously received instructions or clearances are superseded.
Minimum safe altitude (MSA)
provides 1000' clearance over obstructions/terrain within 25NM of the Navaid in which the approach chart is centered
