  5. What weather type mins do we need for:
    Circling approach?
    Ceiling and Vis need to be above published, but no lower than 600-2.  

    If none published, add 100' to HAA and round to next 100'
  6. What if you lose vis commencing the circle?
    Execute a climbing turn towards the landing runway and execute the published missed approach.
  7. How long to time for 45/180 procedure turn?
    1:15 on the barb.  

    Hack: at 45 sec turn outbound, at 2 min turn back.
  8. If established on a segment of the approach and the weather goes below mins what can you do?
    You have the option to continue the approach to MAP and either execute a missed approach or land if conditions permit.
  9. Holding Airspeeds:
    • 0-6,000'  =  200 K
    • 6-14,000'=  230 K
    • > 14,000' = 265 K

    • USAF max = 310 K
    • USN   max = 230 K
  10. What is station passage:
    VOR
    TACAN
    ADF
    • VOR - indications change to "from"
    • TCN - DME stops decreasing
    • ADF - bearing pointer swings past 90*
  11. What is established on course?
    • Localizer:  Full-scale deflection
    • VOR/TCN/RNAV: Half full scale deflection
    • NDB:  5*
  12. CAT II: airfield requirements?
    • Runway centerline lights
    • Dual RVR readouts
  13. CAT II: Min equipment a/c
    • 2 PLSRs
    • HUD/PFD at each station (use hud if available)
    • 1 RA
    • 1 F/D
    • Cat II switch selected
    • No Cat II messages
  14. CAT II: wind limits
    Real       10 K
  15. CAT II: WX mins
    1200 RVR
  16. CAT II: Tolerances at 100 ft above DH
    • +-   5 K
    • 1/2 Dot    (LOC and G/S)
  17. Without Full Flight instrumentation what are WX mins?
    300 - 3/4 (RVR) 40
  18. How often must you hear from a controller on downwind/final for:
    PAR
    ASR
    • PAR:   Downwind: 1 min
    •           Final:        5 Sec

    • ASR:  Downwind: 1 min
    •           Final:        15 sec
  19. How fly ASR/PAR?
    • - AP/ATS
    • - HDG select knob
    • - 1/2 STD bank angle
    • - Arm 100' below DH
  20. How do you know your VVI during descent?
    (Ground spd x 10)/2

    120k x 10 = 1200/2 = 600 vvi
  21. Where does landing distance start?
    50' HAT
  22. Landing air distance:
    • 3/4 flp:  1280'
    • Full flp:  770'
  23. What is Ground Roll?
    Landing distance - Air Distance
  24. Latest touchdown for a Touch and Go?
    5700' remaining 

    7,000 (min) minus 1300 (air distance) = 5700'
  25. What if Spoilers don't retract on T/G?
    • PM deselects the spoilers
    • PF goes MAX
  26. What if spoilers don't extend on LDG?
    • PM re-arms spoilers
    • PF uses DLC for 25% effectiveness
  27. Tire limit speed
    182.5
  28. What are the four TR settings?
    • INOP
    • IDLE 
    • MAX 
    • 4ENG
  29. Gear Cooling limits?
    • 4 consecutive landings....then you need to cool
    • 20 min retracted
    • 10 min extended

    any cooling period resets the 4 counter
  30. Stabilized approach criteria:  Instrument approach
    • 1,000'
    • 500'

    • +10/-5 Kts
    • Bank angle  +-15*
    • VVI  +-300
  31. Stabilized approach criteria: Visual
    • 500'
    • 300'

    • +10/-5 Kts
    • Bank angle  +-15*
    • VVI  +-300

    AND when doing a visual approach need the following by 300':

    • Decrabed
    • +10/-5 Kts
    • FPV on API, w/in lateral of rwy
    • ATT
  32. Approach lighting system inop: increase vis by:
    1/2 mile
  33. When use the ILS clear zone?
    Wx less than 800/2
  34. Min Equipment CAT I ILS:
    (2c17 v.3)
