  1. WX which requires an Alternate
    • Worst Case - TEMPO or Prevailing
    • +-1hour of ETA
    • Ceiling <1000' or lowest compat appr+400'
    • Vis <2SM
  2. Non-WX factors requiring an Alternate
    • All appr req RADAR
    • Req'd NAVAID is unmonitored
    • No WX reporting
    • Lowest compat appr has WX => 1500' / 3SM
  3. Alternate WX requirements
    • Worst case WX (except TEMPO for TS or Snow/Rain showers) better than:
    • +-1hr of ETA
    • Ceiling: lowest compat appr + 200'
    • Vis: lowest compat appr + 1SM
  4. Airports unqual'd for Alternate:
    • All compat appr req RADAR
    • GPS is only available NAVAID
    • A NA on all compat approaches
    • Inv "A" designated on ALL compat appr & associated note applies
  5. Filing IFR to destination requires
    Approved, Published IAP capable of being flown
  6. Filing IFR to destination w/o published IAP
    WX at destination (+1hr ETA) forecast to be VFR or able to fly an approach to VFR conditions (+1hr ETA) and proceed VFR to destination
  7. WX Requirements for filing IFR (w/ TEMPO exception)
    • +-1hr ETA
    • =>lowest compat appr req'd WX
    • Strt-in - Vis only
    • Circling - Vis & Ceiling (PV)
    • Can still file if TEMPO conditions is lower than req'd WX, but may req an Alternate
  8. WX Requirements for filing IFR (Helo Exceptions)
    • Helo may use A Category WX req
    • May 1/2 vis req (not lower than 1/4 or 1200RVR)
    • Apply inop ltg correction prior to 1/2
    • If using 1/2 vis, slow to 90kts by MAP
    • Copter approach - no 1/2 & fly at 90kts
  9. RVR-PV (and reverse) conversion for:
    Take off WX & Straight-In approaches
  10. Takeoff Mins (11-202V3) - No less than ____
  11. Takeoff Mins (11-2H60): Training
    • =>Lowest compat appr Ceiling AND Vis
    • > 1/2SM / 2400RVR
  12. Takeoff Mins (11-2H60): Ops (No Dept Alt)
    => Lowest compat appr Vis
  13. Takeoff Mins (11-2H60): Ops (w/ Dept Alt)
    • => Lowest compat appr 1/2Vis
    • >1/4SM / 1200RVR
  14. Takeoff Mins (11-2H60): Ops (Dept Alt requirements)
    • Must be w/in 60 min flight
    • WX +1hr ETA
    • WX>Lowest compat appr Ceiling AND Vis
    • WX>1200RVR
  15. Takeoff Mins (11-2H60): Ops (Life and Death)
    WG/CC may approve lower with detailed COA planned/briefed.
  16. Fuel Requirements: Reserve for all Flights; VFR or IFR
    500 lbs total
  17. Fuel Requirements: Filing Vis only, add ____ lbs for IAP & MAP.
    500 lbs
  18. IFR Departures: PIC Responsibilities
    Brief departure method, climb gradient, low close-in obstacles, route, EPs prior to takeoff
  19. Authorized Departure Methods (5):
    • Published ODPs (incl RTRL & VCOA)
    • SID
    • ATC Deptarture Instructions
    • Divers Deptartures (Omni-directional)
    • Special MAJCOM procedures
  20. OPD-VCOA: To fly VCOA, aircrews require ____ prior to flying these departures
    MAJCOM specified training
  21. ODP-RTRL: PIC will ensure _____.
    Aircraft can takeoff prior to remaining runway length specified in ODP.
  22. "Trouble T" indicates _____.
    Required climb gradient/ altitudes associated with SID and/or ODP.
  23. Specific ATC Instructions - prior to flying ____
    • Confirm Climb Gradient
    • Confirm not greater than 200/NM
    • Use departing runway Climb Gradient if none issued.
    • If unable to meet ATC climb gradient, coordinate alternate COA 
  24. Diverse Departures Procedures
    • Climb 400' above DER prior to turning
    • Ensure low close-in obstacles will be cleared
  25. Diverse Depatures Not Auth if (3):
    • ODP published for that runway
    • Published Climb/Gradient for that runway
    • Alternate T/O Mins published for that runway
  26. Min Climb Gradient (if none published)
    200/NM (~ 300-250 FPM at 70-90 kts)
  27. "Inverse A" indicates ____
    Non-standard Alternate mins apply. Review notes to see if applicable.
  28. "Trouble T" indicates ____.
    Non-standard Takeoff Mins apply and/or Departure Procedures published
  29. Differences between SID and ODP
    • SID is designed for ATC convenience/routing
    • SID requires ATC clearance
    • SID will provide obstacle clearance
    • ODP may be req'd even though not issued in ATC clearance
    • ODP - inform ATC if using ODP
    • ODP Graphic depiction identified with "(OBSTACLE)" in title
  30. Non-Standard Takeoff Minimums
    • Takeoff Mins NA for USAF
    • Must meet Climb Gradient
    • -or-
    • Arrive at published TO Min ceiling Altitude by DER and continue climb to avoid obstacles
    • -or-
    • Climb in VMC to appropriate IFR altitude
  31. OROCA/ORTCA definition
    • 5NM either side of course
    • 1000' clearance non-mountainous terrain
    • 2000' clearance mountainous terrain
    • NLT 1000' AGL
    • Provide ATC/NAVAID Reception
  32. WX req'd to initiate Descent/IAP
    WX >= Mins for compat appr
