Card Set Information
Minimum vectoring altitude
Provides 1000? of obstruction clearance above the highest obstacle
Provides 2000? of obstruction clearance above the highest obstacles in mountainous areas
Weather is greater than 500? above MVA and visibility is greater than 3 miles, the controller can vector the aircraft to intercept final:
At least 1 mile from the FAF at a max intercept angle of 20 degrees
At least 3 miles for the FAF at a max intercept angle of 30 degrees
Weather worse than 500? above MVA and visibility less than 3 miles, the controller must vector the aircraft:
To intercept no less than 3 miles from the FAF with no more than 30 degrees of intercept
(T/F) PAR minimums are for straight-in approaches only, while ASRs can have both straight-in and circling minimums published.
Threshold crossing height (TCH)
How many feet above the ground we will be when crossing over the threshold on the glideslope
Runway point intercept (RPI)
How many feet down the runway you will touchdown if you maintain on the glideslope
Height above touchdown (HAT)
Height of the DA/DH or MDA above the highest point on the first 3000? runway on a published straight-in procedure
Height above airport (HAA)
Is the height of the MDA above the published airfield elevation
When being radar vectored, what are pilots required to read back?
When flying in a radar environment, attempt to contact ATC if no transmission has been received for?
1 minute being vectored
15 seconds on ASR final
5 seconds on PAR final
If you have in-flight malfunctions of nav or air/ground comm, what is required in your report?
Degree to which IFR capability is impaired
Nature of assistance required from ATC
Radar pattern, airspeed on downwind?
Radar pattern, airspeed on base leg?
You man configure
Radar pattern, final approach airspeed?
What is a good technique for altitude changes in a radar pattern?
Descent rate = to number of feet to loose, not to exceed 1000 fpm
On an ASR approach, what should you do prior to being told you are approaching the begin descent point?
In order to land from an ASR approach, what must you have at the MDA?
Runway environment in sight
Aircraft in a position to make a safe landing
When flying a PAR, after initial contact with ATC, what call do you anticipate to hear, about 10-30 seconds from descent point?
For a PAR approach, after hearing ?begin descent,? what will be the pitch and descent rate?
When flying a PAR approach, how is the DA determined?
Reading it on the altimeter
When advised by the controller
Which ever comes first
What do you need to conduct a no-gyro approach?
Turn needle and attitude gyro
