The PNF shall obtain the destination weather and the approach in use information and advise the PF. The PNF shall complete the landing data computations (or verify if already computed) and enter or post numbers, as applicable. Both pilots shall review the information and procedure to be used for the descent and approach. The PF shall provide a brief description of intentions to the PNF. The briefing should be concise and not be an attempt to memorize the approach procedure. It should include a review of the pertinent information and any special conditions, or procedures, that will be utilized for the approach and landing. The 4 “M”s should be reviewed as follows: MSA. Marker altitude. Minimum altitude. Missed approach procedure. Setup and use of navigation equipment and automation shall be briefed as applicable. If any abnormal conditions occurred during the flight which will have an effect on the intended approach and landing, those implications must be thoroughly briefed and understood by both pilots.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
