PNF calls, “Minimums, (time or distance) to go.” Verify altitude and time or distance to go. Call, “Check.” Crossing missed approach point. If the runway environment is in sight, call what you see. E.g. “Approach lights, continue.” Runway is in sight. Call, “Runway in sight.” PNF calls, “Runway in sight.” OR Crossing missed approach point. Call, “Going visual” (Final flap setting should be selected when landing is assured). Confirm going visual call by stating, “Roger, monitoring instruments.” Monitor flight instruments. If the runway is NOT in sight, call, “minimums, go-around.” PNF calls, “Minimums, go-around.” Call, “going around.” Execute missed approach procedure. NOTE: If visual contact is lost beyond the MAP, a go-around is to be announced and executed by the PF. VISUAL APPROACH Reported weather at the airport must have a ceiling of at least 1000 feet and visibility of at least 3 miles. Landing flaps will be selected no later than 500 feet AGL. The approach will be stabilized from 500 feet AGL until landing. The stabilized approach requires the aircraft to be established on the desired track, glide path, in landing configuration and with airspeed and sink rate constant. APPROACH DEVIATION LIMITS (CALLOUTS AFTER PASSING FAF OR 1000 FEET AGL ) After passing the FAF or 1000 feet AGL the PNF will call out any warning indications, or deviations, as noted below. The PF will acknowledge with “Correcting”. If the PF does not respond and the deviation continues, the PNF will repeat the call. If the PF still does not respond or the deviation remains uncorrected, the PNF will take control of the aircraft following the second failure to respond by the PF. The change of control will be announced by the PNF stating, “My airplane”. PRECISION APPROACH Task/Initiation Cue PF PNF One dot right or left of localizer Call, “One dot right” or “one dot left.” One dot above glideslope, anything below glideslope Call, “One dot high” or “low on glideslope.” NON-PRECISION APPROACH NBAA Safety Best Practices

Safety Best Practices Manual Task/Initiation Cue PF PNF VOR or LOC approach: One dot right or left of course. Call, “One dot right,” or “One dot left.” NBD Approach: ±5º right or left of desired bearing. (Maximum deviation allowed ±10º) Call actual deviation, “___° right,” or “___° left.” VISUAL APPROACH SLOPE INDICATOR (VASI) Task/Initiation Cue PF PNF Above glidepath or below glidepath. Call, “Above glidepath,” or “Below glidepath.” APPROACH SPEED Task/Initiation Cue PF PNF Vref to Vref +10kts. No calls. Speed greater thanVref +10kts or any speed below Vref. Call actual deviation relative to Vref. E.g. “Vref plus ___ kts”, or “Vref minus ___ kts.” VERTICAL SPEED Task/Initiation Cue PF PNF Sink rate exceeds 1000 feet per minute without corrective action initiated by PF.

    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.
