Publications, Checklists, Flashcards, Etc...


Recommended Posts

Checklists: in the T-6 there is a single-page document (often folded in half to have two sides) called the Consolidated Checklist or something like that. It starts at the cockpit check and ends with the Engine Shutdown checklist. Memorize it. Know every checklist, item by item, cold. Use your cockpit poster to help you memorize it, and when you are taught about the "flow and verify" method of running a checklist, use it.

Radio calls: they are listed out, generally put together in some sort of gouge document the Simulator Instructors hand out. Memorize them. Be able to spit the radio calls out, and know when to say them. Every single one for the various Contact profiles.

Departure Procedures. At CBM there are four you use in the Contact Phase. Memorize them. Cold. They are simple, and short. Know them like the back of your hand.

Any place to find online this prior to starting UPT and getting your books issued? I've checked t6driver.com and the rest.

I disagree with that advice. Again, you will have plenty of time to learn while you're there. Unless you can get your hand on the CURRENT checklist (unlikely, controlled document) you are taking your chances with gouge. Seriously, don't sweat trying to learn stuff early.

No. It will be given to you during Phase 1. That is when you should start learning it.

All of my advice takes effect on day one of UPT. Not earlier.

Yeah, Phase 1, Day 1 is a good time to start (unless you show up early and have friends that know what stuff is current, and you've got nothing better to do.)

Phase 1 is all academics and sims for 6 weeks. It goes from an almost "zero knowledge" point. So, you'll get systems, wx, VFR/IFR rules, etc. etc. That is really the time to get ahead with checklists (that single-page handout you use in the aircraft), local procedures, etc.

Possibly some of the worst advice ever given on this site.

But that was before you read this...

go to a KINKOs or other print shop near the UPT base and ask for the UPT gouge.
