Lookout, Attitude, Instruments

A method of maintaining a good Lookout whilst ensuring the aircraft maintain the desired altitude, heading and speed.  

LOOKOUT - This is completed in two stages, beginning with the Right hemisphere.  Look as deep into your 5 o’clock as you can and scan fully up and down whilst progressing you Lookout back to the ahead.  

ATTITUDE - Whilst looking ahead assess you aircraft‘s attitude to the horizon.  Ensure it remain where you desired.  

INSTRUMENTS - Check that this attitude is maintain your chosen flight path by checking the instruments:

  • Attitude Indicator (AI) - Check the AI matches your attitude.  
  • Altimeter - Either Barometric Altimeter (BarAlt) or Radar Altimeter (RadAlt) - Are you on height.
  • Rate of Climb or Decent Indicator (RCDI) - Is it reading zero.
  • Airspeed Indicator (ASI) - Are you on your chosen speed.  
  • Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI - Compass) - Are you on heading.

Limitation, Operation, Indication

A method of ensuring aircraft limitations are not exceeded when changing aircraft configuration.  

LIMITATION - Before operating any control that will change the configuration of the aircraft like the Flaps, check that the aircraft is within the limitations for that configuration change.  

OPERTION - Select the new configuration.  

INDICATION - Check that the configuration change has been successful by the control indicator.  

E.g. If the Landing Gear speed limitation is 175 kts the process is:

  • Speed below 175
  • Select Gear Down
  • Gear Travelling .... Three Greens
