Falke Checklist

  • A copy of the Performance Document (TBD). We’ve written this, based on figures in the Flight Manual and experience, as an educational item – especially for someone who has gliding experience but no power flying experience. Unlike gliding you are far more on your own and have more decisions to make!

  • Briefings for the various exercises. This will help to standardise you. Example – the Flight Manual recommends a 49 kts approach speed. This is fine in calm conditions when flown perfectly. Experience has shown us that using 60 kts works much better. You will lose a little through any wind gradient, and it avoids you ending up in the awkward position of trying to land with no or little spoiler.

  • Spare Nav Logs (TBD)

  • Copies of sample completed Nav Logs (TBD)

  • Suggested RT for TMG at Gransden Lodge

  • You might also find Part 4 of the FRTOL course useful, since it demonstrates the RT on a TMG flight from Sywell to Cambridge.

  • Technical notes for G-BODU

  • A copy of the planning and performance notes for G-BODU

  • The CAA Safety Sense leaflet on Piston Engine Icing. A very useful read.

  • A copy of the CAA application form to add a TMG extension to a CPL (current as of September 2021). You can use Adobe Fill and Sign (part of the free Adobe Acrobat for Mac or PC) to fill this in and send it electronically.

  • Documents to be carried - below is the legal requirement. You should find this list in G-BODU.
