1.Taxi to the runway by using rudder pedals and toe brakes. Make sure your nosewheel steering (DIRAV) is engaged when taxiing
2.Once lined up on the runway, disengage nosewheel steering (DIRAV).
3.Hold Brakes, and apply 100% Throttle to check if engine spools up correctly and if TT7 is within safe range.
4.Apply Full throttle (with Post Combustion / Afterburner)
5.Rotate at 120 kts
6.Retract landing gear before you reach 260 kts
1.Adjust seat height
2.Select APPROACH mode on PCA (yellow “S” caution when engaged)
3.Deploy landing gear below 230 kts
4.Keep flight path marker where you want to touchdown
5.Line up flight path marker and acceleration chevrons within the “glide slope” brackets by adjusting throttle and stick
6.During touchdown, release stick to maintain your Angle of Attack and bleed speed in the process (your delta wing will act as a huge airbrake)
7.Apply brakes when you slowed down under 100 kts and push your nose down
8. Engage Nosewheel Steering (DIRAV) when you slowed down under 40 kts
