runway in use and, when over the airfield, will rock their wings (day) or flash their landi
ng light
(night) to indicate lost communications to the Tower. If there is no operating Control Tower,
overfly the field, determine the runway in use, and enter the down
-
wind cautiously in order to
make a safe landing. Continue making radio calls in the
blind in case the transmitter is working
although the radio receiver may be inoperable. Traffic permitting, the turn down

704. Recommended Operating Pra
ctices

The following list of recommended operating procedures, while not mandatory, is highly
encouraged. They represent prudent operations of civilian aircraft.


a. Conducting VFR flight in Class D surface areas when visibilities are 3
-
4 statute miles i
n not
recommended.


b. Filing and flying an IFR flight plan in VMC is recommended. For pilots without an
instrument rating, taking full advantage of navigation aids, flying at or above the IFR MEA
(minimum enroute altitude), and using Flight Following is

recommended.


c. Execute gentle turns during climbs and descents to assist in keeping visually cleat of other
traffic.


d. When flying in high
-
wing aircraft, pilots should momentarily raise the wing to visually clear
the area before turning. When flyin
g low
-
wing aircraft, pilots should momentarily raise the sing
before turning. When flying in high
-
wing aircraft use extreme caution when climbing as
visibility is obstructed and low
-
wing aircraft cannot see them approaching. Likewise, pilots of
low
-
wing
aircraft should exercise extreme caution when descending as visibility is restricted and
pilots of high
-
win aircraft cannot see them when approaching.


e. Avoid flight through parachute jump areas.


f. When flying twin
-
engine aircraft do not plan IFR fli
ght in areas where the minimum enroute
altitude exceeds the single
-
engine service ceiling.


g. Performance data listed in the aircraft manual is often unrealistic; give yourself plenty of
margin above the recommended figures.


h. Use of IFR preferred rou
ting is encouraged.


i. Aircraft landing lights should be ON during flight unless they interfere with pilot visibility.

-
eligible students on their own. In cases where the
Course Director has no Active List Instructor available to train a new student, an available

Reserve List Instructor may be assigned the student. A Reserved list Instructor who recruits a
student will advise the appropriate Course Director immediately and will maintain the
appropriate training records. The Inactive Eligible List consists of tho
se Inactive or Reserve
Instructors who meet all requirements to instruct with exceptions of currency as defined below.
Instructors may be placed on the Inactive Eligible list upon written notification by the Chief
Flight Instructor.
