INS ALIGNMENT PROCESS

a) On PSM (Poste Sélecteur de Modes = Mode Selector Panel), set INS mode to ALN (Alignment) to start alignment procedure of inertial systems.

b) Open up your kneeboard using “RSHIFT+K” and cycle through pages using the “[“ and “]” (kneeboard previous/next page bindings) to find the PILOT SIGNOUT SHEET and the aircraft’s initial position.

c) In our case, our initial position is 42:52.12 North for Latitude and 041:07.28 East for Longitude, with an airport elevation of 15 meters.

d) On PCN (Poste de Commande de Navigation = Navigation Control Panel), set INS parameter selector to L/G.

e) Press “1” (+) button on keypad to select Latitude field

f) Press “2” (North) button on keypad to select North

g) Enter “425212” on keypad and press “INS” (Insert) button to enter the aircraft latitude coordinates (42:52.12 North) as specified on kneeboard. If you made a mistake, press the EFF (Effacer/Erase) button.

h) Press “3” (+) button on keypad to select Longitude field

i) Press “6” (East) button on keypad to select East

j) Enter “0410728” on keypad and press “INS” (Insert) button to enter the aircraft latitude coordinates (041:07.28 East). as specified on kneeboard. If you made a mistake, press the EFF (Effacer/Erase) button.

k) On PCN (Poste de Commande de Navigation = Navigation Control Panel), set INS parameter selector to ALT (Altitude).

l) Press “1” (+) button two times consecutively on keypad to select Altitude field

m) Enter “00015” as the airport elevation (15 meters). Don’t forget to add enough zeroes to have the right data format. Press “INS” (Insert) button to enter the aircraft. If you made a mistake, press the EFF (Effacer/Erase) button.

n) Press VAL button to validate data entry of the MIP (Module d’Insertion de Paramètres = Data Cartridge InsertionModule).

o) Set INS operation mode to “STS” (Status) to monitor remaining alignment time.
• First alignment phase Class 4 (Coarse Alignment) will last 4 minutes.
• Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth alignment phases (Precision alignment) will last another 4 minutes.
• Total alignment process should take 8 min.

p) A yellow ALN (Alignment) caution will blink during the first alignment phase (Class 4, coarse alignment).

q) “PRÊT” (Ready) caution will blink when first alignment phase is complete after 4 minutes.

r) “PRÊT” (Ready) caution will remain illuminated when all remaining phases are complete after another 4 minutes.

s) Set INS operation mode to “N” (Normal) when alignment phase is complete and set INS mode selector to “NAV”. This step can be done right before you start taxiing.

NOTE: During the alignment phase, you can enter or modify waypoint entries at the same time.
