Standard Callouts & their Purpose?

There are 4 purposes of standard callouts. They are to provide and share information relating to: AS IF!

  • Altitude, position or speed
  • Significant deviation in flight path, speed or descent rates
  • Information to aid in judgement for making a landing or a missed approach
  • Flight and navigation instruments and autopilot system status

Standard callouts also serve the objective of:

  • To confirm information on altitude, position, speed and system status which does not require crew action
  • To enhance crew coordination, common recognition and fail safe functions
  • "10,000ft" To notify the PF of 250kts below 10,000ft
  • "5,000ft" To notify the PF that the maximum speed is now 300kts and the maximum rate of descent is 2,500 ft/m

The standard significant deviations on approach are:

  • G/S: More than one dot
  • LOC: More than 1/2 dot (more than 1 dot on the expanded scale)
    • More than 1/3 dot on normal scale (1/2 a dot on the expanded scale) after the "APPROACHING MINIMUM" callout CAT11/111
  • Sink rate: More than 1,000 ft./min below 1,000ft AGL
  • Airspeed: Above 10kts or less than 5kts from bug target speed below 1,000ft AGL with landing flap
  • AOM 3-1 (10) / AOR 2-1-9 (1)"
