Instrument pilots must think ahead, one event at a time, and consider everything to be done, and it helps to employ a specific tool. I use an old mnemonic in whole new way. The five T’s: TURN, TIME, TWIST, THROTTLE and TALK. I use them as a mechanism for thinking in front of the airplane, as a way to think deeply about the next event. Because it’s not a secret in instrument flying that if you can effectively get your mind in front of the airplane and think through the next event before you get there you will catch most, if not all, of your mistakes before they occur.
