Program your new approach right away

Sometimes it’s easy to forget even the simplest things, even though they may be the most important of things to do.

Say you are inbound to Philadelphia International and are tuned to the ILS for runway 09R. You contact approach, and halfway through, approach switches you to 09L, on an ILS approach.

Assuming you were already tuned to the ILS frequency for 09R, what you should do as soon as you can is get the simple yet important thing out of the way and tune to the ILS frequency for 09L.

Reduce your workload and get the simple things out of the way so you’re not overwhelmed later.
