A thru G for Diversions

I’m not sure where this originated, but this is a helpful reference for handling diversions.  When it becomes obvious that you are going to have to divert, remember your alphabet, particularly A thru G:

A – Airport— Where do we need to go?

B – Best guess on your heading (refine it in a minute)

C – Clock –Start your time

D – Distance –How far is it?

E – ETA and groundspeed –When will I arrive, what is my groundspeed?

F – Fuel –Do I have enough to make it?

G – Ground –Call someone on the ground to make change in plan (ATC, FSS etc)

This little checklist can be a great help when you’re in a pinch and need to make a change of plans!
