3. Cross-cheek the performance instruments to determine
if the established attitude or power setting is providing
the desired performance. The cross-cheek involves
both seeing and interpreting. If a deviation is noted,
determine the magnitude and direction of adjustment
required to achieve the desired performance.

4. Adjust the attitude and/or power setting on the control
instruments as necessary.

Aircraft Control During Instrument Flight

Attitude Control
Proper control of aircraft attitude is the result of proper use
of the attitude indicator, knowledge of when to change the
attitude, and then smoothly changing the attitude a precise
amount. The attitude reference provides an immediate, direct,
and corresponding indication of any change in aircraft pitch
or bank attitude.
