Flashcards in 2T-6 Deck (28):
What is the min altitude for a lead change?
500 feet AGL
Min width for formation takeoff?
What is the min weather for formation t/o?
500 feet 1 1/2 miles or circling mins, whichever is higher
Max X Wind for Form T/O?
TOLD Conditions for Form T/O?
No standing water, ice, slush, or snow
Min Power that a Interval T/O is required?
Min power at 60 is <85% torque or less
Interval t/o width?
What are the mins for an interval t/o?
1,500 feet and 3 miles
What are the restrictions for formation landing?
X winds exceeding 15 knots
Standing water, ice, slush, or snow
<150 feet width
Weather less than 500 and 1 1/2 or published mins, whichever is higher
Are formation wing touch-and-go landings allowed?
What is the formation VMC drag maneuver?
Establish spacing for single-ship landings when conditions do not permit a formation landing. Must be pre-briefed. Min weather is 1,500 and 3. Must have VMC. Min spacing is 3,000 feet. Wingman will not fly less than final approach airspeed and s-turns will not be used to gain spacing. The latest drag point must allow for wingman to get spacing and slow down no later than 3 NM from runway.
What are the maneuver restrictions?
Fingertip - >120 knots, 90 deg bank, 2-3 G's
Route - 60 deg bank
Echelon - 60 deg bank
Close trail - modified lazy eights, >120 knots, 90 deg bank, 2-3 G's
Extended Trail - >100 knots, 2 ship only, no abrupt reversals
Practice lost wingman - VMC
Formation Low Levels, FM, and Tac Form - only 80 FTW
Restrictions for solo students?
Actual or sim instrument approaches and landings as lead or wing
Close trail as wing
Fingertip when accomplishing in-flight checks or radio changes
Practice lost wingman while on wing
ET Level 3 as wing
Formation landings (wing or lead)
Formation wing or interval takeoffs from wing
What will be briefed if IMC anticipated?
lost wingman, spatial D, and unusual attitude recoveries
When do you tell RSU which position solo is in?
Spacing for instrument trail?
What does the last a/c do in an instrument trail when airborne?
Call saying airborne
Min torque setting for recovery in fingertip?
What to perform in area in splitting in area?
How does the VOR/DME-E approach work?
Do not land in VOR/DME-E together. Fly with wingman on left. Lead will accelerate to 130. On 15, wingman proceed straight to downwind. On 33, turn left to have an extended perch w/in 1.7 NM
Do you call fuel on initial, even if only one plane is planning a full stop?
How does a breakpoint straight through work?
Inside a/c turns x wind at dep end of runway. Follow-on takes spacing unless formation around the pattern is approved by Cooter
How does a formation go-around work?
Is a second formation approach and landing attempt authorized if the first request at radar entry point was denied or the approach ended in a low approach and the approach and landing are required to complete syllabus or continuation training requirements?
- Lead asks Cooter to proceed around pattern
- Either formation goes through initial or has low approach.
- Requests straight-in from outside downwind. If denied, formation goes to overhead break
How does a formation abandon approach work?
Lead clears wingman off, makes re-entry call, climbs to 2,000, then goes to VFR re-entry point. Wingman delays climb until well clear, then climbs to 2,000, then goes to VFR point
Who is assumed lead in emergencies?
Go by card, not who has lead at the moment.
What do you include with RAPCON when declaring emergencies?
