Flashcards in 3710.1G Abbreviated Deck (35):

Warranted risk for Search and Rescue: Saving Human Life warrants:

If a mission is likely to save a human life, it warrants a maximum effort.


When is the risk of damage to or abuse of the aircraft acceptable? (Saving Human Life)

When no suitable alternative exists and the mission has a reasonable chance of success, the risk of damage to or abuse of the aircraft is acceptable, even though such damage or abuse may render the aircraft unrecoverable.


What is not considered an acceptable risk IRT Warranted Risk-Saving Human Life?

Probable loss of the aircrew is not an acceptable risk.


Warranted Risk for SAR- Preventing or Relieving Pain or Suffering:

If a mission is likely to prevent or relieve intense pain or suffering, or it may result in the possibility of saving human life, it warrants the risk of damage to or abuse of the aircraft if recovering the aircraft can be reasonably expected.


Warranted Risk for SAR- Saving Property

If a mission is likely to save property of the United States or its citizens, it warrants the risk of damage to the aircraft if the value of the property to be saved is unquestionably greater than the cost of aircraft damage and the aircraft is fully expected to be recoverable.


Who may authorize a Forcible Evacuation of a vessel?

Normally made by the cognizant SAR Coordinator (District/Area Commander or their rep)

If time does not allow, the OSC may make the order but must notify the SMC and SC immediately.


Incidents that require the SMC to be at the District RCC level or above are:

(1) Initial action for cases involving ELT and EPIRB, HF-DSC, and Inmarsat alerts;
(2) Cases outside the U.S. SRR where a Coast Guard RCC is carrying out the duties of “first RCC”
(3) Cases extending into multiple Sector AORs


Who has the authority to authorize flights?

The air station Commanding Officer (signs flight schedule). This authority can be delegated no lower than OPS.

For SAR, can backfill the authorization ASAP.


PIC Responsibilities:

Responsible for the safe, orderly, efficient and effective performance of the aircraft, aircrew, and passengers during the entire mission.


When does the PIC's responsibility begin and end?

From the time the PIC first enters the aircraft with intent for flight, until leaving it upon completion of the mission.


PIC hierarchy is normally:

Senior pilot holding highest designation in type and model. If both hold same designation, the PIC is the pilot holding the highest qualification required for the mission.

If both pilots have the same designation and qualification, the senior pilot is PIC.


The final responsibility for the safe conduct of the mission rests with:



If a precautionary emergency landing is made away from home station for observed or suspected aircraft malfunction or damage:

The PIC SHALL ensure that a proper inspection is made by COMPETENT MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL


The results are reported to the unit EO or other qualifies maintenance officer.


Further flight authorization rests with _____ for Minor Malfunctions and Non-Structural or Cosmetic Damage.

The Commanding Officer


Further flight authorization rests with _____ for Major Malfunctions and Actual or Suspected Structural Damage.

The Commandant (CG-711) with technical concurrence from Commandant (CG-41).


Rotary-wing fuel reserve requirement

At least that required for 20 minutes of flight after reaching the alternate.
In any case, at least 10 percent more than that required to reach the alternate airfield via the destination. (Not really applicable to 65)


Generally, an AC shall be assigned as the PIC for:

Difficult or unusual missions
All intercept and AUF missions
On flights scheduled to carry passengers.


Min pilot assignment requirement for Daylight VMC:

An AC or an FP.


Min pilot assignment requirement for night VMC:

An AC and a CP or two FPs. When mission urgency dictates, CO may authorize an AC alone.


Min pilot assignment requirement for day IMC:

An AC and CP or two FPs.


Min pilot assignment requirement for night IMC:

Trick question-

AC and CP or two FPs.


Min pilot assignment requirement for maintenance flights:



Min pilot assignment requirement for Ferry Flight

At least an AC and CP. AC only if in day VMC in normal AOR or point to point in one sortie.


Rotary-wing single-pilot flight SCHEDULING limits (individual flight hours and crew mission hours)

6 Individual Flight Hours
12 Crew Mission Hours


Basic bag limit and rest requirement (Rotary Wing)

6.0+ flight time, 10+ hour crew day but less than 7.0/11 require 10 hours off duty.


Flight time of more than 6.9 but less than 8.0 requires _____ hours off duty.

12 hours off duty


When the aircraft must be left away from a military unit, the PIC shall:

Take adequate measures to ensure the safety and security of the aircraft and its equipment.


A new 24-hour flight period will begin:

After 10 hours of rest, regardless of duty status.


Crew mission time will continue to accrue on deck if:

Adequate crew rest facilities are not available between sorties.


Takeoff mins:

1/2 statue mile for non-operational missions

1/4 statue mile for operational missions


Sterile cockpit phases:

"AA Habit"

Any checklists

Hover operations
All ground OPS involving aircraft movement
Below 300' during app or de from hover
IFR - 1000' prior to assigned altitude

In regards to automation, pilots should use:

The highest level appropriate for the situation.


Can you (FP) conduct simulated instrument training?

Yes, with another pilot qualified in type.


Flight verification minimum pilot assignment:

No special restrictions for flight v's.
