2. Highest qualification required for the mission
3. Senior pilot

IP/FE for upgrade/check rides

Active duty pilot when Civilian Contract Pilot (CPP) is assigned.

1

Warranted Risk for SAR - Preventing or Relieving Pain or Suffering

If a mission is likely to prevent or relieve intense pain or suffering, or if 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.
(1.D.2.b.(2))

2

The PIC receives clearance for flight from the _____.
This authority can be delegated no lower than _____.

When can flights be initiated without prior approval?

CO
(1.B.2)

Assigned Operations Officer
(2.C.2)

(2.C.2)

3

What is required of the PIC after a PEL?

If a PEL is made away from home station for observed or suspected aircraft malfunctions or damage, the PIC shall ensure that a proper inspection of the aircraft is conducted by competent maintenance personnel and the results reported to the home station's engineering officer or other qualified maintenance officer.

Further flight without the approval of the appropriate clearance authority is prohibited.
(minor = CO, major = COMDT)

(2.F.3)

4

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.
(1.D.2.b.(3))

5

Who has the authority to delay a mission?

Who has final responsibility for the mission?

The final decision to delay a mission may be made by either the CO or PIC when, in the opinion of either individual, conditions are not safe to start or continue a mission.

Final responsibility for the safe conduct of the mission rests with the PIC. Another PIC and crew shall not be assigned to take the same mission under the same conditions without the specific approval of the CO of the aviation unit to which the PIC is assigned. This authority may not be delegated.

(2.F.2.d)

6

What is required for preflight planning?

TODD

8

Warranted Risk for SAR - Saving Human Life

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

Probable loss of the aircrew is not an acceptable risk.
(1.D.2.b.(1))
