ET setup radio call
Viking next set extended trail level 1 for 2
Begin ET radio call
Texan 2 go ET level 1
Time between break for landing
Number 1 lands on which side of the runway
Formation touchdown zone
1000 feet down runway
Formation go around
Number 1 adds power to approximately 75 percent
Interval takeoff abort
2 aborts if below abort speed but continues takeoff if above abort speed
Number 1 directs formation abort with radio call "Texan Flight, abort abort abort"
NORDO aircraft takes number 2. NORDO get attention by rocking wings in the air
Diversion signal when NORDO
flash pink pages
When may 2 report same after ops check
within 50 lbs and .5 G
When may 2 report same on bullseye check
within 1 mile and 3 degrees
NORDO visual signal
wave hand in front of ear or mouth
NORDO deconfliction plan
1 takes LOA (lower, odd, a sector) 2 takes HEB (higher, even, b sector)
May formation sorties continue with an intercom failure?
Yes but only the IP may fly
May formation members change from AUX before shutdown?
VFR pattern wingman position
outside of all turns
Visual signal prior to executing break
pitchout and 5 fingers
3 leaves each side with a crossunder
180 degree turn
one straight ahead and one turning, when rejoin directed from ET 2 goes to the 3 position
two delayed 90 degree turns
Formation cross wind limit
Formation minimum runway width
Minimum ceiling and visibility for formation wing takeoff
500 feet 1.5 miles or circling mins, whichever is higher
Formation takeodf runway must be clear of
standing water, ice, slush, and snow
When must formations accomplish an interval takeoff?
whenever calculated torque at 60 is less than 85
Interval takeoff ceiling and vis requirement
1500 and 3
minimum altitude for lead change
Interval takeoff runway width requirement
Are formation touch and go wing landings permitted?
May solo students fly wing landings?
May solo students fly wing takeoffs?
When should you call KIO
dangerous situation, SA is lost, area boundary, minimum cloud separation, minimum altitude, minimum range, over G or over speed, radio failure (continuous wing rock), bingo fuel, traffic in the area, bubble or 3/9 line breached in ET
When to call terminate
Bingo fuel, desired learning objectives met, aircraft is out of position, any player calls terminate
ET minimum altitude
May formations enter the pattern from vfr entry points?
Who makes the in the break call for formation overheads?
the last wingman
Lead min power setting in fingertip on recovery
3 times to terminate
1. learning objectives accomplished. 2. reaching joker/bingo. 3. number 2 is outside formation parameters
can you go over the top without 2 in sight?
lowest altitude you can reach on formation low approach
formation missed approach
lost wingman turns away, ensures separation, continues the MA procedure a flies 500 feet above MA altitude
Times to breakout
Sight, Hazard, In front, Told to
What should 2 squawk on instrument trail departure?
What should 1 call out during instrument trail departure?
Even altitudes and when clear of the weather
When should 2 assume stack level position on recovery?
assume stack level no later than
1/2 mile from the end of runway
Formation abandon approach
fly the normal ground track but split the formation
Maximum separation outside of MOA
6000 feet horizontal and 100 feet vertical
min power setting while not in fingertip on recovery
Trick question 0%
How should you treat the aircraft while flying formation?
Like the dirty whore who wants to get fucked that she is
What are the three times the number 1 position should be offered after an emergency?
1. when the emergency occurs. 2. on recovery when below the weather anf able to navigate VFR to the field. 3. when on final with the field in sight
