Flashcards in OPNAV CH 8- Aeromedical and Survival Deck (14):

Anti-Exposure Suits

- Final Determination made by CO or OIC
- Decision based on mission, temperature, environmental factors, SAR

- Latest Anti-exposure suits shall be made available to personnel when in the event of a mishap, there is significant risk of water entry if:
1) Water temp below 50 C
2) OAT based of wind chill is < 32 F


Helmet Tape

- 30 square inches of light colored reflective tape
- White tape shall be visible on all sides


Oxygen Requirements

- In an unpressurized cabin aircraft without oxygen available, it must be determined that it is mission essential for flight altitude to exceed 10000 ft. Time above 10000 shall not exceed 1 hr, and never exceed 12000.


Flight Time Limits

Day: 12 hours
Week: 50
Month: 100
Quarter: 265
Year: 960


Instrument Rating Requirements

Year: 12 Precision/6 Non precision/ 12 hours

Within 6 months: 6 Precision, 6 Non precision/6 hours

Simulator can be used for half of all your requirements

Initial: 50 flight hours and initial instrument check


Actual vs Simulated Conditions
Actual vs Simulated Approach

Actual – conditions external to aircraft in flight that do not permit visual reference to horizon

Simulated – conditions external to aircraft in flight are VMC, but pilot vision is limited primarily to interior

Actual instrument approach – when actual instrument conditions are encountered below 1000 ft above airport during instrument approach

Simulated instrument approach – an instrument approach flown under simulated conditions

*Only pilot exercising principal active control during the approach may be credited with that approach


Taxi Instructions

- Clearance to taxi authorizes aircraft to cross all runways/taxiways except the active
- Shalll read back all hold/hold short instuctions


Officer in Tactical Command

- Senior Officer Present Eligible to assume command, or the officer to which he has delegated tactical command, can declare it
- Always push up the chain


Deviation from OPNAV

- In tactical environment, military exigency may require may require on sight deviations
- Deviation from specified flight and operating instructions is authorized in emergency situations in which the PIC judges safety requires such a deviation.


Flight Definition

When aircraft commences taxi and ends when rotors are disengaged or stationary for 5 minutes with rotors engaged


Purchasing Non Contract Fuel

1) Mission Requirement dictates stopping at facility without military/contract fuel
2) Flight terminates as a result of an emergency
3) Flight Terminates at alternate in lieu of destination


Helicopter Second Pilot

In addition to being designated a helicopter pilot, a helicopter second pilot shall:

A) Have pilot hours in class and model as required by the Commanding Officer or higher authority, and demonstrate proficiency in the following:

1) Ground Handling
2) Flight technique during normal and Emergency procedures, including auto-rotation and the use of floatation gear
3) Navigation (all types applicable to unit mission and model)
4) Tactical employment of the aircraft and associated equipment in all tasks of the unit mission
5) Night tactical operations and operational instrument flying within the capability of the model

2) Possess Valid Instrument Rating
3) Complete NATOPS evaluation in model
4) Demonstrate Knowledge through written and/or oral exam in:
Model AC and equipment, Unit mission and Tactics, Flight maneuvers weight and balance, NATOPS
Fleet/Tactical Instructions
Flight Planning
First Aid

1) Satisfactorily complete the MH-60S FRS syllabus or equivalent CNO approved syllabus
2) Satisfactorily complete an approved MH-60S approved H2P syllabus
3) Meet the H2P specific OPNAV mins


Minimum Fuel vs Emergency Fuel

-Minimum Fuel: Advisory term indicating that the fuel state is such that no undue delay can be accepted
- Emergency Fuel: If at any point the remaining fuel supply requires priority handling to ensure safe landing


H2P Own Words

Back up the HAC, have thorough knowledge of aircraft systems and flight regulations in order to assist decision making and ensure compliance of rules
