Flashcards in TACTICAL NAVIGATION / LAT / THREAT REACTION MANEUVERING Deck (19):
What is LAT?
the briefed intent to conduct tactical flight where terrain avoidance is a significant factor.
intent to fly below 500 ft AGL
What is the difference between KNOCK IT OFF and TERMINATE?
KNOCK IT OFF - will stop an entire exercise for all who hear it
TERMINATE - should be used during exercises to stop local engagements or terminate LAT flight
What is comfort level?
lowest altitude at which an aircrew can accomplish both terrain clearance tasking (TCT) and mission tasking (MT)
a perceptual concept, never a hard altitude
Can you achieve MAC in a turn?
No. Only achieved in a wings-level descent, never in a turn
What will all aircraft do when KNOCK IT OFF or TERMINATE is called?
will roll wings level and establish climb-to-cope to a prebriefed altitude
When will aircrew call KNOCK IT OFF or TERMINATE?
Any a/c descends below the minimum prebriefed altitude
any a/c descends in a turn
any a/c becomes NORDO
loss of situational awareness
What is MAC (Minimum Altitude Capable)?
an altitude below the comfort level flown solely as a defensive response.
aircrew prioritizes TCT above all over tasks to attain lowest possible altitude
What are the weather minimums for tacnav?
Visibility shall be 5 miles or more
Ceiling shall not be less than 3,000 ft
What should you squawk on a VR route? on an SR route?
VR - 4000
SR - 1200
How far should you avoid airports on a tacnav?
within 1500 ft AGL or 3 NM
How far should you avoid cities and populated areas on a tacnav?
by 3 miles if below 2500 ft AGL
How far should you avoid MOAs/restricted airspace when on a tacnav (if you don't have clearance)?
How far should you avoid flying over noise sensitive areas?
below 3000 ft AGL
How far should you avoid nuclear power plants on a tacnav?
How do you compute ESA?
adding 1000 ft (2000 in mountainous terrain) to the elevation of the highest obstacle or terrain feature within 25 NM of the route
How do you compute MSA?
adding 1000 ft to the elevation of the highest obstacle or terrain feature within 5 NM of the particular route leg.
The time of each leg on a tacnav should not exceed how long?
What airspeeds should you plan to fly on a training tacnav? in combat?
-240 planned, 210 minimum
-per mission requirements
