Flashcards in TACTICAL NAVIGATION / LAT / THREAT REACTION MANEUVERING Deck (19):
1

What is LAT?

the briefed intent to conduct tactical flight where terrain avoidance is a significant factor.

intent to fly below 500 ft AGL

2

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

3

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

4

Can you achieve MAC in a turn?

No. Only achieved in a wings-level descent, never in a turn

5

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

6

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

7

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

8

What are the weather minimums for tacnav?

Visibility shall be 5 miles or more

Ceiling shall not be less than 3,000 ft

9

What should you squawk on a VR route? on an SR route?

VR - 4000

SR - 1200

10

How far should you avoid airports on a tacnav?

within 1500 ft AGL or 3 NM

11

How far should you avoid cities and populated areas on a tacnav?

by 3 miles if below 2500 ft AGL

12

How far should you avoid MOAs/restricted airspace when on a tacnav (if you don't have clearance)?

3 NM

13

How far should you avoid flying over noise sensitive areas?

below 3000 ft AGL

14

How far should you avoid nuclear power plants on a tacnav?

5 NM

15

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

16

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.

17

The time of each leg on a tacnav should not exceed how long?

10 minutes

18

What airspeeds should you plan to fly on a training tacnav? in combat?

-240 planned, 210 minimum

-per mission requirements

19

What fuel burn should you assume on a tacnav?

6000 lbs/hour
