c. Watch Bills. IMSs shall not be included on watch bills.
IMSs can not be held responsible or disciplined for their
actions while standing watch. Also, requiring IMS to stand
watch may cause a delay in training at the expense of the IMS's
home country. Assistant Runway Duty Officer (ARDO) duty for an
IMS has proven to be an effective way to improve IMS landing
pattern performance as is not considered watch. Any curriculum
tools used to correct substandard IMS performance, such as
Student Monitoring Status (SMS), test remediation, extra
instruction authorized in the curriculum, or by this manual, are
applied to improve IMS performance and are not considered watch.
d. Discipline. IMSs are not subject to punishment under the
Uniform Code of Military Justice and shall not be subject to
restraint or detention for breaches of discipline except where
necessary to prevent bodily harm to themselves or others. Flight
training students shall be required to comply with the
regulations, orders, instructions, and customs of the NATRACOM
insofar as they are appropriate and applicable under the
circumstances and consistent with the laws and regulations of the
government of the Parent Party. See SECNAVINST 4950.4A Chapter
