OPERATIONAL NAVIGATION AND WEAPONS
1. Operational Navigation Stage. Introduce the student to the
principles of VFR navigation with emphasis on low-level
navigation, ground feature recognition, low altitude flying
safety and precise cruise control techniques. Simulated pop-up
attacks on single-plane ONAV flights shall only be performed by
qualified fleet IPs within the confines of the designated low-
multi-plane flights, additional emphasis shall be placed on
introducing the student to realistic simulated en route attacks.
Because simulated en route attacks are prohibited when carrying
ordnance, multi-plane flights shall not be combined with any
Includes: ONAV Ground School (ONAV-01 through ONAV-06X),
Operational Navigation Flight Procedures (ONFP-01 through
ONFP-04X), and Operational Navigation simulators and flights
(ON-01S through ON-08X). This module also includes two late
stage Airways Navigation events (AN-12SX and AN-13) and one Night
Familiarization flight (NFAM-05).
Students shall not be scheduled for other events while
in ONAV Ground School.
Students must fly five different routes during ON-04
SNA is required to complete 5 original ONAV charts,
simulator and aircraft combined, during 1-plane ONAVs.
The SNA is authorized to copy the original chart for the
IP on those flights. These five ONAV charts can be a
combination of either hand-made or computer generated
Students must have a minimum of 24 hours notice prior to
each previously unplanned ONAV event for preflight
All ONAV routes should be flown at 360 knots.
All ONAV routes may be flown as legs of a cross-country.
T-45C only. ON-04 and 05 are DR navigation flights.
ON-06, 07, and 08 are system navigation flights. This
does not eliminate the requirement for chart
