control, scan, corrections, accuracy, and pattern.
Includes: Weapons Flight Procedures (WEPFP-01 through
WEPFP-05X), Emergency Procedures simulator (EP-10S), and Weapons
simulators and flights (WEP-01S through WEP-16).
WEP-07 must be flown as a 4-plane.
Flight leads must manage WEP-07 so students are able to

Either WEP-09 or WEP-10X shall be flown as a 4-plane.

Students must fly at least seven off-target rendezvous
during the Weapons syllabus.
Circular Error Probability (CEP) on WEP flights shall be
graded as follows:
Average CEP for WEP-09 through 11 is 125-225 feet.
Average CEP for WEP-12 through 15 is 100-200 feet.
Average CEP for WEP-09 through 15 is 100-200 feet.
A CEP of less than 200 feet must be achieved on one of
the following flights: WEP-11, 12, or 13. Failure to do
so will result in a flight down (unsatisfactory).
Grading criteria may be modified by Squadron CO/Det OIC
for adverse weather conditions.
