Self-preparation and study time for academic and flight
support may include audio-visual training aids.
*** Additional training time per curriculum hour
a. Administrative Time. Transit time from activity to
activity, meals, scheduling delays and military watch standing
duties are not considered. The student training week is based
upon 6 hours of training per day, 5 days a week (30 hours).
Computation of curriculum time is based on the following
Additional training time per curriculum hour or event
Total curriculum time
ch + (ch x k) or (e x k)
= Tc (days) or (weeks)
6 (hrs per day) or 30 (hrs per week)
The Tc calculated is the total contact time required to complete
the phase of training.
b. Time to Train (Tt). The following factors are
considered in computing time-to-train: weather, unsatisfactory
events, associated delays, medical grounding, and flights or
simulator events canceled due to lack of instructor or equipment
availability. The combination of these factors constitutes
additional time (∆t) required to train expressed as a percentage
of the curriculum time (Tc). The ∆t for the T-45C Digital Total
System (TS) Strike Flight Training Curriculum is 20.0 percent.
The formula for computing time-to-train (Tt) is as follows:
Tc + (Tc
∆t) = Tt
