Airways Navigation stage consists of three late stage Airways
Navigation events (AN-12SX, AN-13X, and AN-14).
2. 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-level route structure or in designated restricted areas.
During multiplane flights, additional emphasis shall be placed on
introducing the student to realistic simulated enroute attacks.
Because simulated enroute attacks are prohibited when carrying
ordnance, multiplane flights shall not be combined with any

ONFP-03X), Operational Navigation simulators and flights
(ON-01S through ON-08X).
Students shall not be scheduled for other events

Students must fly five different routes during ON-04
SNA is required to complete five original ONAV charts,
simulator and aircraft combined, during single-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
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.
