(7) CQ ATFs shall be completed for all flight events as
follows: FCLP-03X, FCLP-04 through FCLP-11X (1 ATF), CQ-03
through CQ-15X (1 ATF), and CQ-16X (1 ATF).
(8) All solo flights that are shotgunned will be graded
by the flight lead and shall be annotated "SHOTGUNNED" on the
student's ATF. Shotgun instructors (weather safety pilots) will
not grade students. They will provide inputs on safety of flight
items in accordance with CNATRAINST 1500.4F.
(9) Warm-up ATFs do not have to be marked with an
unsatisfactory grade to justify an additional warm-up if the
overall performance is not up to standard. Warm-up grades are
not included in the cumulative totals, and unsatisfactory grades
do not constitute a "down" unless:
(a) The student demonstrates a flagrant safety or
flight rule violation or a dangerous tendency.
(b) The student is not safe for solo and the next
normally scheduled event is a solo flight.
b. Warm-up Criteria. Warm-up flights may be given as
necessary to regain flight proficiency after prolonged delays in
training. The following specific guidelines govern warm-up
(1) One warm-up event may be awarded (IAW paragraph b(2)
below) when there has been a delay of six (6) calendar days since
the last event. During CQ, a warm-up FCLP shall be conducted
prior to CQ periods if 72 hours have elapsed since the last FCLP
period. CQ FCLP warm-up may be solo as determined by the LSO.
(2) If the next regularly scheduled curriculum event is
a dual flight, then the event is briefed and flown as that
flight. If the student's proficiency after the delay in training
is consistent with his normal progress and warrants continuation
in the module of instruction, the flight shall be considered and
graded as a normal curriculum flight (complete). If the student
does not show normal progress, the flight shall be considered a
warm-up of the last flight event completed. If the next
regularly scheduled curriculum event is solo, the student shall
be awarded a warm-up of the last completed dual event.
(3) Instrument warm-ups shall be conducted in the
aircraft if the student's next event is an aircraft event and in
the simulator if the student's next event is a simulator event.
