(5) Regression Rules. Regression rules allow for uneven
progress through training. The following specifies allowable
(a) The student is allowed up to two maneuver grades
of F/3 where a G/4 is required, and:
The student has previously demonstrated G/4
2. The maneuver was not a check ride/safe-for-
solo critical (+) item.
3. The IP is satisfied the student is ready to
progress to the next sortie.
(b) The IP must award an overall unsatisfactory if:
Regression was to a U/2 where F/3 or G/4 is
2. Performance on the same maneuver for two
consecutive sorties resulted in an F/3 where a G/4 is required,
3. There was regression on more than two items.
(6) Maneuver Requirements.
For each block:
(a) Mandatory Items. Items with a number and a plus
(+) are mandatory and the student must meet the required
proficiency by EOB. When a maneuver is performed multiple times
in a block of training, the last grade assigned for the maneuver
will determine if the student meets EOB MIF.
(b) Optional Items. Items with a number, but
without a plus (+), are optional. However, if flown, the
student must meet the required proficiency by EOB.
(c) Not Demonstrated/Not Performed.
The IP will not
demonstrate, nor will the student perform:
Items not in the stage.
