(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,
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.
Weather-driven instrument approaches.
Prebriefed maneuvers for IP proficiency.
(7) Incomplete Sorties. In general, IPs should consider
a sortie complete if able to accomplish the requirements in
paragraph (a) below. This is particularly true when weather
precludes accomplishing certain maneuver items, but the IP is
able to emphasize training on other maneuver items. Subsequent
sorties in the block, when available, can reverse this emphasis,
hence achieving overall training balance. If a student has had
ample opportunity to learn a task and subsequently flies a short
mission, do not incomplete the mission solely to provide
unwarranted extra training.
