Once the population has been determined for the given month, a
student's PAS can be calculated at any time during the month by
using the formula given the student's score and the number of
a. Syllabus Progression. Fly syllabus events within each
stage sequentially, except for I42 block, which may be flown in
any order. Do not start a block without all prerequisites.
Students may be in different stages or blocks simultaneously.
Where applicable, students will be eligible for, and shall be
prepared for, more than one syllabus event. Students must
complete all events. The flowchart on page I-5 delineates the
sequence of flying events and their ground training
prerequisites. System training management is designed to
facilitate two graded events (flight, simulator, or exam) per
student per day.
b. Accelerated Progression. Under exceptional
circumstances, a student's previous flight experience or
demonstrated proficiency may warrant accelerated progression.
The Squadron Commander may advance the student to the next block
of instruction when all required items for the current block of
instruction meet End of Block (EOB) MIF. This policy is not to
be used to accelerate squadron production goals. It is strictly
for the rare instances where the student's demonstrated
proficiency makes completion of all events within a block of
instruction unnecessary. For example, pipeline reassignment
Instrument Phase based on previous instrument training. All
records for the accelerated student, including the ATJ and mini-
ATJ, will be clearly marked ACCELERATED PROGRESSION. ATFs for
the events not flown will be completed with a note in the
remarks section stating "ACCELERATED PROGRESSION SORTIE NOT
FLOWN. ATF COMPLETED FOR ADMINISTRATIVE PURPOSES ONLY IAW
previously introduced maneuvers frequently enough to ensure
maintaining required proficiency.
d. Hours/X (H/X). Instructor pilots (IPs) shall plan and
execute missions to meet H/X as closely as practical. If actual
sortie length varies from H/X by more than .3 hours, annotate
reason(s) in ATF's general comments section.
