Participating squadron personnel.
b. Interpretation. The syllabus is directive. Should
circumstances create situations not covered within the scope of
this syllabus, or course of action appears to conflict with other
directives, consult CNATRA (N31).
Document all deviations on the sortie's
d. Changes. Recommended changes shall be submitted in
accordance with (IAW) CNATRAINST 1550.6D.
e. Syllabus Description. The syllabus is divided into
stages; the stages are grouped by like flight training regimes
such as Contact, Instrument, Formation, and Navigation flights.
Each stage is subdivided into training blocks. The training
blocks consist of a specified number of flights. Course Training
Standards (CTS) are modified by the Maneuver Item Files (MIF) to
identify the acceptable level of performance, which must be
achieved at the completion of each training block.
a. Syllabus Progression. Fly sorties within each stage
sequentially, except as noted. Do not start a block without all
prerequisites. IUTs may be in different stages simultaneously.
Where applicable, IUTs shall be prepared, and will be eligible,
for both a VFR (Contact or Formation) and an IFR (Instrument)
syllabus event. IUTs must complete all events. System training
management is designed to facilitate two graded events (flight,
simulator, or exam) per IUT per day.
b. Maneuver Continuity. IUTs must accomplish previously
introduced maneuvers frequently enough to ensure required
proficiency is maintained.
c. H/X. Standardization Instructor pilots (SIs) shall plan
and execute missions to meet H/X as closely as practical. If
actual sortie length varies from H/X by more than 0.3 hrs,
annotate reason(s) in ITF's general comment section.
