PAS-NSS = 50 + 10(PAS-M4)/S4
M4 Average PAS
S4 Standard Deviation of PAS
Once the population has been determined for the given month, a
student's PAS and PAS-NSS can be calculated at any time during
the month by using the formulas, given the Student's Score,
Academic Grade, and the number of graded items.
h. Accelerated Students. Students with prior flight time,
excluding Naval Flight Officer Introductory Flight Screening
(NIFS) or NIFS equivalent, shall be considered accelerated.
During the accelerated period, the student may progress to the
next block of training once MIF is met within the current block
of training. Squadron commanding officers have the authority to
tailor the student's accelerated syllabus based on the student's
past flying experience.
a. Syllabus Progression. Fly syllabus events within each
stage sequentially. Do not start a block without all
prerequisites. Students may be in different stages
simultaneously. Where applicable, students shall be prepared,
and will be eligible, for both a VFR (Contact/Navigation/
Formation) and an Instrument syllabus event. Students must
complete all events. System training management is designed to
facilitate two graded events (flight, simulator, or exam) per
student per day.
previously introduced maneuvers frequently enough to ensure
maintaining required proficiency.
c. 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 0.3 hrs, annotate reason(s)
in ATF's general comments section.
d. Special Syllabus Requirements. SSRs are allocated to
flights. Unless noted otherwise, IPs may accomplish SSRs on any
flight within the block. SSRs shall be completed in the
specified block. Annotate completed SSRs in the ATF's SSR
comments section. Assign NG/1 as the SSR maneuver grade.
e. Aviation Training Jacket (ATJ) Reviews. Class Advisors
(CAs), Flight Leaders, or Assistant Flight Leaders will conduct
jacket reviews at least monthly. SMS students require weekly ATJ
