Officer, Assistant Operations Officer, Flight Leader, or
Assistant Flight Leader may substitute as on-wing in the event
the student's on-wing is not available and an on-wing change is
not prudent. Substitute on-wings shall be in the student's
direct chain of command.
b. There are no other continuity requirements unless
specified by the flight leader for SMS students.
6. Break in Training Warmup Sorties (SXX86). Non-syllabus
warmup sorties compensate for breaks in training. Eligibility
is based on the number of days since the last flight or
simulator in the same stage. All warmups shall be dual and
coded as an SXX86, e.g., C4186. Warmup grades do not satisfy
block or MIF requirements and shall not be included in the
cumulative totals. A warmup sortie is not warranted between
blocks I4200 to I3100, N4000 to N4100, N4100 to N4200, N4200 to
N4300, and N4300 to N4400.
a. Warmups Between Stages. Warmup sorties shall not be
given prior to the first flight in stage unless 14 days have
elapsed since any syllabus flight or simulator event.
b. Warmup Sortie Criteria. Optional warmup sorties are
based on the student's performance. If the student's
performance meets MIF, the sortie shall count as the next
syllabus event. If a student's performance is marginal or
unsatisfactory, the flight is a warmup.

(a) The Operations Officer may direct additional
warmup aircraft or simulator/CPT events for extended breaks in
(b) Award an additional safe-for-solo flight if more
than five calendar days have elapsed without flying in the
aircraft between a check ride (SXX90) and the follow-on solo
event or more than one calendar day between C4390 and C4401.
(2) Not Safe for Solo.
If the student is not safe-for-
(a) Count the flight as a warmup due to the
student's loss of proficiency.
