(a) After each sortie, the instructor shall critique
the student's performance using cause/effect analysis,
particularly with respect to the Course Training Standards
(b) The mission's complexity and student's progress
will govern the time required for the debrief.
(c) The instructor shall provide the student with a
new ATS, and may provide a copy of the sortie's ATF.
Emergency Procedures (EP) Briefing and Training
(1) EP training builds the student's confidence in the
aircraft. The IP shall conduct emergency procedures training on
all dual aircraft sorties, either on the ground or in the
aircraft. Correct procedural deficiencies through additional
instruction and study assignments.
(2) Incorporate emergency procedures training into
simulator sorties when practical; however, instructional block
objectives take precedence.
(3) Grade the student's overall EP knowledge and
performance under Emergency Procedures.
Mission Grading Procedures and Evaluation Policies
a. General Grading and Evaluation Policy. Maneuver Item
Files (MIF) listed in the MPTS are minimum stage/phase
completion standards per maneuver. Students who consistently
perform at the absolute minimum standard through multiple
stages/phases may not possess the skills required to complete
follow-on training. The MIF is designed to allow for minimum
performance in a specific area with the understanding that
performance above the minimum MIF will offset the weak area.
b. Grading Procedures (Aircraft and Training Devices)
(1) Absolute Maneuver Grading. Use the following grading
scale to document the student's characteristic performance on
maneuvers attempted during each dual sortie. This is an
absolute grading scale. Judge the student's proficiency only
against the item's course training standard. (See Student
Performance Measurement/Application of Standards, Course Data,
