ATM Training. The particular segments needed to complete the
syllabus will differ based on the student's service and platform
assignment at selection as described in the previous paragraph.
This training is flown primarily in the 2B49 trainer and the
T-39G/N aircraft. USN/USMC Strike and Fighter students will
also use the 2F101 trainer and the T-2C aircraft. Each segment
is divided into stages, such as Contact, Instrument, Navigation,
and Tactical, as applicable. Each stage is subdivided into
training blocks. The training blocks consist of a specified
number of flights/simulator events. Maneuver item files
identify the acceptable level of performance that must be
achieved at the completion of each training block.
