Describe the procedures, required to control the
aircraft for night VMC flight, during a brief with
instructor assistance in accordance with the FTI and
TH-57 NATOPS Flight Manual.
Describe scan patterns needed to control the aircraft
for night VMC flights, during a brief with instructor
assistance in accordance with the FTI and TH-57 NATOPS
Recall published minima for a rotary-wing aircraft for
night VMC flight.
Control a rotary-wing aircraft to maintain that
aircraft, within published minima with instructor
assistance during night VMC shore based operations, in
accordance with standard operating directives.
Recognize sensory cues through the maintenance of an
adequate internal and external scan, with instructor
assistance for night shore based operations, so as to
rapidly elicit accurate, timely and precise information
relative to aircraft performance.
Determine specific control responses required from in-
flight visual cues, with instructor assistance for night
VMC shore based operations, so as to select correct
Perform basic and precision maneuvers, with instructor
direction for night VMC shore based operations, in
accordance with the FTI and TH-57 NATOPS Flight Manual.
2. Analyze meteorological and physiological factors and apply
Aerodynamic principles to accurately interpret the limiting
environmental factors affecting flight; standards are prescribed
in each LO.
Evaluate the observed or forecast meteorological
conditions to avoid hazards to flight and arrive at
destination or alternate above OPNAV weather minima,
given en route or terminal forecasts in-flight, without
Determine appropriate course deviation in the presence
of significant weather, given a decision to deviate.
Participate in a ditching or forced landing drill, on
deck with a TH-57 aircraft, without error.
Demonstrate a knowledge of various aerodynamic
principles and considerations affecting flight on a
written test to an accuracy of 80 percent.
