CHECKLISTS FOR CONDUCTING COMPREHENSIVE PHASE
CURRICULUM CONFERENCES FOR FLIGHT CURRICULUM
1. A comprehensive phase curriculum conference differs from a
stage conference primarily in that the whole curriculum is
reviewed and not just one or two areas. Additionally, minor or
major revisions, vice interim changes, are the normal outcome of
a phase conference. This phase conference requires a review of
five separate areas, instructions, and/or publications:
Appropriate CNATRAINST 1542.
b. Flight Training Instructions (FTIs), Flight Support
Lecture Guides (FSLGs), electronic classroom, and Computer
Assisted Instruction (CAI).
Aviation Training Forms (ATFs).
d. Academic Training Instructions (ATIs) and Instructor
The Test Management System (TMS), TIS, or TIMS.
2. The phase conference will be held no later than 12 months
after the publication date of the CNATRAINST 1542 for that phase.
During the transition to the new MPTS curriculum
format, it is recommended that an initial
curriculum conference be held during the first 6
to 8 months (vice the full 12 months) after a
new curriculum is published. This "interim"
conference has proven a useful tool in easing
the difficult process of creating, publishing,
and implementing a completely new syllabus.
