604. FSLG Background. Students are expected to read the
appropriate portion of the FTI prior to attending the flight
support lecture. The lecture is intended to tie the FTI, NATOPS,
and specific 1542 requirements together in addition to providing
a logical opportunity for the instructor to bring in local
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Course Rules as they
apply to that stage. The published CNATRA FSLG will be void of
all SOPs and Course Rules. At the conclusion of the flight
support lecture, each student or IUT will be given a test of
twenty or more questions to cover all learning objectives.
605. FSLG Content. SM/CMs are responsible for submitting
proposed FSLGs, normally as a result of a curriculum conference,
using the following steps (and format found in Appendix J):
a. Instructors using the FSLGs should be encouraged to
submit improvement recommendations using the TCR form.
b. A thorough knowledge of the FTI, NATOPS, and the 1542
is required before writing an FSLG.
c. All items taught to the student from the 1542 should be
listed in chronological order, that is, in the order that the
student will experience them. Items which have been previously
discussed in an FSLG should be listed but need not be reviewed.
d. Objectives, as listed in the 1542 under the Flight
Support Lecture, should be addressed as procedures that are
discussed. Every objective must be covered. If the 1542 is
lacking, this would be the best time to update the 1542
objectives as well (see Chapter 4).
e. SM/CMs need only submit the content pages. CNATRA is
responsible for the cover, letter of promulgation, and TCR.
f. The smoothed FSLG should be submitted as outlined in
606. Electronic Classroom and Computer Assisted Instruction.
SM/CMs are responsible for ensuring all electronic classroom and
CAI software is updated and remains current. Required changes
should be submitted to the CNATRA PTO. The CNATRA PTO will
forward required changes to the FTSC for revision and
distribution via TIMS, as applicable.
