Target Pattern Procedures
Once the nose of your aircraft is above the horizon and you have turned the Master Armament switch
to SAFE, report [number]s off, safe.
If you find that your interval is too close, you must extend off target. Extend prior to starting the turn
to abeam and warn the aircraft behind you by calling [number]s off safe, extending. If you call off
target and your interval calls Crosswind as his position, reply with [number]s extending. Experi-
ence will dictate how long to extend, depending on how short the interval is.
Fours off safe.
Threes abeam, one point eight.
Ones in hot.
Four, your hit: one five zero at three thirty.
OTHER VOICE CALLS
If you have difficulty acquiring your interval, do not hesitate to ask for a posit. Answer requests for
position with the standard positions given above. If you decide to abort a run, call [number]s going
around high; if you do not release any ordnance, call: [number]s off safe, no drop. Finally, you
should report any unsafe condition you see on the ground or in the air. If you miss a hit call, call the
target by land line after landing. Dont ask for your hit while in the pattern.
