Air Combat Maneuvering
Because you are constantly pushing the envelope in maneuvering during ACM, you will reach critical
points where a departure might occur. Be especially aware of two situations. First, when you are in
a defensive situation and the bandit executes a BRA, you may become disoriented and lose control
as you counter during your vertical pullup. Second, if you are executing a high-g roll, you could
depart the aircraft because of cross-controlling.
All aircraft have specific structural/aerodynamic limitations. If you do not heed these limitations, you
could damage the aircraft and endanger yourself. It is mandatory that you know all the aircraft
limitations and emergency procedures.
