Away from the Wingman
The lead initiates the turn by calling, [Call sign], in-place right/left. The wingman acknowledges,
[Call sign]. Both lead and wingman then add power and begin engaging (energy-sustaining) turns of
180 degrees while maintaining 300 KIAS, 14 units AOA, and approximately 70 degrees AOB (Figure 10).
The wingman continues the turn by varying AOB and g based upon the leads turn. After 90 degrees, the
wingman will check the leads six and call, Six clear. When the lead re-acquires the wingman visually, he
checks the wingmans six and calls, Visual, six clear. The wingman then continues to maneuver for
combat spread. Remember to make corrections for positional deviation after the first 90 degrees of turn.
Failure to correct then causes you to end up out of position.
