Most missions in the fleet are flown in formations of two or more aircraft.
Before you can fly formation safely and confidently, you must learn the radio
and visual communication procedures between the lead and his wingmen.
You must also know ground, takeoff, and flight procedures for section and
division formations. You will find these procedures in this and the other
lessons in the formation block.
This lesson will introduce you to section formation flight in the T-45. You will
be familiar with formation flight from marshaling through the initial
rendezvous. You will also know the visual signals used between pilots in
formation flight as well as the tasks and responsibilities of the formation lead.
