Section Formation Recovery, Approaches, Landing Configuration
Sg 0, fr 5-6
One place where your skills as a pilot are observed by both instructors and peers
alike is during recoveries and landings. It is not uncommon for Naval aviators to
comment on the approach of a section of aircraft entering the break and to
grade the way the section performed. But more important than looking smart is
the safety factor. For example, flying good wing during an approach to the ship
in bad weather on a dark night may make the difference in getting aboard.
This lesson will introduce you to procedures for several types of section
recoveries. After this lesson, you should be familiar with the procedures to be
followed in the section VFR overhead break as well as section, circling, and
missed section approaches.
