BREAKUP AND RENDEZVOUS - BREAKUP PORTION
a. Regain rendezvous airspeed and altitude
b. Roll out of turn
(1) In trail behind lead with 1,000 ft of nose-to-tail clearance
(2) At rendezvous airspeed and altitude, step up slightly to
avoid lead's jetwash
NOTE: Wingman should not adjust power to compensate
for nose-to-tail error in trail.
The reason for not adjusting power in trail is to prepare the student for division
flight. Adjusting power causes other aircraft in trail to make larger power
corrections and leads to overcontrolled nose-to-tail.
