INFORMATION SHEET
Flight Planning and Conduct
Information Sheet No. 4.7.1I
INTRODUCTION
Any successful military operation is a result of careful planning and coordination.
This requires all participants in the operation to carefully plan each of their
missions in order to execute the plan flawlessly and strive to be on target, on
time. This chapter introduces methods that enable the aircrew to develop a basic
flight plan incorporating elements from each preceding chapter.

FLIGHT PLANNING
FLIGHT PLANNING STEPS
Basic air navigation and flight planning, in general, follows four steps:
1.
Measure True Courses and distances.
2.
Use preflight winds to determine appropriate headings and Ground
Speeds.
3.
Using Ground Speed, compute an enroute time for each leg (ETE).
4.
Using ETE and a given fuel flow, compute fuel consumption for each leg
(Leg Fuel).
These steps incorporate everything that has been presented in this course so far
and will enable the aircrew to arrive at their appointed place on time and with
enough fuel. The result of these steps will be recorded on a card (called a Jet
Log) to be referenced in flight.
JET LOGS
The primary purpose of the jet log is fuel management. The jet log also assists
with enroute voice communications, navigation, and nav-aid identification. Other
sections of the jet log provide the Warrior-Navigator with departure and
destination airfield information. The jet log is about 5 X 7 inches in size, is
designed to fit on a knee board, and gives the aviator instant access to important
information. This is a single-source document, eliminating the need to reference
other publications during critical phases of flight such as takeoffs and landings.
