CHAPTER FOUR
METEOROLOGY FLIGHT PLANNING
leaving these three blocks empty, until the time of the weather brief. At this point­just before the
weather briefing­a final check of the weather can be made, and two of those three blocks can be
filled in. The alternate airfield block is selected according to the procedures described in Chapter
One and the altitude block will be discussed shortly. Then, a copy of the DD 175 is given to the
weather office for a briefer to prepare a DD 175-1. After receiving the weather briefing, the last
block can be filled in (the weather briefing number), and the flight plan can be turned in to Base
Operations or the local ATC agency for filing and entering in to the ATC computer system.

DD 175-1 FLIGHT WEATHER BRIEFING FORM
The DD 175-1 Flight Weather Briefing Form provides a common format for all military (and
DoD) aircrew to receive a weather briefing from the local meteorology office regardless of
location. However, when using other types of flight plans, such as the daily flight schedule, the
DD 175-1 might not be filled out, but a substitute presenting this information must still be used
to give the aircrew a complete picture of the expected weather. For this reason, OPNAVINST
3710.7 states the following requirements regarding the use of the Flight Weather Briefing form:
A DD 175-1, flight weather briefing, shall be completed for all flights to be conducted in
Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC). For VFR flights using the DD 175, the following
certification on the flight plan may be used in lieu of a completed DD 175-1:
BRIEFING VOID ________Z, FLIGHT AS PLANNED CAN BE CONDUCTED
UNDER VISUAL FLIGHT RULES. VERBAL BRIEFING GIVEN AND HAZARDS
EXPLAINED. FOLLOWING SIGMETS ARE KNOWN TO BE CURRENTLY IN
EFFECT ALONG PLANNED ROUTE OF FLIGHT____________________________.
HAZARDS___________________________.
____________________________
(SIGNATURE OF FORECASTER)
The above certification is known as the VFR Certification Stamp. In order to use the VFR
Stamp, the pilot must file VFR for the entire planned route, the pilot must request the stamp, and
the stamp is available only at the forecaster's discretion.
The flight weather briefing may be accomplished by a meteorological forecaster, when available,
or through an autographic, telephonic, weather vision, or certified Internet/intranet system when
no forecasters are available.
Figure 4-2 shows a blank Flight Weather Briefing Form divided into five sections:
Mission/Takeoff Data, En Route Data, Terminal Forecasts, Comments/Remarks, and the Briefing
Record. In fact, the DD 175-1 was designed to provide specific information corresponding to the
three phases of any flight­takeoff, en route, and landing as found in the first, second, and third
sections.
