CHAPTER ONE
T-34C AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS FAMILIARIZATION WORKBOOK
102. NAVAL AIR TRAINING AND OPERATING PROCEDURES
STANDARDIZATION
The Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization (NATOPS) Program was
developed out of a need to decrease the Navy's aircraft mishap rate and increase combat
readiness. The program, which officially began 8 May 1961, endeavored to standardize the
training and operating procedures between aircraft squadrons and ships, a condition which was
basically nonexistent even following the lessons learned in World War II and the Korean
conflict. Since its inception, the program has seen a tremendous decrease in the loss of human
life and aircraft.
The NATOPS Manual has a structure that may be unusual to the first-time user. The T-34C
NATOPS Manual has eleven parts and thirty-three chapters. A page number in a NATOPS
Manual has a two-section number identifying the chapter and chapter page number. For
example, page 22-12 is the 12th page in Chapter 22. A student checking that page would find
the NATOPS Evaluation Question Bank, which is referenced for self-testing at the completion of
most lessons in this book.
Of particular importance to a pilot are the WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, and NOTES found
throughout the manual.
WARNING
An operating procedure, practice, or condition, that may result in
injury or death if not carefully observed or followed.
CAUTION
An operating procedure, practice, or condition, that may result in
damage to equipment if not carefully observed or followed.
NOTE
An operating procedure, practice, or condition, essential to
emphasize.
Obviously, WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, and NOTES must be read closely and adhered to
completely.
Since the NATOPS Program must be dynamic and responsive to need for change, a system is
provided for submitting changes to the NATOPS Manual. A specific command is assigned the
responsibility for ensuring the manual has current procedures and information. Responsibility
for the T-34 is assigned to Commander, Training Air Wing FIVE, NAS Whiting Field. Anyone
may submit change recommendations to the NATOPS Manual.
Compliance with NATOPS is MANDATORY!
