T-34C CONTACT
CHAPTER FIVE
about any maneuver previously introduced or any subject general in nature to the T-34C
(systems, limitations, etc.).  The MPTS Curriculum also has a listing of all emergency
procedures to be discussed for each flight. Section V of the T-34C NATOPS Manual lists these
procedures.

Headwork, Procedures, and Basic Airwork
a.
Headwork - The ability to understand and grasp the meaning of instructions,
demonstrations, and explanations; the facility of remembering instructions from day
to day, the ability to plan a series or sequence of maneuvers or actions, the ability to
foresee and avoid possible difficulties and the ability to remain alert and spatially
oriented.
Headwork is the instructor's evaluation of the student's situational awareness (SA),
and his or her ability to effectively manage the aircrew responsibilities. An example
of a measure of headwork is whether the student remembers to "aviate, navigate,
communicate" in the correct order. Another measure of headwork is whether the
student is able to effectively communicate his or her SA. Headwork is purely a
subjective item, and the student should never question the instructor's assessment of
his or her headwork.
b.
Procedures - The demonstrated knowledge of the sequential actions required to
perform the curriculum maneuvers and actions. Procedures is simply an instructor's
evaluation of the SNA's ability to recall and/or apply the correct procedures to any
situation. This may include emergency procedures, or such things as Instrument, Gas
and Position (IGP) reports.  It may also include compliance to course rules or
squadron SOP.  Procedures is a fairly straightforward item.  Grades other than
average are normally given only in exceptional cases where students are not able to
recite or apply basic procedures correctly, or when a student demonstrates unusually
high competence (strive to be in the latter category).
c.
Basic Airwork - Demonstrated technique and mastery of the power and flight controls
to obtain the desired attitude, heading, airspeed and altitude consistently through a
range of maneuvers.

PREFLIGHT INSPECTION

Description. N/A
2.
General. The pilot who accepts an airplane for flight is in effect the commanding officer
of that plane and is responsible for the efficient operation and safety of the aircraft, its equipment
and its crew. Prior to every flight, a thorough preflight inspection must be performed.
A poor preflight may easily result in an embarrassing, if not dangerous, situation. Any pilot who
thinks that there is a possibility that a discrepancy exists which would make the aircraft unsafe
for flight should "down" the plane, inform maintenance of the trouble, and write a thorough and
