CHAPTER ONE
T-34C CONTACT
6.
T-34C NATOPS MANUAL AND POCKET CHECKLIST.  The T-34C NATOPS
manual is the definitive instruction on the operation of the aircraft. The Pocket Checklist (PCL)
is a convenient pocket sized listing of those items in the NATOPS manual that would be of
particular concern while airborne or at a remote location. No student or flight instructor has the
authority to deviate from NATOPS without specific written authority except in specific
situations. The NATOPS also lists the crew requirements for flying the aircraft. There is a bank
of questions in the back of the NATOPS that every aviator should be familiar with. The
structure of the T-34C NATOPS is similar to that of every other aircraft in the Navy/ Marine
Corps. Both the NATOPS and the PCL list emergency procedures. Some of these procedures
are listed in Boldface or with asterisks next to them. These items are memory items, and the
SNA shall be able to recall and apply any of these procedures correctly to the appropriate aircraft
malfunction. In addition to the emergency procedures, a pilot should be able to recall the
Landing Checklist from memory. Other than these, every checklist should be performed with the
aid of the PCL or appropriate guide. Familiarity with the PCL should be acquired in an attempt
to ensure efficient use under potentially arduous situations while airborne.
In Primary Training, there is no room for libraries of publications. T-34C aircrews must be
thoroughly familiar with their aircraft. They must study the NATOPS manual in-depth and have
a thorough knowledge of it because no opportunity exists to do so while airborne. NATOPS
requires the use of checklists. Although a student may become familiar with a checklist, pocket
checklists are to be used to ensure no items are missed.
104.
ACADEMIC/FLIGHT SUPPORT TRAINING
The terminal objective of flight support training and academics is to provide the SNA with the
basic knowledge and skills directly applicable to satisfactory progression in the T-34C aircraft
flight training. Upon completion of the academic and flight support activities, the student will be
capable of relating these acquired cognitive skills and applying them through simulation and
actual flights, thus developing the motor skills and headwork necessary to meet CNATRA
standards to complete primary flight training.
105.
STANDARDS OF PERFORMANCE
1.   STANDARDIZATION. Flight instruction must be highly standardized. The syllabi that
are currently being used are the result of constant evolution and the techniques taught are lessons
learned over the course of many years. The FTI and NATOPS set forth the one standardized
way of doing any specific maneuver. Adherence to these standards will be a part of any
instructor's evaluation of a student's performance during an event. Occasionally, a student may
question a particular instructor's technique, or he may think that an instructor is incorrect. There
is no time for protracted discussion or debate in the air. If an instructor's request is unclear to the
student, he must request clarification. If, however, the student feels that the instructor's methods
or techniques contradict NATOPS or the FTI, he should consult his class advisor on the
appropriate way to address the issue. In any event, when the student feels that flight safety is in
jeopardy, he is bound to request a Training Time Out to obtain clarification.
