T-34C PRIMARY FORMATION FLIGHT TRAINING
CHAPTER EIGHT
CHAPTER EIGHT
CRUISE MANEUVERING
800. INTRODUCTION
Cruise maneuvering teaches discipline and the proper application of three-dimensional
maneuvering. In this phase of training the flight sequence is not as rigid as it was in Basic
formation. This will require adaptability and flexibility on the part of all flight members. As
students, you will be responsible for planning and executing the flight sequence. A solid plan
will help eliminate "droning" or wasting time.
Lead. The role of Lead is heavily emphasized in the T-34C Cruise formation phase. The lead
aircraft is responsible for the safe and effective conduct of the mission. As you practice leading
these demanding sorties, try to exercise your own judgment and come up with your own plan to
accomplish the mission and keep the profile moving. Be considerate of your wingman and try to
provide the best possible platform at all times.
Wing. The Wing's role during cruise formation is to fly the position commanded by Lead in a
safe manner. During dynamic formation maneuvering, Wing will be required to maintain
situational awareness and maintain a safe position at all times.
801. CRUISE MANEUVERING OVERVIEW
Departure Phase. Prior to commencing the cruise formation maneuvers, Lead will establish the
flight in the working area in accordance with local course rules. The departure phase will consist
of the following:
1.
Ground Operations
2.
Section Takeoff
3.
Course Rules Departure to the Working Area
4.
Fence-In Check
Cruise Formation Phase. After completing the fence check Lead may begin the maneuvering
