CHAPTER NINE
T-34C PRIMARY FORMATION FLIGHT TRAINING
905. CLIMBOUT, AREA, DESCENT
Optional signals are given at Lead's discretion when something is going on in flight that may not
be obvious to Wing. Checking the Wingman in position and the area clear will preface all
in-flight signals. Make these checks with exaggerated head movements to give Wing a warning
you're going to give a visual signal. All optional signals do NOT require an
acknowledgement.
