Be Informed. Use the FLIP system to plan your route of flight, file your flight plan, and learn information
about your destinations. You should find out whether the field you are flying to has contract fuel (civilian
fields), requires a PPR number (military fields), hours of operation, runway lengths, etc. Often a telephone
call to the destination Base Ops or civilian FBO is helpful.
A formal weather briefing and a DD-175-1 flight weather briefing shall be completed for all flights to be
conducted in IMC. Pilots may use weather vision to complete the DD 175-1 provided sufficient forecast
data is given. Pilots are responsible for filling out an actual DD-175-1 for all telephonic (e.g., 1-800-WX-
BRIEF) and weather vision briefings and have it with them in flight. This is to be in compliance with
OPNAV 3710.7. A DD175-1 is not required if flight in IMC is not anticipated per the squadron SOP.
Refer to the squadron SOP for other weather policies, including student solo requirements.
(1). If extended flight is intended (e.g., cross country events), an OPARS and a horizontal weather depiction
(HWD) chart should be requested from Base Weather. Allow at least two hours, preferably overnight, for
(2). If a ground delay is experienced, recheck ATIS and the weather void time on your DD-175-1. Request an
update with Metro if required and note the extension time on your DD-175-1. Be prepared to give your
Takeoff Minimums. Pilots will adhere to the OPNAV 3710.7 takeoff minimums listed below.
Consideration must be given to aircraft equipment capabilities and runway in use. For training flights,
standard instrument rating takeoff minimums apply regardless of rating held by the instructor. Remember
that personal higher limits may be self-imposed due to lack of recent experience, rapidly changing weather,
or other factors.
