CHAPTER TWO
LOW-LEVEL AND TACTICAL FORMATION
2.
The formation then executes the appropriate slowdown maneuver as described in Chapter
One, page 1-28, Slowdown paragraph. LEAD should use wingman consideration techniques
during the slowdown.
NOTE
No timing corrections will be made after slowdown.
215. AIRDROP
LEAD is responsible for guiding the formation to the drop zone. WING maintains the basic in-
trail position but calls their own green light based on when they are over the drop zone. If
encountering a strong crosswind (3 of drift or more), WING should adjust their position so as to
maintain the same relative ground track as LEAD across the drop zone. This means that WING
will literally follow LEAD across the drop zone as depicted in Figure 2-7.
1.
The formation will stabilize at 1000 feet above the highest point on the drop zone and 120
KIAS (T-44)/130 KIAS (TC-12).
2.
Each aircraft makes its own green light and red light call. (IAW Chapter One, page 1-29,
Simulated Airdrop paragraph). The instructor pilot will call "load clear" after the student calls
"green light".
