CHAPTER TWO
TACTICAL FORMATION
200. INTRODUCTION
Tactical Formation (TF) is designed to teach basic pilot/copilot skills required for Tactical Low-
Level Formation Missions. TF will consist of either a two- or three-ship formation ("LEAD",
"TWO", and/or "THREE") with the two ship formation the standard. If a third aircraft is
employed, it will fly in the "traditional" C-130 formation as part of the element. Tactics
employed here are based on C-130 tactics taught at Little Rock and used operationally
worldwide.
201. PROHIBITED MANEUVERS
1.
Night Formation Flight is prohibited.
2.
Fan Breaks (all aircraft execute break at the same time).
3.
Intentional Formation Flight in IMC. This does not prevent a flight, if adequately
briefed, from flying an IFR clearance in VMC. The only situation that would warrant IMC
formation flight is a recovery with a wing who has lost communications and/or the radio
instruments necessary to execute an instrument approach, and is unable to continue in VMC. If
formation IMC flight is required, both IPs shall be at the controls.
202. FORMATION BRIEF
The formation brief will be attended by all formation members and shall be given by students
designated by the mission commander. Briefers will show a minimum of one hour prior to
formal brief time to prepare the briefing slides or the briefing book. The brief shall include, but
is not limited to the following:
1.
Aircraft BUNO/side-numbers/call signs/parking positions/initial position assignments.
2.
Communication:
a.
Callsigns
b.
Internal (interplane) frequency
c.
External frequencies
d.
Maneuver commands/terminology
e.
Chattermark
