CHAPTER ONE
LOW-LEVEL AND TACTICAL FORMATION
still at 500 feet AGL, but it would also be very easy to become distracted and troubleshoot
yourself right into the ground. Remember that, as long as you are flying low-level, all
malfunctions are serious. Get away from the ground before troubleshooting any
malfunction.
103. CREW COORDINATION AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Crew coordination is essential to flight safety and mission accomplishment. All crewmembers
must work together as a team. If you notice anything during a flight that has the potential to
jeopardize mission accomplishment or flight safety, ensure all crewmembers are notified
immediately.
1.
Pilot Duties (pilot at the controls)
a.
Fly the aircraft (maintain heading, altitude and airspeed).
b.
Back up the Copilot (timing, landmark IDs, systems and fuel monitoring, etc.).
c.
Fly all takeoffs, landings, airdrops, and recoveries (both IMC and VMC).
d.
Maintain a continuous outside scan for traffic, birds, and terrain clearance and an
inside scan for the decision height light and engine instruments.
2.
Copilot Duties (pilot not at the controls)
a.
Back up the Pilot at the controls.
b.
Navigate (use tactical pilotage to determine proper heading, altitude, airspeed and
timing necessary to fly the route).
c.
Make appropriate time control adjustments to arrive at the objective point on time.
d.
Handle all assigned radio communications.
e.
Maintain a continuous outside scan for traffic, birds, and terrain clearance and an
inside scan for the decision height light and engine instruments.
3.
Advisory Calls: Mandatory advisory calls follow. (The copilot will make these calls
except those designated for any crewmember.)
a.
Takeoff. State "ROTATE" at takeoff speed. Any crewmember noting a safety of
flight malfunction before hearing "ROTATE" will state "ABORT" and a brief
description of the malfunction (e.g., "Abort, left engine flameout.").
b.
Climb out: Transition altitude. One thousand feet below assigned altitude.
