CHAPTER TWO
LOW-LEVEL AND TACTICAL FORMATION
Figure 2-8 Racetrack Procedures
218. RECOVERY
Overhead. At initial, fly 1000 feet AGL or pattern altitude, whichever is higher, and 200 KIAS.
1.
WING will fly the same ground track as LEAD and stack up slightly to avoid wake
turbulence. Break using 45 of bank. Retard power to idle as 45 of bank is established. WING
delays 5 seconds after previous aircraft before breaking.
2.
Make a level turn to the downwind leg. Configure on speed and complete the landing
checklist and reapply power as necessary to maintain 120 KIAS (T-44) or 140 KIAS (TC-12).
3.
Succeeding aircraft commence final turn with sufficient spacing to provide a 20 second (15
seconds minimum) landing interval to ensure minimum spacing of 1500 ft between aircraft at
touchdown. Maintain 120 KIAS (T-44) or 140 KIAS (TC-12) until established on final.
Downwind Entry. Enter a downwind leg for the active runway, maintaining 200 KIAS and 800
feet AGL or traffic pattern altitude, whichever is higher. Position the downwind to allow for a
continuous turn to final.
1.
WING will fly the same ground track as LEAD and stack up slightly to avoid wake
turbulence.
2.
LEAD will break approximately NM past the approach end of the runway with 45 of
bank. Retard power to flight idle after the bank is established.
3.
Succeeding aircraft will break with sufficient spacing to provide a 20 second interval (15
seconds minimum). At 200 KIAS entry speed, initiating break approximately 7-9 seconds apart
will generally result in 20-second spacing at landing. Complete the landing checklist as airspeed
permits. Make a level turn until reaching 120 KIAS (T-44) or 140 KIAS (TC-12), then descend
at this airspeed while completing the turn. Slow to 110 KIAS (T-44)/130 KIAS (TC-12) once
established on final. Ensure minimum spacing of 1500 feet between aircraft at touchdown. The
downwind recovery will not be flown at NGP to prevent an extended pattern.
