INSTRUMENTS FLIGHT PLANNING
Single-piloted aircraft with side-by-side seating occupied by the PIC and an assisting NFO,
which are configured for and assigned all-weather missions, may operate within the same
clearance and approach criteria specified above for multi-piloted aircraft provided that:
1. The assisting NFO is instrument and NATOPS qualified for the model aircraft in which
NFO duties are being performed.
Cockpit configuration is such that the assisting NFO can:
Monitor the pilot's flight instruments.
Monitor and control communications.
Assist the pilot in acquiring the runway visually.
The aviator filing a flight plan must ensure that all essential weather elements are included in
his/her briefing. He/she shall request clarification or additional information when doubt exists.
The ease with which all-weather flights are successfully completed is directly proportional to the
aircrew's preparation and their understanding of the environment in which they operate.
