FLIGHT TRAINING PUBLICATION (FLIP) STUDENT GUIDE
1. Pilots shall be responsible for remaining within the confines of the route. When
exiting vertically or laterally below 10,000 feet MSL comply with FAR 91.117 (aircraft speed).
When practicable, avoid flight within 1500 feet AGL or 3 NM of airports.
Flights shall be conducted at the minimum speed compatible with mission requirements
(e.g., 300 knots for the T -1 A).
Pilots flying on MTR in visual meteorological conditions (VMC)
are responsible for maintaining obstacle clearance and compliance
with OPNAVINST 3710.7, regardless of the route's published
Operations on VRs shall be conducted only when the weather is at or above VFR minima, except
Flight visibility shall be five miles or more.
Flights shall not be conducted below a ceiling of less than 3,000 feet AGL.
Pilots should monitor 255.4 (Flight Service Station) while on VRs when it is not detrimental to
the mission accomplishment. The FSSs within a 100 NM radius of your VR route will be listed
in the last section of the route description.
1. Pilots operating on a VR route will adjust their transponders to Code 4000 unless otherwise
assigned by ATC. This code lets ATC know that you are a military aircraft operating on a VR
route at speeds greater than 250 knots below 10,000 ft.
An example of a Low Altitude Training Route from AP/IB is seen in Figure 2-8.
