6.9.1. In the jet phase of intermediate training the student is faced with much of the same
mission planning experienced in T-34 sorties. For the most part, the procedures and skills
learned in the T-34 phase are applied directly to flights in the T-1 or T-39. A significant
difference for the T-1/T-39 Intermediate student will be the pace in which VNAV sorties are
scheduled; typically immediately following the ANAV 16 sortie. As a result, students may find
themselves in a brief for the VNAV-5 sortie less than 48 hours after completing ground school!
As a result, students should not delay in completing their low-level mission materials.
6.9.2. However, the most significant difference is discussed in the next chapter. Flying at 500'
AGL and 300 KIAS changes the low level environment significantly and presents new challenges
to a student's skill level.
