BASIC FIGHTER MANEUVERS (BFM)
CHAPTER TEN
Like any complex skill worth learning, BFM capability will grow with the experience of each
engagement.
1V1 Engagement Tactical Responsibility
BFM flights 3-6 will conclude with a series of 1V1 BFM engagements directed by the student
(BFM-2 engagements were demonstrated by the IPs). As the student progresses through the
BFM syllabus, responsibility for the tactical conduct of the fights will gradually be transferred
from the IP to the student. The types of engagements and their associated tactical responsibility
are as follows:
TYPE ENGAGEMENT
ENGAGEMENT CONDUCT
Demo fight
IP demonstrates fight
Max input fight
Student directs fight with maximum IP
coaching input
Min input fight
Student directs fight with minimum IP
coaching input
Auto fight
Student directs fight with no IP coaching
input
Crew fight
Student and IP work together as a tactical
team
Engagement Admin
The engagements will be conducted from neutral abeam set-ups detailed in the "1V1
Engagement ADMIN" section of this instruction. On the final syllabus flight, BFM-6X, the
"butterfly" or "radial run" set ups may be briefed during preflight and flown at the discretion of
the lead IP.
High Aspect BFM
Up until now, the fights have started with one aircraft in a positional advantage over another. In
a high aspect engagement (i.e., head-on pass) BFM concepts take on a new light since neither
aircraft begins with a positional advantage and the flow is much less predictable. As both
aircraft maneuver for an advantage, engagements will normally transition from neutral to defined
roles.
When this occurs, the student will utilize the concepts previously discussed in Offensive and
Defensive BFM.
There are several different considerations when approaching high-aspect BFM. First of all, what
sort of merge are you likely to encounter? Here in the Training Command, your neutral sets will
occur from close range (typically inside of 1-1/2 miles) with both fighter and bogey having a
tally of the other. Assuming that neither jet is willing to give away any positional advantage at
the merge, you will pass within 500 ft (minimum for training rules) and 180 off the tail. From
here, you will employ all the BFM knowledge that you have acquired to accomplish your goals.
