BASIC INSTRUMENT PROCEDURES
BI SIMULATOR SCENARIO
During the BI Simulators, the OUI will utilize the CTW-6 In-flight guide, Enclosure 7, T-2C
Buckeye. The simulator will be broken down into two phases as follows:
Phase 1: The simulator will be placed in the NFO mode and the student will not fly the
simulator. The emphasis during this phase will be for the OUI to become familiar with T-2C
checklist and procedures from start-up to shutdown. The OUI will conduct the flight simulating
all communications, checklist, and procedures required to execute the NPA-8 and a RTB to NAS
Sherman Field for either a PAR or ASR to a full stop.
Phase 2: During phase two, the simulator will be placed in the pilot mode. The student
will start both engines, complete a takeoff checklist, and fly the aircraft. Checklists will not be
graded in phase 2. The OUI will focus on developing their instrument scan by completing a
variety of piloting maneuvers dictated in the Master Curriculum Guide.
The following callsigns and clearances will be used for the BI events.
No flight planning required for BI events
The student will:
Operate the 2F101 in accordance with T-2C NATOPS.
Wear gloves in the simulator (personal issue).
Wear a torso harness in the simulator.
Wear a G-suit in the simulator (personal issue).

THE 2F101 FLIGHT SIMULATOR IN THE "NFO" MODE
The 2F101 as installed at NAS Pensacola can be operated in three modes: flown from the
cockpit as though it was an aircraft ("MANUAL FLIGHT" Mode), flown by a recording (the
"DEMONSTRATION" Mode), and flown with the keyboard at the instructor console ("NFO"
Mode). The latter is the mode that will be used for RI and SUA events. The trainer is generally
