CHAPTER FOUR
FAMILIARIZATION FLIGHTS (FAMS)
400. INTRODUCTION
The three T-2C FAM flights are designed to transition the student from the simulator phase to
the T-2C aircraft. The T-2C is a time-proven Navy jet trainer. Its performance and handling
characteristics serve as an excellent transition to the tactical jets in the fleet.
During FAMs, the student will be introduced to advanced tactical flight equipment such as a
G-suit system, an O2 mask, and ejection seat. With the solid procedural foundation of FAMS,
the student will progress to the best tactical applications of weapons delivery and basic fighter
maneuvers (BFM).
401. FLIGHT PLANNING/SORTIE COMPOSITION
FAMS may be flown as single events locally, as out-and-ins, or completed in series during
extended cross-countries. If the flight schedule does not delineate a local stereo route, the OUI
should coordinate with the assigned IP the evening prior to the scheduled FAM. Flight data (i.e.,
climb airspeeds, fuel data, etc.) may be found in NATOPS as well as in the "T-2C Student In-
flight Guide".
The FAM flight resembles a T-2C Radio Instrument (RI) simulator event. Each FAM should
include at least one instrument approach (PAR, ASR, or TACAN). Additionally, Unusual
Attitudes, VFR arrival procedures, and the VFR landing pattern will be emphasized during
FAMs.
Excellent ICS and UHF radio communications are the hallmark of a professional Naval Flight
Officer. Solid comms are essential to the efficient employment of tactical aircraft in a dynamic
environment. For these reasons, radio comms are a high priority during the entire FAM stage.
The radio skills previously learned in the Training Command will be polished while in T-2s.
Checklists will be challenge and reply if indicated in the T-2C Student In-flight Guide. Care
shall always be made to avoid stepping on UHF transmissions while conducting challenge and
reply checklists on the ICS.
NOTE
To facilitate the clearest ICS comms, the right console MIC SEL
switch should be utilized whenever practicable.
