CHAPTER TEN
BASIC FIGHTER MANEUVERS (BFM)
1000. INTRODUCTION
With a solid grasp of the BFM theory presented in Chapter 9, tactics and procedures utilized
during the BFM syllabus flights may now be introduced. A "building block" approach will be
utilized during the BFM syllabus where we first demonstrate the T-2C aircraft performance in
flight. Cooperative section tactical engaging turns will then be introduced and practiced. The
tactical material will become more complex as we introduce the offensive and defensive
components of two plane engagements. Finally, we will train to fight 1V1 BFM engagements
from a neutral start.
This chapter presents the maneuvers and procedures the student will perform during the BFM
phase in chronological order.
The six syllabus flights will be flown in section to a local working area. Thorough knowledge of
the working area procedures is required. Basic section procedures are utilized and lead
responsibilities are normally shared on alternating flights between paired students. Solid Fam
procedures such as checklists, fuel management, and navigation are expected.
As the BFM flights are the final phase of training before earning your "Wings of Gold,"
professional radio and ICS communications will be emphasized. Most winged graduates find
this final phase of instruction to be the most challenging and rewarding flying in the Training
Command. Solid preparation for each flight will make the difference.
1001. FLIGHT PREPARATION
Brief
At the scheduled brief time, the students will have a briefing board prepared in accordance with
the "ATM Student Briefing Guide". Administrative flight data will be displayed to include a
drawing of the scheduled operating area. A tactical callsign for the flight will be chosen from the
following list:
VIPER, SNAKE, SWEEP, HAMMER, SLEDGE, KNIFE, SWORD, AXE, SHOTGUN, MACE,
SHIELD, FANG, PANTHER, RAM, COBRA, STING, VOODOO, MAGIC, KILLER, BOXER,
FIST, LION, TIGER, WOLF, KNIGHT, HAWK, BAT, SHARK, SMACK, EVIL, KEVLAR,
SPIKE, RAIL, WEDGE, ANGER, HULK, FLASH, BANG, RIFLE, CANNON, TURBO, AND
NORM.
Additionally, the basic guns envelope will be drawn on the briefing board and incorporated into
the brief. The students will utilize T-2C models during the brief. Special emphasis during the
brief will be placed on the students' thorough understanding and verbatim recitation of the Out-
of-Control Flight (OCF) recovery procedures.
