CHAPTER NINE
BASIC FIGHTER MANEUVERING (BFM) THEORY
907. THE BFM ENVIRONMENT
Before discussing the types of maneuvers and procedures required for executing successful
engagements, the environment in which BFM takes place must be understood. The BFM
environment is a three-dimensional arena with an infinite number of planes, ranging from the
pure vertical to the pure horizontal (Figure 9-1). When you enter this environment, you are
limited in terms of energy, turn performance, aerodynamic characteristics, gravity, etc. These
limitations make a BFM engagement a constant series of tradeoffs in order to best fight your
aircraft and gain the advantage. Closer examination of these factors is required before the
specific procedures can be understood.

908. THE "TACTICAL EGG"
Figure 9-1 depicts the "egg", which represents a three-dimensional sphere showing the effects of
gravity as you maneuver in all planes. The advanced student has previously been introduced to
all the concepts and principles in this chapter during aerodynamics. The key to successfully out-
flying a bogey will depend on a thorough understanding of these principals, the limitations of
