BASIC FIGHTER MANEUVERING (BFM) THEORY
CHAPTER NINE
Figure 9-4 Vertical Maneuvering
912. OBLIQUE MANEUVERING
In short, you will seldom maneuver in either the pure vertical or the pure horizontal; rather, you
will be trading airspeed for altitude in an infinite variety of oblique planes. As you develop your
BFM skills, you will learn how to use the oblique to turn as tightly and quickly as you can while
conserving the greatest amount of energy, thus preventing you from approaching the deck, out of
airspeed and ideas. Picture yourself in one of the aircraft shown in Figure 9-5.
Notice that one is performing an extremely steep oblique loop, while the other aircraft is more
horizontal, yet still oblique. As you maneuver in all three dimensions, base your decision to
trade airspeed for altitude on what the situation calls for during an engagement.
