STANDARD SECTION FORMATION PROCEDURES
CHAPTER FIVE
506. FUEL MANAGEMENT
Fuel Checks
Both students are responsible for fuel management within their own cockpits (i.e., tell the pilot to
switch from tips to wings when appropriate, etc.). The lead must always be aware of the fuel
state of the other jets in your flight. The lowest fuel state in the flight becomes the flight's fuel
state. For example, if one aircraft in the section reaches Joker fuel, the section is considered at
Joker state and will RTB accordingly. Due to the necessary "jockeying" of the throttles required
to maintain position in formation, the wingman will tend to be less fuel-efficient than the lead.
The lead OUI will be responsible for initiating all fuel checks on the radio.
Example
LEAD OUI: "Turbo, 2.6 tips."
WING OUI: "Turbo two, 2.6 tips."
Keep track of all fuel checks in your notes so you may refer to them at any time to analyze any
trends (i.e. does the wing have a transfer failure, etc.) As "mission commander" for the flight,
the lead student must analyze fuel states and determine when it is appropriate to RTB.
507. EMERGENCIES
ABORTS
Sympathetic aborts may be used during interval takeoffs if the wingmen is at low speed and can
safely stop behind the lead. The eight-second delay on an interval takeoff will normally result in
wing being at a slow speed (< 50 knots) if the lead aborts. Wing will then be able to safely stop
the aircraft in a short distance. This note is not meant to override common sense and good
headwork, only to maintain section integrity when practicable.
Aircraft Emergencies In Flight
When any member of a flight develops an emergency that requires them to land, the instructional
portion of the flight shall be terminated. The aircraft with the emergency will proceed directly to
its point of intended landing, escorted by another aircraft if possible. The aircraft with the
problem has the option of being lead or wing as the situation warrants. The escort will provide
assistance where ever possible (as requested), such as reading off emergency procedures or
making radio reports, etc.
Communication Failure (NORDO)
The aircraft with the communication failure will become the wingman. This is a minor
emergency when flying in formation. The aircraft with the good radio will be given the lead via
