FUEL PLANNING
Data for accurate fuel planning is available in the T-2C NATOPS manual and, to a lesser extent,
in the T-2C Student In-Flight Guide. Appropriate fuel states from the above sources will be used
to fill in the strip chart doghouses and divert chart. Actual fuel figures will depend on the route
planned.

TOTALS:
As calculated
All T-2C flights shall be planned to land with at least 1000 LBS of fuel remaining as per
squadron SOP.
DD 175
Most often, the WEPS flights will be on the flight schedule and stereo routes utilized. If this is
the case, a DD 175 is not necessary. If DD 175 is listed on the flight schedule, the Lead student
will be required to fill out a DD 175. By brief time, a final copy of the DD 175 should be
completed without errors. When entering your entry and exit points onto the DD 175 you must
ensure only the AP-1B points are used.
DIVERT CHART
A divert chart is required for each low-level route flown. A divert chart is designed for instant
situational awareness during an airborne emergency. In the event of any in-flight emergency
(mechanical, structural, Bingo fuel, etc.) that requires an immediate recovery, the divert chart
will provide the aircrew with a quick steer to the nearest suitable divert airfield. Care should be
taken to make the divert chart as clear and accurate as possible. The information on the divert
chart will be briefed before each flight. Specifically the divert chart will contain the following:
1.  A suitable divert airfield from each point on the low-level route. Squadron SOP will define
the requirements of a suitable divert field (civilian or military).
