STANDARD SECTION FORMATION PROCEDURES
CHAPTER FIVE
WING OUI: "Two."
LEAD OUI: "Seabreeze, ROKT 260, flight of two, level at 12,000."
The lead will give the wingman ample time to switch frequencies and get a thumbs-up from the
wing student before checking the flight in on the new frequency.
The section will always have two callsigns - your ROKT admin call sign (from the flight
schedule) and your tactical callsign (the callsign of the lead pilot). The admin callsign will be
used whenever talking to controllers, and the tactical callsign will be used whenever
communicating within the section.
If the lead OUI forgets to switch the wing to a new frequency, the wing student should stay on
the old frequency until lead remembers to make the switch. The key to working with a single
radio limitation is maintaining predictability. If for some reason the lead and wing are on
different frequencies and cannot find each other, the wing will rejoin in parade formation and the
lead will pass the new frequency with standard hand signals.
Hand Signals
Good formation discipline depends upon the proper use and execution of visual signals. The
hand signals cover most maneuvers encountered and lessen the need for airborne radio
transmissions. The lead must give the signal in such a manner as to be easily seen and
understood. A wingman must fly in a position such that the lead's signals may always be visible.
The following tables and pictures describe and illustrate the typical hand signals utilized in
formation.
