BASIC FIGHTER MANEUVERS (BFM)
CHAPTER TEN
Prior to commencing maneuvers in W-155A both students will complete the Stall and Acro
Checklist (found in the T-2C Student In-flight Guide as well as in the NATOPS Pocket
Checklist.)
W-155A 10 Minute Prior RTB Call
Approximately 10 minutes prior to RTB, the lead student will contact Seabreeze on their primary
frequency to obtain the weather, altimeter, and duty runway. The wingman will remain on the
discrete frequency.
Example
LEAD: (on discrete frequency): "Turbo will be off frequency one mike."
WING: "Two."
LEAD: (on Seabreeze primary frequency): "Seabreeze, ROKT 204, RTB in ten minutes, course
rules."
SEABREEZE: "Roger ROKT 204, Sherman Field landing RWY 7, weather is VFR, altimeter
3002."
LEAD: "ROKT 204, 3002."
SEABREEZE: "Roger ROKT 204."
After switching back to the discrete frequency, the lead student checks in with the wing and will
pass the information.
W-155A RTB
The RTB will be initiated by the lead IP at the completion of the last engagement with a "Knock-
it-off, RTB" call on the UHF. The wing IP will echo the call. The next call will be wing student
calling visual and reporting their fuel state. This "Visual" call is essential for safety of flight and
is the top priority. With the lead in sight, and the "visual" call made, the wing student will
monitor closure during the rejoin. Once the wing has called "visual", the lead student's primary
responsibility is to direct the flight out of the working area and back to base in a safe and
efficient manner. As always, the best way to accommodate this is to rely on the standard
hierarchy of priorities: aviate, navigate, and communicate.
Example
LEAD IP: "Knock it off, RTB." (At completion of last engagement.)
WING IP: "Roger, knock it off, RTB."
