The student will be introduced, in the simulator, to this dynamic, multi-bogey environment.
The myriad situations and topics to discuss is far too broad to include in this book and will be
covered as much as possible during class in the simulator and, as resources are available, during
Mastery of multi-bogey tactics is not the purpose at this stage and will be the focus of
training at the various FRS' and FTUs. It is necessary, however, for the student to have a general
understanding of the terms listed below and how they apply.

General description of bogey groups in reference to bullseye:
"Sword, picture, 2 groups, azimuth, 10, Northern group 5 South Bull"
or, for the same picture:
"Sword, picture, 2 groups, 10 nm North-South split, Northern group Bullseye
Now that we are at least thinking about multiple groups and contacts, the bullseye and BRA
calls during the advanced phase will now reference groups in order to get the student to sound a
