188.8.131.52.4.6. WING "Dash Two, cleared in order."
184.108.40.206.4.7. LEAD "RKT 230, three down-and-locked."
220.127.116.11.4.8. TOWER "RKT 230, Roger."

126.96.36.199. Section Approach
188.8.131.52.1. Lead coordinates with ATC for a section approach followed by Course Rules.
184.108.40.206.2. Lead Student ensures the flight is configured for landing no later than 10
miles and within 30° of final approach heading. As formations are inherently less
maneuverable, this necessitates timely calls by the Lead Student. Be ahead of the aircraft!
220.127.116.11.3. Once the flight has slowed to 165 kts or less, the Lead IP initiates the
configuration change with hand signals. Each student performs individual Landing
Checks. As in FAMs, the speed brakes may remain in until the final decent. Wing
student passes a thumbs up to Lead as soon as a three down-and-locked indication is
observed. When Lead observes a three down-and-locked indication and receives a
thumbs up from the Wingman, the Lead Student informs Approach.
18.104.22.168.3.1. LEAD "Approach, RKT 230, six down-and-locked." (three each)
3.11. LANDING / POST-LANDING
3.11.1. Landing rollout responsibilities are the same as in FAMs.
3.11.2. Once clear of the runway, Lead Student switches to Ground frequency and calls for taxi.
Once Wing is clear, Wing student switches to Ground frequency and waits for the check-in.
Lead Student watches Wing to determine when to do the check-in.
3.11.3. When Wing clears the taxiway, Lead initiates a switch to Base frequency, checks the
Wingman in and calls maintenance with the aircraft status. Wing then calls maintenance with
aircraft status. After the status of both aircraft is passed to maintenance, Lead calls Base with the
flight time. It is imperative the Lead has SA as to the Wingman's position during the post-
landing phase to ensure proper compliance. Post-Landing Checks and Shut Down Procedures are
the same as in the FAM stage.
3.12. SECTION EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
3.12.1. Section T/O aborts are probably the most dangerous of all possible section emergencies.
If one aircraft aborts on the T/O roll, the other continues the roll and T/O. If both aircraft abort,
the aircraft physically in front gives up the first set of arresting gear unless cleared by the aircraft
22.214.171.124. A NORDO aircraft becomes Wing if no other emergencies exist. RTB per SOP.
126.96.36.199. The lost sight/lost COMM points and procedures are covered in the brief.
188.8.131.52. If either aircraft reaches Joker fuel, the LL is terminated, and the flight proceeds to the
