CHAPTER FOUR
T-6A FORMATION
NOTE
This exercise will only be accomplished in VMC conditions. Lead
and Wingman instructors will be vigilant during the separation
maneuver while the students direct the appropriate aircraft
maneuvers.
405. 180 BREAKUP AND RENDEZVOUS
Operational military squadrons employ the rendezvous when aircraft takeoff and join-up while
climbing to altitude. The Lead proceeds straight ahead after takeoff and then makes a turn,
during which the other aircraft in flight use a shorter radius of turn to join the Lead.
In basic formation training, the rendezvous has been made level and is combined with the
breakup, which establishes interval for the rendezvous. To simulate aircraft taking off
individually, form a column by effecting a breakup. The 180 breakup and rendezvous is a
co-airspeed, co-altitude rendezvous. This provides practice in using radius of turn to effect a
rendezvous when an airspeed advantage is not present.
1.  The Lead. Prior to initiating the maneuver, the Lead must ensure the 180 breakup and
rendezvous can be accomplished from the present heading. It is necessary you understand in
what direction the rendezvous will move the track of formation. That is, if the breakup turn is
commenced from a northerly heading, the track of the formation will be in an easterly or westerly
direction, depending on area constraints. The 180 breakup and rendezvous can be made from a
right or left parade position. The student will:
a.
Check the Wingman is in position.
b.
Check the area is clear.
c.
Give the breakup and rendezvous signal (Figure 4-6).
d.
Ensure the Wingman acknowledges the signal.
e.
Check the area is clear.
f.
Kiss off and call for a break away from the Wingman (Figure 4-7).
