CHAPTER EIGHT
SECTION NAVIGATION PROCEDURES
800. INTRODUCTION
This chapter discusses section navigation procedures.
801. SECTION NAVIGATION PROCEDURES
The purpose of the formation Navigation (NAV) flight is to introduce students to the basic
considerations and procedures for formation maneuvering, particularly in the low altitude regime.
1.
The formation procedures, as previously discussed in this FTI, will be applicable to this
flight.
2.
The student NFO/WSO will be in the rear cockpit for the F5101/F5102 flights.
3.  The VR-1024 route should be flown as an out-and-in at 240 KIAS with the section in
tactical formation at an altitude between 500 and 1500 feet AGL, route and weather permitting.
Refer to the AP-1B for turn point coordinates. Plan on the first student leading out of NPA and
through VR-1024 PT A - PT G while the second student leads from the out field through PT G -
PT M and back to NPA. Students will draw the route corridor on the charts in black ink. This
information is obtained from the AP-11B. Students may pick the best turnpoint within the turn
circle as long as the flight will stay within the boundary of the route corridor. While on the route,
squawk 4000 and plan on flying the route using uncalled tactical turns. These turns will require a
detailed briefing because of the nonstandard geometry involved (i.e., some turns may only be 30
and you will execute them as uncalled 45s). You will want to brief which side you want your
Wingman on for route entry. A wing dip into Wingman is a good technique for a clock hack.
Brief all turns, all planned shackles and brief the formation considerations for route exit. The
students should plan on having the lead aircraft on the outside of all turns. This allows the wing
student to know exactly when the Lead marked on top of each point. When the lead aircraft
commences his tac turn into the Wingman, the Lead has marked on top.
NOTE
If WX or scheduling conflicts preclude the use of the VR-1024,
you may be rescheduled to fly one of the NAV routes which you
previously would have flown.
4.  It is the responsibility of the student to keep the flight on course within 2 NM. Course
corrections will be accomplished just as in earlier NAVs (Wingmen will use these course
corrections as a reference to build SA since the priority will be to maintain a good tactical
formation). Although it is important to arrive at a turnpoint on course, the priority for the
F5101/F5102 will be to over fly the turnpoint. Therefore, once Lead has the turn point in sight,
he will accomplish a check-turn to overfly the turnpoint. This will minimize the need for large
