304. OPERATIONS CHECK
The initial operations check (commonly referred to as a "fuel check") will be given after join-up
on the climbout (Figure 3-2). The Wingman should immediately signal his fuel (rounded down
to the nearest 10 pounds) to the Lead as soon as both lead aviators look. This is done quickly to
minimize the time the lead aircraft has to stare at the Wingman. Lead will respond with their
fuel state and then look at the Wingman again for a head nod, confirming all signals have been
received and understood. The Lead student shall include the Wingman's fuel in his operations
check to the Lead pilot remembering the flight only has as much fuel as the lowest aircraft.
Subsequent operations checks should be given throughout the course of the mission (at least
every 20-25 minutes and following any lead change).
