CHAPTER FOUR
T-6A FORMATION
6.
The Lead student will:
a.
Keep the pilot informed of significant changes in position by the Wingman. Student
will call out Wingman's clock position while learning how to effectively position
their body for high "G" flight.
b.
Continue to maintain lookout doctrine.
c.
Make altitude calls from 12,500 feet Mean Sea Level (MSL) and below at 500 feet
intervals for Minute of Angle (MOA) operations, 6500 MSL and below for the low
formation area.
d.
Report approaching minimum or maximum "Gs" (i.e., less than 1 or greater than 5, or
120 KIAS).
7.
The Wing student will:
a.
Advise his pilot of any significant changes in the attitude and airspeed of his aircraft.
b.
Continue to maintain lookout doctrine.
c.
Make altitude calls from 12,500 feet MSL and below at 500 feet intervals for MOA
operations, 6500 MSL and below for the low formation area.
d.
Report approaching minimum or maximum "Gs" (i.e., less than 11 or greater than 5 or
120 KIAS).
Cruise maneuvering will end using the appropriate "terminate" calls on the radio (covered later).
Lead will then maintain 200 KIAS and will signal the Wingman to the parade position for a lead
change or leave the Wingman in cruise for a VFR recovery.
408. TACTICAL FORMATION
Students will be introduced to the tactical significance of tactical formations (also referred to as
combat spread). Specifically, they will learn how to establish and maintain combat spread,
remain in the working area, tactically turn a section 45, 90, and 180, and develop and practice
positive lookout doctrine.
1.
Combat Spread Position. The traditional Wingman combat spread position is 1 - 2 Nautical
Miles (NM) abeam the Lead with 1000 to 1500 feet of step-up. Due to the T-6's smaller size and
turn radius, its combat spread position is reduced to an abeam distance of 1/4 NM (.3 DME) with
200 feet of step-up.
2.  Lookout Doctrine. Success in air-to-air combat begins with early detection of the enemy.
Each crewmember must develop an effective scan pattern in coordination with the other aircraft.
