(3) Progress Check Procedures
(a) The Progress Check Pilot shall consider the
student's proficiency, judgment, air sense, and overall ability
to maneuver the aircraft safely and confidently. The student
must also demonstrate the potential to successfully complete MNTS
be full mission profiles emphasizing the student's weak areas and
a representative cross section of area and pattern maneuvers.
All critical items do not need to be accomplished. Document
failed progress checks on a pink-colored version of the
respective ATF for the failed event generating the progress
check. Flight and Ready Room unsatisfactories proceed in
separate, parallel tracks.
1. The student's first flight progress check is
an IPC/F (SXX88) event. Any subsequent flight progress check is
an FPC/F (SXX89). Previous RRUs do not affect this progression.
2. Similarly, the first RRU generates an IPC/R.
A subsequent RRU generates an FPC/R. Previous flight progress
checks do not affect this progression.
(b) IPC. The following defines when to conduct an
IPC, IPC outcomes, and IPC IPs.
Criteria for an IPC/F are:
Failed check ride.
b. Three consecutive unsatisfactory events
in the same stage, not including XX87 events.
Criteria for an IPC/R are:
Following an RRU.
Following two academic test failures.
Receiving an officer-like qualities (OLQ)
Operations Officer or above directed when the
Potential to complete MNTS is in doubt.
OLQs are inadequate.
