Into the Wingman
The lead initiates the turn by calling, [Call sign], in-place right/left. The wingman acknowledges, [Two].
Both lead and wingman add power and begin engaging (energy sustaining) turns of 180 degrees while
maintaining 300 KIAS, 14 units AOA, and approximately 70 degrees AOB (Figure 11).
The wingman loses sight of the lead aircraft but continues the turn by maintaining airspeed and AOA.
After 90 degrees the lead will check the wingmans six and call, Six clear. Upon regaining sight of the
lead, the wingman checks his six and calls, Visual, six clear. The wingman then continues to maneuver
to combat spread maintaining 300 KIAS. Make corrections after re-acquiring the lead at approximately
135 degrees of turn. Failure to correct causes you to end up out of position. The wingman should
constantly use an inside/outside scan in order to maintain position.
