Formation takeoff and landing minimums are:
the minimums for the airport navigation aid
used, but not lower than 200 feet and one-mile visibility (RVR 50).
Formation takeoff and landing

During IFR formation operations:
adhere to both ceiling and visibility minimums.
Formation takeoff and landing

If departure ceiling or visibility is below:
published landing minimums, but above 200 feet and one-mile visibility (RVR 50), the formation may take off if the requirements for a departure alternate as prescribed in Chapter 6, are met.
The minimum takeoff interval between aircraft is:
15-seconds.
Formation takeoff and landing

If the runway has dual RVR readouts (approach and departure end of the runway):
both ends must be at least RVR 50.
Minimum taxi interval with 4 engines running is:
one aircraft length
For aborts during formation takeoff, the navigator:
immediately transmits an abort call (three times using formation position number) on interplane and the copilot on primary frequency.
For aborts during formation takeoff (aircraft without "hot mike" capability on primary radio):
the navigator transmits the abort call on primary, and the copilot (or navigator if the copilot is occupied with emergency procedures) transmits on interplane.
Minimum taxi interval with 2 engines running is:
two aircraft lengths
Accomplish a SKE flight command indicator (FCI) check:
prior to takeoff.
Consider not using _______ or _______ for interplane during takeoff.
Have Quick; secure radio
When departure alternate is required, the aircraft must be capable of maintaining:
the MEA or MOCA, whichever is higher, to the alternate using one engine-out performance criteria.
To qualify as a departure alternate, existing weather at an alternate within 30-minutes flying time must be:
equal to, or better than the published approach minimums, and forecast to remain so until 1 hour after takeoff, but in no case forecast to be lower than 200-1/2 (RVR 2400).
To prevent damage to succeeding aircraft, do not advance power above:
flight idle until takeoff roll is started.

During cruise, formation leaders normally fly _____KIAS above _____.
190; 15,000'
During en-route altitude changes, formation leaders normally fly _____KIAS and _____FPM.
Enroute Airspeed or As Briefed;
1,000 FPM or As Briefed
During descending slowdown, formation leaders normally fly ______KIAS and _____FPM below ______.
140 KIAS;
1,000 FPM;
10,000'
During descending slowdown, formation leaders normally fly ______KIAS and _____FPM above ______.

Element leads are limited to ___degrees of bank for AWADS/SKE operations.
20
_________ radio will be used when available.
HAVE QUICK and secure
Airborne Aborts
Departure. Aircraft aborting during assembly will:
- execute prebriefed emergency procedures
- hold clear of departing traffic unless an
immediate landing is necessary
- Remain in VMC if possible
- notify lead
- contact the appropriate controlling agency.
Airborne Aborts
En Route. Aircraft aborting after assembly will:
notify lead
When directed, turn away from formation in a safe direction
