How many aircraft can SKE hold?
36 but limited to 31 due to Master Range (10 NM)
How close must you be to selected leader for TWS to work?
Assmbly airspeeds for lead and wing?
Lead 180. Wing 190 till assembly alt then 210.
What TIT and climb rate for T/O.
970 TIT 1500 Fpm
What TIT and VVI for enroute climbs and descents?
Climbs 970 and 1000 Fpm
Descents 600 and 1000 Fpm
What TIT for airspeed changes? FCI for speed or headign changes in excess of?
900 or 600. 10 knots or 10 degrees heading
SKE lead change procedure?
Old leader turns 45 degrees away from base heading in the
safest direction until 1 NM XTRK from the form; resets appropriate
XTRK, range, and leader number; and drifts back to rejoin at the end of the
formation. If VMC, the old leader may join at a coordinated position within the formation. The follower aircraft selects the new leader number and resets
crosstrack and range as required to maintain appropriate spacing between elements. New lead performs an FCI check.
Loss of SKE individual aircraft?
Break out of the formation in the safest direction, and rejoin VFR at the end
of the formation OR
• Obtain a separate clearance and proceed single-ship. IF in VMC, if only the DVST/PPI is inoperative, aircraft may elect to maintain position with the lead’s concurrence. Wingmen may fly the route, drop,and recovery.
Loss of SKE individual aircraft IMC?
When in IMC, if safe, do not turn the formation until the situation is resolved. Use other means of positioning (radar, A/A TACAN) to maintain
formation positioning while resolving the problem. Troubleshoot the SKE system
to resolve the problem. Switch masters and frequencies, recycle the SKE system by turning it off, and then back on. It takes approximately 30 seconds to
re-synchronize the SKE system after each change. Sustained loss of all SKE
indications require a breakout. Use the following procedure if an alternate plan was not briefed:
1. Loss of SKE strgt and level?
2. Loss of SKE in turn?
3. Loss of SKE in climb or descent?
1. Climb 500 feet turn 30 dgress for 20 sec and return to base heading.
2. Roll out climb 500 feet.
3. Roll out (AR) level off.
Overrun for Element Lead?
Set an additional 800 feet
cross-track and monitor position on the TWS and PPI/DVST/RDU. If crosstrack is zero, turn in the safest direction based on airspace restrictions, flight path, and terrain obstructions; set 800 feet crosstrack; and monitor position on the TWS and PPI/DVST/RDU.
Overrun for Wingman?
Start a turn in the direction of the set crosstrack, set an
additional 300 feet crosstrack, and monitor position. Aircraft will announce overrun by formation position. After the correct spacing has been attained,
reestablish formation position. If not in a safe drop position by 1 minute prior to TOT, abort the drop.
700 AS SKE contract for Lead, Wing and Elem Lead?
LD: +/-150 YDS (SCNS XTRK)
WG: =+/- 100 YDS (TWS), SKE TIMING
EL: +/- 150 YDS (TWS & SCNS XTRK), +/- 3 SEC
Donot descend from IFR enroute to IFR drop alt unless?
1. Lead's position is positively known
2. The entire form is within 3NM of centerline
3. Last plane in form is inside DZ entry
Staying in positon ITRK techniques? XTRK techniques?
Keep all heading corrections within the span of the marker (5 deg) to avoid over correcting. To correct in-track spacing, use 5 knots for 500-foot corrections, 10 knots for 1,000 feet,
20 knots for 2,000 feet.
