Define the control zone?
10NM radus surface up to and including 2,500 feet
Define Control Area?
100NM radius surface to unlimited

Squadron Operations Duty Officer
True or False: Prifly/HDC shall not require a frequency change or heading change prior to reaching 300 feet unless reuired for safety reasons.
Describe helicopter Case I departure procedures?
Helicopters shall clear the control zone at or below 300 feet or as directed by Prifly. Rendezvous shall be accomplished at briefed points in accordnance with squadron tactical doctrine.
Describe helicopter Case II departure procedures?
helicopter's shall depart via case I departure and maintain flight integrity below the clouds.
Describe helicopter Case III departure procedures?
helicopters shall launch at not less than 1-minute intervals, climb straight ahead to 500 feet, and intercept the 3-mile arc. They shall arc at 3 miles to intercept assigned departure radials. Upon reaching the assigned departure radial, turn outbound and commence climb to assigned altitude.
Describe Case I VSTOL departure procedures?
After takeoff, aircraft proceed straight ahead on BRC, climb to 500 feet and 7 miles. Execute unrestricted climb in VMC beyond 7 miles.
Describe Case II VSTOL departure procedures?
After takeoff, aircraft proceed straight ahead on BRC, climbing to 500 feet and 7 miles. At 7NM, turn to intercept the 10-mile arc to intercetp the assigned departure radial. The 500-foot limit is removed past 7 miles if climb can be continued in VMC.
Where shall VSTOL aircraft rendezvous during Case II operations?
Between 20 and 50 NM from the ship on the left side of the departure radial.
Describe V/STOL Case III departure procedures?
After takeoff, aircraft climb on BRC, accelerating to 300 knots and crossing the 5NM fix at 1,500 feet or above. Intercept and maintain the 10-miles arc until intercepting the assigned departure radial. At the 10-mile arc, commence a 300 knot climb to assigned departure altitude.
During mixed operations, there shall be ____ minute launch interval between the last helicopter and first V/STOL.
Describe the overhead Delta pattern for helicopter?
the overhead delta pattern is a VFR left-hand racetrach pattern established in the vicinity of the ship. It is oriented on the BRC and close aboard the starboard side at an optimum airspeed.
Describe the Starboard Delta Pattern for helicopters?
established on the starboard side of the ship between the 045 and 110 radials relative to the BRC between 1 and 3 miles. It si a right-hand racetrack flown at 300 feet and 80 knots.
Describe the port Delta pattern for helicopters?
A holding pattern established on the port side of the ship between the 225 and the 315 radials relative to the BRC between 3 and 5 miles. It is a left-hand racetrack flown at 300 feet and 80 knots.
Describe the helicopter Charlie pattern?
a left-hand racetrack pattern on the port side of the ship. The upwind leg parallels the BRC.
Describe the helicopter night Case I recovery pattern?
A left-hand pattern on the port side of the ship. Tha pattern is extended downwind allowing for a complete turn to final prior to beginning descent.
Which two approaches are the standard night case I helicopter landing patterns.?
The Charlie pattern, and the night case I helicopter recovery pattern
