Increase our skills in performing a smooth large-scale CASE 1 recovery, nailing timing, situation awareness and comms.
Rounding off a mission with a solid CASE 1 recovery is great because:
1) It’s nice to survive after a mission.
2) It’s nice when everybody lands within a short window of time, so that people don’t need to sit around and wait for others to land before we can start the debriefing.
1) Before we start flying, we’ll quickly go through the procedures in the step brief, covering the most common pitfalls and such.
2) There will be a charlie time (i.e when the first aircraft is expected to show up in the groove) and prebriefed stack altitudes.
3) Everyone will start airborne approx 75 nm from the carrier.
4) Each flight should setup their aircraft following HAIL-R.
5) Flights check in with marshal at 50 nm and perform CASE 1 recovery.
6) When everyone is down, we’ll make a very quick halftime debrief, and then we do it all again!
We’ll go through the Tacview and evaluate how smooth things went. Special attention will be directed towards:
1) Did we make safe but swift descends and commences in the stack to keep the tempo at a good pace?
2) Did we have enough SA to not cut each other off when entering the pattern?
3) Were we strict enough in avoiding downwind extensions?
4) Were bolters handled in a correct fashion? (i.e turn right aligning with BRC, climb to 600′, turn left into pattern WHEN CLEAR, i.e last downwind aircraft is behind you 30-45 degrees).
