1 CNATRA Embarked Carrier Qualification Brief

2 CQ Brief Admin Items ORM Medical readiness Crew rest (10 hours embarked) Flight time limits 2 flights/3 man-ups, 3.5 hours/flight, 5.0 hours total (2 flights) Line Up / Qual Numbers Times Walk Man-up GTS start (Clearance from plane captain) Takeoff Weather Ship / Enroute / Divert & Bingo Fields Waypoint Plan

3 CQ Brief Communications Radio 1 Tower Departure Warning Area Approach Tower Ground Radio 2 Lead safe Common Atis CNATRA Base

4 CQ Brief Aircraft Man-up Sign ADB in maintenance prior to walking Cold start/Flight deck Location of A/C ( from flight deck control; escort required) Beware of intakes, exhausts, and propellers! Avoid landing area if flight operations are in progress

5 CQ Brief Preflight Normal Preflight Special attention to: Tire Pressure Launch bar Holdback assembly Landing gear (servicing, security) Tailhook (security, GREASED) Tailhook snubber pressure (950 psi ± 50) Dont preflight hook if tail over water Cockpit Instruments secure No loose gear, minimum pubs Cat grip Rear Cockpit soloized

6 CQ Brief Deck Procedures Alignment procedures Call tower: side number, up and ready, gross weight No hook check if tail over water Must have hook checked prior to crossing JBD

7 CQ Brief Deck Procedures Taxi to JBD Route and placement of director Notify tower/deck personnel if fuel is at or below hold down Takeoff checklist prior to JBD (full flaps, 3.5 o nose up trim, RADALT set to 40) Baro Altimeter should indicate approx. 60 Weight board / signals (500# increments) STOP IF YOU LOSE SIGHT DO NOT lower launch bar prior to rogering a correct weight board

8 CQ Brief Deck Procedures Catapult procedures Watch the director Taxi slowly. Extend launch bar when directed. Use high gain NWS only when directed (±20 degrees; low gain not available) Taxi slowly into hold back fitting (Update BRC on CDI) Tension signal Remain at idle HEELS ON DECK - OFF BRAKES!! Run-up signal MRT - Use cat grip Retract launch bar (when at MIL) Wipeout controls/Rudder pedals (check gauges/instruments) Head against seat Salute the Catapult Officer- HEELS ON DECK

9 CQ Brief Deck Procedures Catapult procedures (cont.) Catapult techniques Hold stick lightly - allow it to come back aft during the stroke, then set deg attitude as A/C flies away Scan ADI, AOA, Airspeed. Proceed upwind minimum 1.0 NM before turning downwind if only a/c in pattern Suspend Prior to salute - Shake head no, broadcast Suspend, Suspend) After salute - same but be ready to go Remain at MRT until Cat Officer moves in front of A/C with throttle back signal

10 CQ Brief CV Pattern Pilot controlled pattern Interval – 7 oclock Fly instruments scan alt, heading Tacan Gouge Bearing 30 o DME: 2.0 Bearing 45 o DME: ABEAMDME: Downwind Landing Checklist –Harness –Check: Anti-skid – Off –Hook - Up for 2 touch-and-gos (unless directed otherwise) RADALT: set to 450 AOA/airspeed/fuel state cross check Abeam call Qual #, Abeam

11 CQ Brief CV Pattern Approach Turn Abeam position: 0.9 to 1.1 NM Turn at LSO platform (Just see the white of the round down) 90 degree position: 450 AGL 45 degree position: AGL Dont look for the ball early Ball acquisition - check VSI and adjust ( FPM) No lower than 300 AGL without a ball FLY THE NUMBERS – Avoid looking outside the cockpit early in the approach turn….You will appear high and too close abeam

12 CQ Brief CV Pattern

13 CQ Brief CV Pattern Glideslope Work to a good start Call the ball: (Side #, Goshawk ball, fuel state, qual #) Meatball, Lineup, Angle of Attack Fly the ball to touchdown. Landing should be a surprise. MRT and S/B in upon touchdown ALL THE WAY TO A STOP Lineup corrections all the way down Meatball is inaccurate unless you are on centerline DO NOT SPOT THE DECK Always keep your scan moving NEVER ACCEPT A LOW BALL, OR LEAD A LOW DO NOT RECENTER A HIGH BALL IN CLOSE DO NOT TAKE YOUR OWN WAVEOFF

14 CQ Brief

15 Response to LSO LSO Calls Advisory (ie. winds 25 knots port) Informative (ie. youre lined up left, youre slow) Imperative (ie. power, right for line-up) Line-up calls in close Scan shifts to meatball / AOA

16 CQ Brief CV Pattern Waveoffs Mandatory Straight ahead (up the angle) unless otherwise directed Do not over-rotate - Hold 17 units AOA landing attitude T&G or Bolter MRT, S/B in, rotate and climb to 600 Turn to PARALLEL BRC AT THE BOW First aircraft to bow has priority in the pattern Downwind Turn with interval at 7 oclock or when directed by tower Ask for interval if necessary (no one on the ball)

17 CQ Brief CV Pattern Delta Pattern EASY – Gear & Flaps down, S/B in, 150kts CLEAN – Max Endurance (Maintain Interval) First A/C abeam after CHARLIE call commences the approach turn

18 CQ Brief Deck Procedures Arrestment Fly the ball all the way to touchdown MRT, S/Bs in all the way to full stop!!! (no cut passes) Yellow shirt director at 1-2 oclock - watch signals (off brakes, pull back, raise hook) Leaving landing area Use high-gain NWS Taxi director signals – above and below waist Follow taxi director If unsure, STOP and ask Tower Clear the foul line expeditiously but controlled Keep your head out of the cockpit

19 CQ Brief Refueling Refueling Procedures Locations Review push-back procedures Signals for chocks and chains Canopy closed Purple shirt refueling signals Cut signal at 2800# Call tower: side number, up and ready, gross weight (as necessary) Mask: On, Takeoff Checks: Complete, prior to pulling chocks/chains

20 CQ Brief Aircraft Hot Switch Hot Switches Aircraft chocked and chained Seat safed and parking brake set Throttle friction: On Leave electrical equipment on Unstrap, loosen lap straps, seat up and rudder pedals extended Upon signal from PC and intake screen in place, Canopy: Open. Debrief oncoming pilot after switching

21 CQ Brief Normal Departures Case I Perform clearing turn Maintain kts until 7nm then climb on course (shortest direction) Contact departure for RTB instructions Stay outside 10 DME If directed to join on a lead safe tower will pass appropriate information 250kt rendezvous, join to the outside of the turn in echelon Switch up back radio Do not leave warning area until 2-way comm establised with Sealord

22 CQ Brief Normal Departures Case II Perform clearing turn Climb to 500 straight ahead at 300kts 7nm turn to intercept the 10DME arc Turn appropriate direction for the departure radial Remain VMC established outbound Rendezvous VFR on top Tacan Rdvs Mandatory reports Airborne Arcing Outbound VMC when on departure radial

23 CQ Brief RTB Enroute from ship Feet dry checklist Anti-skid switch: On (light will come on when gear down) Lights: On (taxi, anti-collision, strobe, position, form, pinky switch) Course Rules

24 CQ Brief Fuel Management Individual pilot responsibility Note bingo distance, bearing, range, fuel required Hold down fuel= Gear Down / Flaps Up Bingo #s

25 CQ Brief Bingo Procedures Be prepared to Bingo at all times Update Bingo profile as provided by Tower Notify Tower when at bingo fuel THIS IS AN EMERGENCY PROCEDURE Turn to Bingo heading and clean up (including hook) Accelerate to 300 KTS - level (clear traffic/overhead pattern) Commence MRT climb to pre-determined altitude (PCL chart) Dont wait for safety pilot to join: Leadsafe will run you down Switch departure and dial up Bingo field TACAN - Squawk 7700 IMC as necessary to preserve Bingo profile

26 CQ Brief Bingo Procedures Contact approach control for coordination: state emergency fuel situation Determine best pattern entry - downwind, base leg, VFR straight in, or emergency fuel GCA Heads up for other aircraft Feet dry checklist- Hook: Up, Anti-collision/strobe light: On, Anti-skid: On Land on speed Remember carrier pressurized tires…plan full runway rollout, wet runway Safety pilot techniques – Lead vs. Wingman, etc…

27 CQ Brief Emergencies Suspend NORDO - Fly aircraft first, then check switches and fittings Fly normal pattern, watch for cut lights; waveoff as directed. Subsequent cut lights: Power Remain in the pattern until you trap or you are joined on by a lead safe If bingo fuel - BINGO / Squawk 7700 If you require immediate landing, Landing light: On. LSO will use cut lights to Roger ball

28 CQ Brief Emergencies Loss of NAVAIDS Lost Plane Lost sight / Inadvertent IMC Down Plane / SAR Bird strike Midair Landing gear malfunctions (probable steer / dirty bingo) Brake failure Airborne - probable steer and short field arrest On deck - drop hook and transmit to Tower

29 CQ Brief Emergencies Catapult emergencies (cold, soft, holdback failure, hangfire, suspend) Flameout (airborne/during catapult) Blown tire / Smoked tire Expect field arrestment with LSO talk down Hydraulic failure - dirty bingo Launch bar warning light/launch bar down airborne Accel light Brake Pressure caution light System failure Low altitude ejection (clean and dirty)

30 CQ Brief Miscellaneous NATOPS and other QOD Yellow sheets -A for CV ops; log traps, cat shots, T&Gs, bolters and field landing Flight isn't over until you are out of the aircraft and the paperwork is done and you have reported to the SDO

31 CQ Brief You earn your reputation at the ship Be professional and alert Be the ball.
