|Flight Report:||1)Guppy and Sparky flyin' today
2) not really a combat flight so there were no threats nor targets
3)all told about 2.5 flight hours
4)Procedures Practice: Did an cold-engine startup,
practiced Nav using waypoints with time critical points.
Also used outside references to locate airfields greater than sight distance.
I would like to point out several small factors:
1)We really need to instill a fear of low fuel landings, Guppy somehow
burned 13k more then I even though we were flying almost the same
Alt and Speed.
we also need to work on landings; both Short field and normal operations.
2)We need to setup some protocol about radio commands, such as the
definition of Weapons Cold, Fights on/off I've found that even after giving
weapons cold, master OFF I still see tracers whizzing past my canopy!
