POLICY AND ADMINISTRATION

1.1. General. MCI 10-202-series volumes prescribe basic policy and guidance for training United States Air Force aircrews, including aeromedical evacuation crewmembers, in C-5, C-9, KC-10, C-12, C-17, C-20, C-21, C-22, VC-25, C-29, C/KC-135, C-137, and C-141 aircraft. This volume defines and establishes minimum aircrew training requirements necessary to complete operational missions.

1.1.1. Weapon system training requirements are maintained in individual MCI 10-202 volumes as follows:

Volume 1--Policies, Organization, and Administration (All) Volume 6--C/KC-135
Volume 2--Operational Support Aircraft (OSA) Volume 7--C-17
Volume 3--KC-10 Volume 8--Not used
Volume 4--C-141 Volume 9--Aeromedical Evacuation Crewmembers
Volume 5--C-5

1.1.2. Training Objective. The overall objective of the aircrew training program is to develop and maintain a high state of mission readiness for immediate and effective employment in exercises, peace-keeping operations, contingencies, and conventional or nuclear war.

1.1.3. Use of Flying Hours. We must use our training hours in a manner that demonstrates good stewardship of the taxpayers' money. We justify those hours on the basis of maintaining wartime readiness, and Congress and the public expect us to use them accordingly. Each training mission must be structured to achieve maximum training. Any by-product airlift opportunity resulting from training must not degrade the intended training in any way and must comply with applicable Department of Defense (DoD) instructions. Any use of flying training hours to accomplish other than direct training requirements must be approved by the appropriate numbered Air Force commander (NGB/CF for Air National Guard [ANG]). It is essential that all personnel at all levels prevent the misuse of air mobility resources as well as the perception of their misuse.

1.1.3.1. Training on Operational Missions. Unless specifically prohibited or restricted by weapon system operating procedures or specific theater operations order (OPORD), the operations group commander or air reserve component (ARC) equivalent may allow upgrade or special qualification training on operational missions. Commanders will ensure the training will not impact mission effectiveness and the crewmember receiving training is under the supervision of an instructor of like specialty.

1.2. Responsibilities:

1.2.1. AMC Headquarters. AMC is the OPR for training policy in coordination with other MAJCOMs and applicable aircrew training system (ATS) contractors. AMC is responsible for training course requirements, training tasks, and quota control in coordination with other headquarters as follows:

1.2.1.1. Courses. The AMC Director of Operations (DO), in coordination with other MAJCOMs, approves courses. Send proposals for amending existing course prerequisites or deleting obsolete courses through the appropriate headquarters to HQ AMC/DOT for approval. HQ AMC/DOT will process the approved changes in coordination with the AFCAT 36-2223, USAF Formal Schools, office of primary responsibility (OPR).

1.2.1.2. Command Curriculum Review Workshop (CCRW). HQ AMC/DOT hosts a CCRW each fiscal year. The CCRW reviews all training programs for currency, applicability, compliance and effectiveness. Attendees should include training representatives from HQ AMC/DOT/SG, AMWC/WCOX, ACC, AETC, AFRES, NGB, PACAF, USAFE, Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC), Air Force Flight Standards Agency (AFFSA), curriculum developers, formal schools, numbered Air Force (NAF) training and standardization offices, selected unit representatives, and ATS contractors.

1.2.1.3. Programmed Flying Training (PFT). HQ AMC/DOT determines the number of training quotas available and allocates quotas according to AFCAT 36-2223 in coordination with other MAJCOMs, users, and applicable ATS contractors. HQ AETC/XOT (or designated representative) publishes PFT pamphlets and, if required, amends pamphlets through change notifications in coordination with respective training managers.

1.2.1.4. AMC units will send projected PFT requirements to HQ AMC/DOT. Other units (including ANG and USAFR) will send projected PFT requirements to HQ AMC/DOT through their parent MAJCOMs.

1.2.2. Other MAJCOMs. MAJCOMs will supervise, monitor, and evaluate their squadrons' training programs and provide their unique training requirements and program modifications to HQ AMC/DOT as necessary.

1.2.2.1. Supplements to MCI 10-202. MAJCOM specific guidance may be published in chapter 7.

1.2.2.2. Exceptions to guidance in the basic volumes, chapters 1-6 and attachments, may be annotated by "EXCEPTION: ...," or "N/A" or "not applicable...," e.g., "N/A" or "not applicable for ARC, ANG, or USAFR."

1.2.3. Operations Groups. The operations group will convene a training review panel (TRP). The operations group will determine frequency, format and content of the meetings. The TRP should review staff and aircrew management actions necessary to complete the squadrons' flight and ground training programs.

1.2.3.1. The operations group will establish procedures with the servicing military personnel flight (MPF) for individual counseling and personnel system updates for the active duty service commitment (ADSC) incurred (not applicable for ARC). Training conducted according to MCI 10-202-series volumes that is intended to result in initial qualification, requalification, or upgrade in a crew position will result in an ADSC according to AFI 36-2107, Active Duty Service Commitments (ADSC) and Specialized Period of Time Contracts (SPTC), and AFCAT 36-2223. Requalification includes training for loss of currency exceeding one year. The ADSC only applies to basic requalification in the aircraft, not subsequent in-unit requalification to a crew qualification previously held in that aircraft, such as requalification in air refueling (AR), airdrop (AD), aircraft commander, or instructor (formal school requalification will incur an ADSC).

1.2.3.2. The operations group, in coordination with the flying squadrons, will determine the functions and responsibilities of the operations support squadron (OSS) training flight. Any flight commander training functions stipulated in this volume may also be performed by appropriate OSS training flight personnel.

1.2.4. Squadrons. As a general rule, training management is at the squadron or detachment level; however, the wing or operations group commander is ultimately responsible for squadron training programs.

1.2.4.1. Squadron commanders will ensure aircrew members complete training in a timely manner. Failure to reasonably progress mandates action for removal if appropriate.

1.2.4.2. Ensure formal school post-graduate questionnaires are accomplished and returned to the formal schools. A copy of the questionnaire answer form will be retained by the gaining squadron for one year after completion of formal school training.

1.2.5. Formal SchoolATS Contractor: Develops, updates, and maintains courseware and training syllabi, and performs task and media analysis consistent with the applicable ATS contract (see applicable volume).

1.2.6. Formal SchoolNon-ATS. The unit develops, updates, and maintains courseware and training syllabi and performs task and media analysis associated with aircrew qualification training per AFI 36-2201, Developing, Managing, and Conducting Training, AFPAM 36-2211, Guide for Management of Air Force Training Systems, and AFMAN 36-2234, Instruction System Development.

In-unit training should begin no later than 45 days after reporting to a new duty station or unit.

1.6. Waiver Authority:

1.6.1. HQ AMC/DOT manages ATS contracts for weapon systems governed by MCI 10-202 (except C-12 and C-21 aircraft); therefore, HQ AMC/DOT possesses waiver authority for all student entry criteria to formal schools. EXCEPTION: The operations group commander may waive flying hour requirements. HQ ACC/DOY has waiver authority for EC/RC/WC/OC/TC-135 aircraft. Refer to MCI 10-202, volume 9, for AECM waivers.

1.6.2. Formal school operations group commander may waive completion of specific formal school events with concurrence from the gaining unit's operations group commander. If required for squadrons' designated mission, accomplish events waived at formal schools in-unit before assigning MR status.

1.6.3. The operations group commander or ARC-equivalent may waive MAJCOM-directed flying continuation training requirements for individuals assigned to their unit on a case-by case basis. See paragraph 4.9. of this instruction.

1.6.4. The operations group commander will submit all other waiver requests, according to applicable MCI 10-202 volumes, through proper MAJCOM channels and send information copies to HQ AMC/DOT.

1.6.5. Send copies of operations group commander approved waivers to the appropriate headquarters with information copies to HQ AMC/DOT. Place copies of MAJCOM approved waiver information in the individual's training folder or FEF. The reporting requirement in this paragraph is exempt from licensing in accordance with paragraph 2.11.12 of AFI 37-124, The Information Collections and Reports Management Program; Controlling Internal, Public, and Interagency Air Force Information Collections.

1.6.6. Aircrew members whose status is "duty not including flying (DNIF)" may log ground training events, including simulator, if the member's physical condition allows it. The flight surgeon who signs the AF Form 1042, Medical Recommendations for Flying or Special Operational Duty, placing the crewmember DNIF, should be consulted if the crewmember's ability to complete training is in question.

1.6.7. Aircrew members performing extended alert duty (more than 72 hours) may accomplish any type of ground training, during normal duty hours, that does not degrade required response time or mission accomplishment.

1.7. Waiver Format. Provide the following information on the referenced individual in a waiver request to the MAJCOM OPR with info copies to HQ AMC/DOT as applicable. Items should be numbered as below; those not utilized should be marked "N/A" ("not applicable"). Asterisked (*) items must be provided for all waivers; other items as appropriate.

Crew qualification to which person is qualifying or upgrading.
Previous attendance at any formal instructor course (include course identifier and graduation date).
Training start date.
Mandatory upgrade or qualification date.
Date event last accomplished and normal eligibility period.
Remarks, to include formal school courseware required.
1.8. Training Folder Management: (For C-17, only MC Form 46, Summary and Close-Out Report, procedures apply. See TMS in MCI 10-202, volume 7.)

1.8.1. Training Folders. A training folder will be initiated for initial qualification, requalification, mission qualification, special qualification, difference, upgrade, and additional training directed by the squadron commander or a flight examiner. The training folder will include training reports (MC Form 44, Aircrew Training Progress Report, and MC Form 45, Training Accomplishment Report, and MC Form 46), training guides, all waivers, and other records as applicable. The training documents will be placed in reverse chronological order with the most recent on top. (See attachment 3 of this volume for more information.)

1.8.1.1. Formal school records will be sent or hand-carried by the individual to the gaining unit for review and incorporation into the individual's training folder.

1.8.1.2. When a crewmember permanently changes station (PCS) or permanently changes assignment (PCA), training folders will be hand-carried by the individual to the gaining unit. Any incomplete training will be clearly identified on contractor-provided documentation or MC Forms 44 through 46 as appropriate.

1.8.2. Training Folder Review:

1.8.2.1. Operations review. The squadron commander, operations officer, or a designated representative will review active training folders quarterly and prior to a flight evaluation required to complete the training program (not applicable for formal school training). Operations review will be a separate entry in the training record and should include comments on the student's progress. Active training folders are folders of crewmembers undergoing initial, mission qualification, requalification, upgrade, special qualification (receiver AR, cell lead, AD, etc.), or commander directed additional training.

1.8.2.2. Monthly review. Flight commanders or their designated representative (section supervisors for ARC) will review active training folders monthly for continuity and student progression. Document this review and any recommendations in the training folder. For AECMs, this review can be accomplished by the senior nurse executive, respective superintendent, or other designated representative.

1.8.2.3. Training period review. Instructors will review training folders prior to each training period (flight or simulator) in order to develop a training plan. After each period, instructors will document training in sufficient detail to accurately assess student performance and make recommendations for subsequent training. At the satisfactory completion of all required training, the instructor will make a recommendation for an inflight evaluation. Students will review and initial training records (MC Form 44 or training guide) after each training period.

1.8.3. History of Training:

1.8.3.1. Documentation Procedures. The flight evaluation folder (FEF) maintains basic source documents to provide a current history of each individual's flying qualification in accordance with AFI 11-408 and appropriate MAJCOM Supplement. Under the AF Forms 942, Record of Evaluation, in section I of the FEF, include all certifications and special mission qualifications not annotated on AF Forms 8, Certification of Aircrew Qualification (i.e. formation lead, SIOP certification, touch-and-go-certification, low-level, low-level AR, etc.). Use AF Forms 1381, USAF Certification of Aircrew Training. Do not replicate the AF Form 1381 for the purpose of adding a required entry.

1.8.3.2. Maintain aircrew training folders in assigned squadron for one year following completion of training or on completion of a subsequent upgrade program. For example, a pilot successfully completes first pilot upgrade, then 6 months later the crewmember successfully completes aircraft commander upgrade. At this time, his or her first pilot training documents may be purged. (See paragraph 1.8.3.3.)

1.8.3.3. Place the MC Form 46, Summary Close-Out Report (not applicable for additional training), in section I of the FEF under AF Forms 942 and 1381. All other records may be returned to the individual. See AFR 4-20, volume 2 (to be AFMAN 37-139), table 51-1, rules 6 and 10, for additional information.

1.9. Evaluator and Instructor Usage. Use flight evaluators and instructors for any phase of training to capitalize on their expertise and experience.

1.10. Instructor Training and Supervision Requirements:

1.10.1. Instructors will comply with requirements of the specific MCI 10-202 volume. All instructors should be MR (wing-level and below).

1.10.2. The following personnel must be under the supervision of an instructor when performing aircrew duties (unless otherwise exempted in applicable volumes):

All noncurrent aircrew members.
All aircrew members in initial, upgrade or requalification flying training.
TL E and senior officers defined in AFI 11-408, Aircrew Standardization/Evaluation Program--Organization and Administrations, and paragraph 2.7 of this volume and any other personnel designated by the wing, operations group, or squadron commanders.

1.10.3. For unqualified, non-current, training level (TL) E or senior officer pilots, the instructor must be at a set of controls during critical phases of flight, or when an individual is regaining currency or qualification in specific events.

1.11. MR Crewmember. For SORTS, operational tasking, and deployments a mission-ready aircrew member is defined as one who is available, qualified, and certified in the squadron's mission (completed mission qualification training).

1.11.1. In addition, crewmembers must be current in the following minimum events:

Physical
Physiological training
Flight evaluation in the unit's mission
Flight currency events, except special mission qualifications that do not affect the wartime mission
MR events listed in the ground continuation training tables

1.11.2. With the operations group commander's approval:

NMR individuals may fly unsupervised on only CONUS training sorties if loss of MR status was for failure to complete ground or flying continuation training (does not include loss of currency).
Instructors and evaluators who are NMR because of failure to complete ground training may perform inflight instructor and evaluator duties provided the following events have been accomplished: applicable refresher simulators and phase training (G250), communications procedures (G080), and CRM training (G230 and G240).

EXCEPTION: A crewmember will not fly on any sortie if a recurring ground continuation training event annotated as "grounding" in the continuation training table is not accomplished. (See paragraph 4.9.4. for additional information.)

1.12. Unit Conversion. When possible, qualified personnel in other units will provide the initial cadre. In some instances, it will be necessary for units to form an initial cadre of aircrew personnel for whom certain training qualification requirements may be waived. The following conditions will apply to management of initial cadre aircrew qualification:

1.12.1. Form a nucleus of instructor and flight-examiner personnel (initial cadre) to begin aircrew conversion. Conduct qualification of these personnel according to MCI 10-202 volume. Converting units may request initial cadre waiver of PAI time requirement. Send waivers through channels and include the information specified in paragraph 1.6. Additionally, include the most recent aircraft flown and total time in that aircraft in the remarks' section of the waiver.

Initial cadre will not be designated in a crew position higher than currently held, e.g. C-141 MP to C-17 EP unless previously qualified in the conversion aircraft.
After final approval, publish a unit letter to identify initial cadre of instructors and flight examiners by crew qualification.

1.13. Administration of MCI 10-202 Volumes. Units will establish requirements for MCI 10-202 volumes through MAJCOM publications distribution channels in accordance with AFI 37-161, Distribution Management. MAJCOM supplements to MCI 10-202 volumes will be distributed within each MAJCOM using requirements from respective basic volumes. Send two copies to HQ AMC/DOT, 402 Scott Drive Unit 3A1, Scott AFB IL 62225-5302.

1.14. Changes. Proposed amendments and recommendations for improvements to MCI 10-202 volumes are encouraged. Send to HQ AMC/DOT through command channels on AF Form 847, Recommendation for Change of Publication (Flight Publications).

Chapter 2

QUALIFICATION TRAINING

2.1. Scope. This chapter specifies minimum training requirements for initial qualification, requalification, difference qualification, and senior officer courses.

2.2. General Requirements. The primary method of initial qualification is to attend and complete appropriate formal training course listed in AFCAT 36-2223. Completing the appropriate formal course satisfies all qualification training requirements. When attendance is not practical or quotas are not available, units may request waivers to conduct in-unit qualification training, using formal school courseware (see paragraph 1.6).

2.3. Qualification Training Prerequisites:

2.3.1. Before entering qualification training, each aircrew member must comply with the appropriate formal course training prerequisites prescribed in AFCAT 36-2223.

2.3.2. All personnel maintaining flying status (AFI 11-401) will meet the following requirements before flying:

Physiological training (AFI 11-403, Aerospace Physiological Training Program)
Flight physical

2.4. Ground Training Requirements for Aircrew Members. For in-unit qualification training, commanders will obtain and use the currently approved formal school courseware (see paragraph 1.6 and AFCAT 36-2223):

Academic Training--Accomplish all academic training requirements as directed in applicable courseware.
Written Examinations--Satisfy requirements of AFI 11-408 and MAJCOM guidance.
Egress and Life Support Equipment (LSE) Training--Must be completed before the first flight. Accomplish initial egress training on an aircraft.
MAJCOM Indoctrination Training (G001)--ATS contractor or formal school personnel may provide this training; although, some tasks may be accomplished on operational missions as part of mission qualifi-cation training. If the ATS contract or formal school does not provide indoctrination training, it will be accomplished by the gaining unit.
Ground training--Accomplish during initial qualification, difference, or requalification training; establishes due dates for subsequent continuation training.

2.5. Flying Training Requirements for Aircrew Members. Approved in-unit training must be accomplished according to applicable formal school courseware and the following guidance:

2.5.1. Flying training lessons should be completed in order; however, if mission scheduling or student progress dictates otherwise, the unit commander or designated training supervisor may change the order.

2.5.2. There should be a minimum time lapse between training missions and every effort should be made to complete qualification training requirements within the prescribed time period.

2.5.3. With the operations group commander's approval or ARC-equivalent approval, upgrade and special qualification training requirements may be completed during operational missions under the supervision of an instructor of like specialty. Comply with restrictions in appropriate MCI 11-2XX series instructions, MAJCOM directives, and applicable OPORDs.

2.6. Requalification Training Limits and Requirements. An aircrew member is unqualified on either loss of currency exceeding 12 months (see paragraph 4.10.) or expiration of his or her qualification evaluation, whichever occurs first. Requalification requirements are as follows:

Unqualified up to 2 years: Requires training as directed by the squadron commander and an inflight evaluation. Pilots and flight engineers require refresher simulator or phase training.
Unqualified 2 to 5 years: Complete appropriate AFCAT 36-2223 requalification academic course, in-unit or formal school flying training, and an inflight evaluation. The requalification academic course may be accomplished in-unit, with a waiver from the parent MAJCOM.
Unqualified over 5 years. Complete the appropriate AFCAT 36-2223 formal initial qualification course.

2.7. Senior Officer Qualification. Reserved for senior officer (0-6 and above) positions requiring operational flying. Senior officers will complete the appropriate senior officer course (unless already qualified), must fly with an instructor and will maintain training level E (not applicable for ANG) continuation training requirements. EXCEPTION: General officers in commander billets, NAF commanders, wing commanders and operations group commanders are eligible to fly without an instructor only in their primary assigned aircraft. These personnel must complete or have completed initial qualification in their primary assigned aircraft. Those senior officers who were previously qualified in their primary assigned aircraft via an initial qualification course may complete requalification training, in accordance with paragraph 2.6. Senior officers flying unsupervised must meet the above requirements, be current and qualified in the weapons system and maintain training level A continuation training requirements, including simulator requirements. Senior officer courses do not lead to unsupervised qualification in any weapon system.

2.8. Flight Surgeons. Will complete written qualification examination pertaining to their primary assigned aircraft administered by standardization-evaluation (stan/eval) and accomplish LSE training (LS01). They must also be thoroughly briefed on emergency exits and egress procedures prior to flying on any aircraft.

2.9. Reports. Feedback is an important tool for ATS instructors. Formal school ATS contractors will devise and implement student feedback questionnaires.

2.10. Failure To Complete Training. If any crewmember fails to complete a formal course, the formal school will send a recommendation to the individual's unit on whether he or she should complete training in-unit (which requires a waiver), be eliminated, or return to the formal school for training.

Chapter 3

MISSION QUALIFICATION TRAINING

3.1. Scope. This chapter prescribes minimum training requirements to qualify individuals in unit missions.

3.2. Mission Qualification Training. All crewmembers will complete mission qualification prior to entering special mission (e.g. AD or special operations) qualification or upgrade training.

3.3. Time Periods for Mission Qualification. Active duty crewmembers will complete mission qualification training within 90 days (180 days for ARC) of starting training or as established in the specific MCI 10-202 volume.

3.4. Ground Training Requirements. All academic ground training required for mission qualification will be completed prior to certification or qualification in the unit operational mission. In addition to requirements listed in specific MCI 10-202 volumes, the events listed in table 3-1 will be accomplished (not applicable for senior officers maintaining basic qualification).

NOTES:
1. Events may be accomplished at formal school or in-unit. Previously certified and qualified mission-ready crewmembers transferring between units or in a cross-flow program (between flying units) only need G002, G003, G120 and any applicable events in which they have lost currency.
2. Pilot upgrade crewmembers only need G001, G002 and other applicable events in which they are non-current.
3. AECMs do not require G002, G060, G080, S-V80-A, and S-V90-A.
4. Flight Surgeons only need G010, G120 and LS02.
5. G002 does not apply to IPSSs and CSOs.

3.4.1. Ground training accomplished during mission qualification establishes due dates for subsequent continuation training. Completion of S-V80-A and S-V90-A establishes the due date for recurring Combat Survival Training (LS03) and Water Survival Training (LS04).

3.5. Flying Training Requirements:

3.5.1. Basic qualified aircrew members pursuing MR status will accomplish Training Level "D" (see paragraph 4.3) continuation training requirements.

3.5.2. After arrival at duty station, crewmembers must receive a supervised duty familiarization or orientation flight and local flying area or associated hazards brief (not applicable for in-unit initial, requal, or upgrade training). See the applicable MCI 10-202 volume for specifics.

Chapter 4

CONTINUATION TRAINING

4.1. Scope. The continuation training program provides crewmembers with the volume, frequency, and mix of training necessary to perform unit missions.

4.2. Responsibilities:

4.2.1. MAJCOMs and NAFs will determine unit of attachment for their staff personnel in flying positions.

4.2.2. Squadron commander. The squadron commander or designated representative will ensure individuals receive training to successfully complete unit missions and maintain individual proficiency. The squadron commander will also determine the training level of each assigned crewmember.

4.2.3. Crewmembers. Each crewmember is responsible for monitoring and completing all training requirements.

4.3. Training Levels (TL). Before each semiannual period, the squadron commander will assign each crewmember a TL. TL assignment is based on experience and aircraft proficiency. Airlift aircrew members may have a different TL for different qualifications, i.e. a crewmember may be a TL "A" airland AC, but a TL "C" AD CP. TL definitions follow:

4.3.1. TL "A"highly experienced crewmembers. This may include MR or NMR AMC headquarters and TACC personnel; AETC instructors; NAF personnel; AMWC instructors; wing, operations group, and squadron commanders; operations officers, personnel assigned to OG evaluation positions, and any instructors assigned primarily to staff duties. Squadron commanders have the discretion to assign highly experienced MR line instructors to this level.

4.3.1.1. TL "B" experienced, mission ready crewmembers.

4.3.1.2. TL "C" MR crewmembers.

4.3.1.3. TL "D" basic qualified crewmembers. Designated primarily for basic qualified crewmembers who are pursuing MR status.

4.3.1.4. TL "E"-- basic qualified, non-instructor staff (may include senior officers, MAJCOM, NAF, and TACC individuals who are not maintaining MR or instructor status). TL E requirements are insufficient for MR status. Crewmembers assigned to TL E will fly with an instructor of like specialty at all times.

4.3.2. Copilots should be assigned to TL "C." If desired, squadron commanders may assign highly proficient copilots or first pilots to TLs "A" or "B."

4.3.3. Change of TL. Once the semiannual period begins, personnel should not be moved to a level requiring fewer events. EXCEPTION: Basic qualified crewmembers may be placed in a different TL any time after attaining MR status.

4.4. Crediting Event Accomplishment:

4.4.1. In addition to events accomplished on training and operational missions, those flight events accomplished on a satisfactory qualification, mission qualification, specialized mission qualification, or requalification evaluation may be credited towards the individual's currency requirements and establishes a subsequent due date.

NOTE: Ground training accomplished during initial qualification, mission qualification, upgrade, difference, or requalification training establishes due dates for subsequent continuation training. Completing S-V80-A and S-V90-A establishes the due date for recurring combat survival training (LS03) and water survival training (LS04).

4.4.2. Aircrew members who are unqualified in the aircraft due to an unsatisfactory flight evaluation will not log continuation training requirements for those events graded Q-3 until requalified.

4.5. Proration of Training. When determining the training requirements, prorate an individual on nonflying temporary duty (TDY), DNIF, civilian jobs (not applicable for active duty) or emergency leave. Prorate requirements for individuals changing training levels. Use the following formula to determine training requirements: number of months available times the event volume divided by the number of months in the training period. Round down to the nearest whole number but not less than 1 (e.g. 5.6 rounds to 5). Use table 4-1 to determine the number of months available. EXCEPTION: When an individual permanently changes station to a unit flying the same model aircraft and enters the same training level or lower, credit may be taken for training accomplished at the previous base. Prorate training requirements based on the time available (time at former base, plus time at new base, minus number of days not available) during the training period. Time available starts 7 days after sign-in for CONUS and 14 days after sign-in for OCONUS. Subtract previous accomplishments from the prorated total to determine remaining requirements. See MCI 10-202, volume 7 for C-17 proration of quarterly training requirements.

4.6. Dual-Seat Qualification:

4.6.1. IPs may fly in either seat. Additionally, non-IPs (aircrft commanders and first pilots) will be dual-seat qualified. These dual-seat qualified individuals must accomplish recurring qualification checks according to AFI 11-408 or MAJCOM publications. Copilots may not fly in the left seat unless under direct IP supervision. See the applicable MCI 10-202 volume for specific guidance.

4.6.2. Dual-seat aircraft commanders and first pilots may accomplish training events in either seat.

4.7. Dual-Aircraft Qualification. Crewmembers maintaining dual qualification in different model aircraft will, as a minimum, maintain TL "A" currency requirements in each aircraft (not applicable for senior officers; see paragraph 4.13.1).

4.8. Training Period. Base continuation flying training program on static 6-month periods (1 January-30 June and 1 July-31 December). MAJCOMs may vary training periods, provided the number and currency of events does not change, i.e. an annual training period would require doubling the events of tables 4-8 through 4-15.

4.9. Failure to Complete Continuation Training Requirements. Declare individuals NMR if they fail to complete ground and flying continuation training requirements. The following guidance applies:

4.9.1. For flying continuation events (includes all events listed in the flying continuation training tables), the squadron commander will review the crewmember's training period event accomplishments and recommend, to the operations group commander, training necessary to regain MR status. If this review shows enough flying events were recently accomplished to ensure MR proficiency, the operations group commander or equivalent may waive the MAJCOM-directed requirements. The same flying training events will not be waived for two consecutive training periods. This waiver authority must be used judiciously. The intent is to ensure crewmembers receive the proper quantity of flying events to remain proficient and allow the operations group commander to determine MR status and additional training requirements when those training quotas are not met. EXCEPTION: Flight currency will only be waived under extreme circumstances and only at the MAJCOM level. Flight currency is associated with those events denoted in the flying continuation training tables by a specific number of maximum-allowable-days-between-accomplishment in the "CUR" column. (See paragraph 4.10, Loss of Currency).

4.9.2. The operations group commander may extend an individuals MR status for unaccomplished ground continuation training. This extension will not exceed 90 days from the due date and in no case will the training be waived. The intent is for crewmembers to recieve all required ground training at the prescribed intervals. The operations group commander extension is allowed for unforeseen circumstances and only for events that will not degrade mission accomplishment.

4.9.3. Refer to AFI 11-401 for individuals transferring between aircraft or leaving active flying status. The provisions of AFI 11-401 also apply to all simulator training.

4.9.4. Failure to accomplish recurring ground egress training (G020), life support equipment training (LS01), flight physical (PP01), or physiological training (PP11) results in immediate grounding until the training is accomplished.

4.9.5. Make-up training is creditable towards the new training period.

4.9.6. See paragraph 1.11.2 for NMR crewmember flying policy.

4.10. Loss of Currency. Place individuals delinquent in one or more currency events in supervised training status for that event and declare them NMR in those unit missions requiring that event. Crewmembers are non-current the day after event currency expires; i.e., a crewmember who accomplished an event, with a 45-day currency, on 1 September becomes non-current on 16 October). Regain currency based on the time elapsed since becoming non-current as follows:

Less than 2 months. Flight with an instructor of like specialty to regain currency.
2 through 6 months. Squadron commander determines training and evaluation requirements.
Over 6 months but less than 1 year. Squadron commander determines training. Accomplish an evaluation in those non-current events.
More than 1 year. The individual is unqualified in the aircraft and must complete aircraft requalification. (See paragraph 2.6 for requalification training requirements.)

4.11. Ground Continuation Training Events. Aircrew members (TL A, B, C, and D) will comply with applicable requirements of tables 4-2 through 4-6. See attachment 2 for course descriptions.

4.11.1. Special mission aircraft (EC/RC/OC/WC/TC-135). Refer to ACC guidance.

4.11.2. Crewmembers attached to units (i.e. NAF, MAJCOM, AMWC, etc.) may accomplish ground training events at locations other than their units of attachment. Individuals are responsible for reporting accomplished training to their unit of attachment AFORMS office.

4.12. TL E and Senior Officer Ground Continuation Training Events. Individuals maintaining basic qualification are required to complete courses listed in table 4-7. Individuals maintaining MR status will comply with tables 4-2 or 4-3. See attachment 2 for course descriptions.

4.13. Flying Continuation Training Requirements. Aircrew members will comply with applicable requirements of tables 4-8 through 4-15. See attachment 1 for event descriptions. AMC senior leadership, defined as AMC/CC/CV, HQ AMC/DO; NAF/CC/CV/DO; wing/CC/CV, will maintain a minimum of TL E requirements in their primary aircraft. If qualifications are obtained in additional aircraft under their operational control, the following currency requirements will be accomplished in each additional weapon system:

One sortie per quarter.
One approach and landing per quarter.
Qualification exams and inflight qualification evaluation.

4.14. ATD Credit for Training Events. See the applicable MCI 10-202 volume.

4.15. Predeparture Training. The airfield qualification program (AQP) video tapes should be reviewed by aircrews prior to departure to an unfamiliar destination. Use of the simulator (if simulator database includes destination airfield) is encouraged.

NOTES:
1. Instructor and examiner loadmasters may credit a proficiency sortie (M 010) while instructing or evaluating.
2. Instructor and evaluator pilots may credit all quarterly and 50 percent of semiannual M030 requirements when performing instructor or evaluator duties on overseas
3. First pilots must fly one semiannual overseas sortie with a three pilot crew, assisting the aircraft commander with pilot-in-command duties.
4. One per quarter must be accomplished in the aircraft (normally during the DDS). Two per quarter may be accomplished in the WST. NOTE: As of printing
date,C-17 AVS is not certified to maintain AR currency. Until certification, monthly AR sorties are required in the aircraft.

UPGRADE TRAINING

5.1. Scope. This chapter identifies general prerequisites and training requirements for upgrade. See applicable MCI 10-202 volume for additional requirements

5.2. First Pilot: (as applicable to weapon system)

5.2.1. The first pilot program is part of a building block approach leading to aircraft commander upgrade. First pilot upgrade may begin on completion of one-half the total flight time required for aircraft commander upgrade.

5.2.2. Training, as a minimum, will include taxi, take-off, and landings from the left seat. Emergency procedures will be trained to proficiency prior to the first pilot qualification evaluation. The evaluation will include normal left-seat procedures, to include taxi, take-off, approach, and landing. This evaluation can be combined with a composite qualification evaluation.

5.3. Aircraft Commander (AC):

5.3.1 General. Flying time prerequisites required for upgrade are based on a copilot or first pilot having gained knowledge and judgment required to effectively accomplish unit missions. Unit commanders must ensure continuation training programs emphasize these areas. Flying experience should include left-seat time prior to entering formal school upgrade training. AC candidates must have an in-depth knowledge of systems, procedures, and instructions before entering the formal upgrade program. Additionally, the following guidance applies:

Select upgrade candidates based on upgrade potential, retainability, and mission requirements.
Fill all available quotas before requesting in-unit upgrade.
Use the approved ATS courseware (or command approved courseware for non-ATS).
For ground and flight training requirements and prerequisites, see the applicable MCI 10-202 volume.

5.3.2. In-Unit Upgrade. Formal school attendance is the primary method for AC qualification training. In-unit upgrade using courseware provided by the formal school is the secondary method. Send waiver request for in-unit upgrade to HQ AMC/DOT. Other than AMC units, send waiver request through command channels to the appropriate MAJCOM with an information copy to HQ AMC/DOT. Waiver requirement is not applicable for aircraft without a formal school.

5.3.3. Graduates of an aircraft commander course will be designated NMR aircraft commanders (not applicable for C-17; see MCI 10-202, volume 7). They will accomplish training level D aircraft commander continuation training requirements and can serve as an FP or CP augmentee while nonmission-ready. MR status, on completion of mission qualification training and associated evaluation and certification, will be validated by a review and certification board. There is no flying-hour requirement for MR status.

5.3.4. AMC mobility enhancement crossflow program-selects with at least 1400 flying hours and holding qualification of AC or higher will attend aircraft commander training for the crossflow aircraft.

5.4. Other Crew Positions. See the applicable MCI 10-202 volume.

NOTE: Should the DDS be incomplete (weather, wingman or tanker malfunction, etc.), credit the DDS on completing the last required maneuver. If the wingman aborts, the two-ship requirement may be satisfied providing the remaining aircraft practices lead procedures. The airland mission qualification flight evaluation may be credited as a direct delivery sortie. Both pilots may credit the DDS concurrently.

M065 Night Tactical Sortie. Logged in conjunction with a night DDS or TPS.

M070 Air Drop Sortie:

Pilots and navigators may credit an AD event if no-drop is made and the cause of the no-drop is not pilot or navigator induced. They may also substitute training bundles for personnel or heavy equipment drops. All drops will be credited under the following criteria:
A circular error (CE) or adjusted CE will not exceed 300 yards or 270 meters for heavy equipment and personnel, and 225 yards or 203 meters for CDS. The following adjustments will be made:
For each 100 feet above the minimum drop altitudes specified for the type of load being dropped, add 20 yards or 18 meters to the allowable CE.
VFR wingmen will score drops in relation to an adjusted point of impact (PI), 50 yards or 45 meters right of the lead's drop for right wingmen, 50 yards or 45 meters left of the lead's drop for left wingmen and abeam the PI.
For night VFR ADs, add 50 yards or 45 meters to the allowable CE.
50 percent of all semiannual SKE events must be accomplished at night or IMC. SKE wingmen will score their drops in relation to lead's drop or an adjusted PI when the drift correction setting for 2 degrees or less is set in the SKE secondary control panel.
