      3. Phase 3 – Flight evaluation. If this phase is required, the following procedures apply.

        1. Briefing. The evaluator will explain the flight evaluation procedure and brief the examinee on which tasks he will be evaluated. When evaluating an evaluator/trainer or a unit trainer, the evaluator must advise the examinee that, during role-reversal, he may deliberately perform some tasks outside standards to check the examinee’s diagnostic and corrective action skills. The evaluator will conduct or have the examinee conduct a crew briefing using a unit approved crew briefing checklist.

        2. Preflight inspection and engine-start, hover and run-up procedures. The evaluator will evaluate the examinee’s use of TMs 55-1520-248-10/CL/MTF as appropriate. The evaluator will have the examinee properly identify and discuss the function of at least two aircraft components.

        3. Flight tasks. As a minimum, the evaluator will evaluate those tasks listed on the CTL as mandatory for the designated crew station(s), for the type of evaluation he is conducting and those mission or additional tasks designated by the commander. The evaluator, in addition to the commander selected tasks, may randomly select for evaluation any tasks listed on the mission or additional task list. An IP, SP, ME or IE must demonstrate an ability to instruct and evaluate appropriate flight tasks. An UT must demonstrate an ability to instruct those tasks in which he will conduct training. When used as part of the proficiency flight evaluation, the evaluation may include an orientation of the local area, checkpoints and other pertinent information.

        4. Engine shutdown and after-landing tasks. The evaluator will evaluate the examinee’s use of TM 55-1520-248-CL/MTF.

      4. Phase 4 – Debriefing. Upon completion of the evaluation –

        1. The evaluator will conduct, or have the examinee conduct, a crew-level after-action review using an approved crew level checklist.

        2. Use DA Forms 4507-R, 4507-1-R, 4507-2-R, if required and 7122-R, if applicable to critique the examinee’s performance.

        3. Tell the examinee whether he passed or failed the evaluation and discuss any tasks not performed to standards.

  1. Inform the examinee of any restriction, limitations or revocations the evaluator will recommend to the commander following an unsatisfactory evaluation.
        1. Discuss the examinee’s strengths and weaknesses.

        2. Offer recommendations for improvement.

        3. Complete the applicable forms and ensure that the examinee reviews and initials the appropriate forms.

  1. A training plan will be developed for the crewmember to allow him to regain proficiency in tasks which were evaluated as untrained.
