  1. Standards versus Descriptions. Aviators and trainers/evaluators are reminded that task descriptions may contain required elements for successful completion of a given task. For example, when a standard for the task is to “Perform crew coordination actions per the task description”, those crew actions specified in the description are required. Attention to the use of the words, will, should, or may throughout the text of a task description is crucial.

  2. Task Considerations. References to IP in the task conditions include SP. When an UT, IP, or IE is cited as a condition, that individual will be at one set of the flight controls.

    1. A reference to the IP in the task conditions includes the SP.

  3. Critical Tasks. The following numbered tasks are OH-58D aviator critical tasks, selected by the USAAVNC task/site selection board with input from OH-58D Subject Matter Experts (SME).

  1. 1000

  1. CONDITIONS: Before flight in an OH-58D and given DA Form 5484-R (Aircrew Mission Briefing) and a unit-approved crew briefing check­list.

  2. STANDARDS: Appropriate common standards plus the following:

    1. The PC will actively participate in and acknowledge an understanding of DA Form 5484-R mission briefing. He will conduct or supervise a crew briefing using a unit-approved crew briefing checklist.

    2. The crewmember receiving the crew/mission brief will verbally acknowledge a complete under­standing of the crew/mission briefing.

    1. Crew actions.

          1. A designated briefing officer will brief key areas of the mission to the PC in accordance with AR 95-1. The PC will acknowledge a complete understanding of the mission brief and initial DA Form 5484-R. He has overall responsibility for the crew mission briefing.

          2. The crewmember being briefed will address any questions to the briefer and will acknowledge that he understands the assigned actions, duties, and responsibilities. Lessons learned from previous debriefings should be addressed as applicable during the crew briefing.

  1. An inherent element of the mission briefing is establishing the time and location for the crew-level after action review. (See Task 1262)

    1. Procedures. The PC and or crew will receive the mission briefing (DA Form 5484-R) from a designated briefing officer. The PC will ensure that a crew briefing is completed prior to the mission/flight. Figure 4-1 shows a suggested format for a crew briefing checklist. Identify mission and flight requirements that will demand effective communication and proper sequencing and timing of actions by the crewmembers.

    1. Training. Training will be conducted academically.

    2. Evaluation. Evaluation will be conducted academically.
  2. REFERENCES: Appropriate common references plus FM 1-300.
