    1. PERFORM BEFORE STARTING ENGINE THROUGH BEFORE LEAVING HELICOPTER CHECKS
  1. CONDITIONS: In an OH-58D helicopter.

  2. STANDARDS: Appropriate common standards plus the following.


    1. Perform procedures and checks IAW TMs 55-1520-248-10/CL.

    2. Enter appropriate information on DA Forms 2408‑12 and 2408‑13/13-1.

    3. Complete post-flight inspection and secure the aircraft.
  3. DESCRIPTION:


    1. Crew actions.

          1. Both crewmembers will complete the required checks pertaining to his assigned crew duties using TMs 55-1520-248-CL. They/he will clear the area around the aircraft before starting engine.

          2. The P* will announce when starting engine.

          3. Enter appropriate information on DA Forms 2408-12 and 2408-13/13-1.

          4. PC ensures aircraft is secure before departing.

    2. Procedures.

          1. Perform the BEFORE STARTING ENGINE CHECKS through BEFORE LEAVING HELICOPTER CHECKS per TM 55-1520-248-CL. Crewmembers will use the checklist to complete checks and procedures appropriate to their crew station. Crewmembers will announce any check that involves an action by the opposite crewmember. The opposite station crewmember will reply with an answer that conveys his understanding of the check and his status in relation to that specific check. Responses that do not clearly communicate action completion or system status should not be used.

  1. For single pilot operations, the PC will complete all the above tasks
  1. NIGHT OR NVG CONSIDERATIONS: Before starting the engine, ensure that all internal and external lights are set. Internal lighting levels must be high enough to easily see the instruments and to start the engines without exceeding operating limitations.

  2. SNOW/SAND/DUST CONSIDERATIONS: Ensure all rotating components and inlets/exhausts are clear of ice and/or snow prior to starting engine.

  3. TRAINING AND EVALUATION REQUIREMENTS:


    1. Training. Training may be conducted in the aircraft or CPT.

    2. Evaluation. Evaluation will be conducted in the aircraft.
  4. REFERENCES: Appropriate common references.

    1. MAINTAIN AIRSPACE SURVEILLANCE.
  1. CONDITIONS: In an OH-58D helicopter.

  2. STANDARDS: Appropriate common standards plus the following:


    1. Brief airspace surveillance procedures prior to flight.

    2. Announce drift or altitude changes.

    3. Alert wingman, team, section, and unit to all sightings of other aircraft, obstacles, or unknowns that may pose, a threat.

    4. Announce when attention will be focused inside the aircraft for more than 3-4 seconds.
  3. DESCRIPTION:


    1. Crew actions.

          1. The PC will brief airspace surveillance procedures prior to the flight. The briefing will include areas of responsibility for each crewmember.

          2. The P* will announce his intent to perform a specific maneuver and will remain focused outside the aircraft. He is responsible for clearing the aircraft and obstacle avoidance.

          3. As duties permit the P will assist in clearing the aircraft and will provide adequate warning of obstacles, unusual drift, or altitude changes. He will announce when his attention is focused inside the cockpit.

    2. Procedures.

          1. Maintain close surveillance of the surrounding airspace. Keep the aircraft clear from other aircraft and obstacles by maintaining visual surveillance of the sur­rounding airspace. Inform the opposite crewmember and other aircraft of any air traffic or obsta­cles that pose, or may pose, a threat. Call out the location of traffic or obstacles by the clock position, altitude, and dis­tance method. When reporting air traffic, specify the type of aircraft (fixed-wing or helicopter), direction of travel; for example, left to right, right to left, climb, or descent. The altitude of the air traffic should be reported as the same, higher, or lower than the altitude at which you are flying.

          2. Prior to changing altitude, visually clear the aircraft for hazards and obstacles inclusive of what is ahead, above, and to the left and right of the aircraft. Hazards and obstacles will be noted by each crewmember and information shared. Prior to changing altitude, it may sometimes be desirable to perform a clearing “S” turn.
  4. NIGHT OR NVG CONSIDERATIONS: The use of proper scanning tech­niques will assist in detecting traffic, obsta­cles, and in avoid­ing spatial disorientation. Hazards such as wires are difficult to detect.

  5. SNOW/DUST/SAND CONSIDERATIONS: When operating in or anticipating blowing snow/sand/dust conditions, the P should carefully divide his attention between the flight instruments and outside references to assist the P* in aircraft control.

  6. TRAINING AND EVALUATION REQUIREMENTS:


    1. Training. Training will be conducted in the aircraft.

    2. Evaluation. Evaluation will be conducted in the aircraft.
  7. REFERENCES: Appropriate common references.
