AR 95-1 establishes procedures, policy and responsibilities for crewmember training and standardization requirements, management of aviation resources and the ATP. Individual crewmembers, crews and units are trained to proficiency via passage through a series of “training gates” which are determined by the training analysis process as outlined in FM 25-101. A major challenge and decision is the determination of the readiness level attainable and sustainable with available resources. ATP execution follows the crawl, walk, run process.
      1. RL 1(T). A crewmember fully qualified and proficient in all of the units’ METL tasks. RL 1(T) crewmembers are in collective, crew and individual proficiency sustainment training.

      2. RL 1 (P). A crewmember fully qualified and proficient in all ATP required individual and crew tasks. RL 1(P) crewmembers are sustaining individual and crew proficiency while under going collective task training. The training focus is on unit METL tasks. A crewmember must progress to RL 1(T) within 180 calendar days of initial RL 2 designation.

      3. RL 2. A crewmember fully qualified and proficient in all individual tasks. An RL 2 crewmember is undergoing training as a crewmember in those crew (2000 series and 3000 series commander developed) aircraft and battle tasks that will enable him to fight the aircraft as a member of an aircrew. Crew coordination training is extremely important during this phase of training. RL 2 crewmembers are responsible for sustaining individual proficiency. A crewmember must progress to RL 1(P) within 90 calendar days of initial RL 2 designation.

      4. RL 3. A crewmember undergoing individual (1000 series) task or qualification training. A crewmember must progress to RL 2 within 90 calendar days of initial RL 3 designation.


Crewmember qualification requirements are done per AR 95-1, TC 1-200 and this ATM. Crewmembers are designated RL 3 while undergoing OH-58D qualification. They complete qualification training by demonstrating proficiency in all tasks required for the qualification to a SP, IP or IE as appropriate. Crewmembers undergoing qualification training in the aircraft must fly with an IP or SP.
      1. Aircraft Qualification. Initial qualification training will be conducted at the U.S. Army Aviation Center, or a DA-approved training site according to a USAAVNC- approved Program Of Instruction (POI).

      2. NVG Qualification. Initial NVG qualification in the OH-58D is conducted concurrently with aircraft qualification.

      3. OH-58D(R) Series Qualification. A crew member qualified in the OH-58D(I), but not qualified in the OH-58D(R) will receive the following training before performing crew duties in the OH-58D(R)

        1. Cockpit System Trainer (CST) – Academic instruction as outlined in Figure 2-1, OH-58D(R) Qualification CST Subjects.

        2. Hot Cockpit Training – 4.5 hours minimum and demonstrated knowledge of the subjects required by Figure 2-2, OH-58D(R) Qualification Hot Cockpit Subjects.

        3. Flight Instruction – A minimum of 6.0 hours in the OH-58D(R), of which at least 1.0 hours must be flown with NVGs. Crew members will demonstrate proficiency in the tasks listed in figure 2-3, OH-58D(R) Qualification Flight Tasks.

      4. OH-58D(I) Series Qualification. A crew member qualified in the OH-58D(R), but not qualified in the OH-58D(I) will receive training, and demonstrate proficiency in all tasks that are different in the OH-58D(I).
