  • General Instructions(Chapter I)

    Grading process Established scale to document performance on maneuvers

    Scale compares performance to the course training standards (CTS)

    Grading Scale Demonstrated NG / 1

    IP demonstrates the maneuver

    Used for solo flights where an IP cannot observe maneuvers

    Indicated grade for accomplishment of Special Syllabus Requirements (SSR)

    Unable U / 2 Performance is unsafe or lacks sufficient knowledge, skill, or ability

    Deviations greatly exceed CTS & corrections are extremely slow

    Requires constant IP coaching to accomplish skill or maneuver

    Fair F / 3 Performance is safe but with limited proficiency

    Deviations exceed CTS & corrections still lag and may not be appropriate

    Still requires moderate coaching

  • General Instructions(Chapter I)

    Grading Scale (cont)

    Good G / 4

    Performance is within CTS

    Deviations outside of CTS may occur if they are brief, minor, & do not affect safety

    Corrections must be appropriate and timely

    Excellent E / 5

    Performance greatly surpasses CTS

    Performance is correct, efficient, and skillful

    Any deviations are minor & corrections are rapid but smooth & appropriate

  • General Instructions(Chapter I)

    Maneuver Item File (MIF)

    The required grade for a specific maneuver that must be obtained by EOB

    Every stage has all blocks & maneuvers spelled out in Curriculum Guide

    Example: For In-flight Checks/Fuel Management, the syllabus requires you to get a grade of U/2 thru the end of the C3102 simulator block. By the end of the C4104 block (4 aircraft events), the syllabus now requires you to get a grade of F/3

    Syllabus looks for progression of skills with more training

    Critical Items (Mandatory)

    Displayed with a + next to the required grade

    Mandatory to meet the required proficiency by EOB

    Optional Items

    No + with required grade

    If maneuver is accomplished, must meet indicated proficiency level

  • General Instructions(Chapter I)

    Grades and TIMS gradebook

    Each event will have a grade sheet filled out

    Grades are stored in your TIMS gradebook (electronically)

    Each grade sheet has the maneuvers, MIF, and awarded grade

    Example: On this event, General Knowledge/Procedures requires a grade of F/3+ by the EOB. The + makes this maneuver/grade mandatory. The student was awarded a G/4 for their performance as measured against CTS

  • General Instructions(Chapter I)

    Overall Grade

    Represent the students progression through JPPT

    Based on performance against the MIF

    Overall Grades

    Pass Progress is adequate to meet standards by end of block (EOB)

    Marginal Ability to meet standards by EOB is questionable

    Unsatisfactory Student exhibits dangerous tendencies or progress towards meeting standards by EOB is insufficient

    Awarding Overall Grades

    Must meet MIF by EOB

    Prior to EOB, performance must meet/exceed previous block MIF

    Must not regress in grades from block to block (Regression Rule)

    May get an F/3 on two maneuvers where a previous block required a G/4

    If more than two maneuvers awarded F/3 when previous block required a G/4 = Unsatisfactory Overall

    If performance on a maneuver for two consecutive events is an F/3 when a G/4 is required in previous block = Unsatisfactory Overall

    If any maneuver is awarded a U/2 after required grade is F/3 or G/4 in previous block = Unsatisfactory Overall

  • General Instructions(Chapter I)

    Unsatisfactory Performance

    Ready Room Unsat (RRU)

    Student performance at the briefing is unsatisfactory

    The flying portion of the event shall not occur

    Result in going directly to an Initial Progress Check (IPC)

    On an event

    If events remain in the block, student continues to the next event until the 2nd consecutive unsat or 3rd cumulative unsat in the block

    If no events remain in the block, student repeats last block event until the 2nd consecutive unsat or 3rd cumulative unsat in the block

    If student unsats a check ride, has two consecutive unsats in a row, or three cumulative unsats in a block = IPC

    If student unsats a subsequent check ride, has two further consecutive unsats in a row, or three cumulative unsats in a block = FPC

  • General Instructions(Chapter I)

    Warmup events (86 events)

    Used for breaks in training

    Eligibility based on the # of days since last flight or sim in the same stage

    Coded with phase, block & 86 (example: C4286)

    Warmup grades do not satisfy block required grades to progress in that block

    When events awarded? See table

  • General Instructions(Chapter I)

    Special Monitoring Status (SMS)

    Students placed in SMS to focus supervisory attention on their progress in training, specific deficiencies, and potential to complete the program

    May also relate to students resolving personal issues

    Intended as a short term program (set goals for removal)

    If student achieves required goals or personal issues resolved, student returns to normal training flow

    If student fails to achieve required goals or performance does not improve, student goes to an IPC or FPC

  • General Instructions(Chapter I)

    Progress Checks Used to evaluate the students potential to complete JPPT and advanced training

    Students first progress check is an Initial Progress Check (IPC) and labeled as Sxx88

    Students second progress check is a Final Progress Check (FPC) and labeled as Sxx89

    Triggers for an IPC: First RRU

    Second academic test failure

    Failed check ride

    Two consecutive or three cumulative unsat events in the same block

    Results of an IPC: Pass and return to normal syllabus flow

    Fail and move to an FPC

    Triggers for an FPC Following a failed IPC

    Conditions for an IPC exist but the student has already been to an IPC

    CO directed when the potential to complete JPPT and advanced training is in doubt

    Results of an FPC: Pass and return to normal syllabus flow

    Fail and move to attrition recommendation by CO

  • Course Training Standards (CTS)(Chapter IX)


    Outline the tasks and proficiency required for each maneuver

    Standards equates to a G/4

    Aircraft control must be smooth and positive. Performance may be within CTS and still not warrant a grade of good if inputs are delayed, erratic, imprecise or inappropriate

    Momentary deviations outside CTS that do not compromise safety are acceptable if corrections are timely


  • Ground Training(Chapter II)

    Covers all of the initial training to be accomplished prior to flight line ops

    Goes through and defines:

    Gxxxx Ground event CAI and classes

    SYxxxx Systems CAI and classes

    PRxxxx Procedures CAI and classes

    Lists prerequisites - items that must be accomplished prior to moving on

  • Stage Training Sections(Chapters IV-VIII)

    Different stage chapters (Contact, Instrument, etc.)

    Each stage chapter starts with overall MIF grid

    Gives overall snapshot of stage

    Shows expectations of skill set proficiency advancement for each maneuver

    Shows all the various training blocks in the stage

    Breaks out simulator, aircraft, and check flight events

    After MIF grid, stage chapter will break out each individual training block

  • Stage Training Sections(Chapters IV-VIII)

    Breakouts for each block of training (i.e. C21xx, C41xx block, etc.)

    Does not get very specific to each individual event in the block

    List prerequisites that must be accomplished prior to beginning the block

    Lists syllabus notes as to what will be accomplished on various block events if any required

    Lists Special Syllabus Requirements (SSRs) that need to be accomplished if any required

    Lists discussion items by event in block

  • Stage Training Sections(Chapters IV-VIII)

    Each block section breaks out all the graded maneuvers and required MIF by EOB

    Grades for a block are always expectations by EOBnot per event
