B Coy Officers, Pilots & Noobs and everyone from the 229th AHB

Hey I’m keen but realising that everyone has RL issues to deal with not to mention family obligations, so how does the Company move forward.

Not wishing to step on the toes of the new Officers but I was bored this morning and gave this a little thought - here’s a few ideas to mull over.... If you wish.... Take what you want, if any....

Consider establishing maybe 3 formal regular company sessions... Perhaps...

------------------------------------------------
Individual Flight Qualification Training.
------------------------------------------------


It my mind, it would be good have a simplistic PDP (personal development plan) for each qualification in a given airframe for those who want to engage.

Break down each of the tasks required for a qualification.

Once a week schedule a formal time slot for personal task mentoring for those who want it.

Usual stuff, demonstrate, then practice and mentor each stage until the ticks are in the box - once all the ticks are complete, call in the assessors and get the qualification validated.  If no suitable qualified mentor available from B Coy on a scheduled night maybe a qualified pilot from A or C can stand in - arranged in advance.

Of course training / mentoring can be carried out at any time as well but a defined slot allows people to forward plan.

YOU NEED:
A CO-ORDINATOR
MENTORS / INSTRUCTORS
A PUBLISHED SCHEDULE
PDP

------------------------------------------------
Operational Training
------------------------------------------------


Once a week schedule a formal time slot for

Simplistic plug & Play Missions

Design a flexible multi mission training area with multiple areas of varying enemy activity intensity  

Create written briefings with sensible appropriate intelligence information.  

Universe Radio to be used.

Comms to be formal.  Recruit a live role player on an U. Ext Radio for realism if possible.

Total mission times to be relatively short, say 1 hour to 1.5 hours

Can be run as single ship, flights or multiple flights depending on the number of pilots who turn up.

Leadership skills will develop.

All flight should aim to encompass good airmanship as defined in SOP’s,

Each mission should aim to have an emphasis on honing a particular skill set, for example Navigation, Bad Weather, Night Time, Communications, Formation HOT landings, TO’s.... And of course hauling trash,

A de-brief session immediately after the mission to identify Coy / Flight / Pilot training needs

Of course these types of missions can be carried out at any time as well but a defined slot allows people to forward plan to attend and manage.

YOU NEED
A CO-ORDINATOR
A SCHEDULE
A LEAD FOR THE MISSION
A TRAINING AREA
A DEBRIEF

------------------------------------------------
Ad hoc FUN
------------------------------------------------

Introduce Fun time - after a mission or a training session perhaps, at random spontaneous times.

Informal man v man quick tasks, (often fast & stupid but non the less skill building) in a laid back competitive spirit, banter to be high, informal, you know the looser has to drink a glass of american beer as a penance stuff...  Encourage A,B, HHCC, D staff to duels, if they have the courage... (once we get a wee bit better..that is)

YOU NEED
A sense of humour, spontaneous creativity and a tadge of devilment or evil intent.

------------------------------------------------
B COY MISSIONS
-----------------------------------------------


A full mission involving all the company and possibly the battalion.

YOU NEED
EVERYONE


WHO’LL DO THE WORK ???

Personally, I’m a taker with regard to Flight Training but certainly can do a co-ordination role.

On the Operational Training I reckon I could pick the brains of SIX and HAWKEYE and a few others and come up with an suitable training area mission with flexible taskings and associated stuff such as Intel, Maps etc...  I’vbe read Chickenhawk that many times coupled with a good dose of heli deployments in another life I reckon I have enough ideas.... And if a feedback loop is kept in place from briefings - it should naturally evolve.

On the Ad HOC fun side, I’ll be the source of everyone s laughter...

On the Big Missions - out of my league. Completely.

-----------------------------------------------
IS IT COMPLICATED
-----------------------------------------------


No, keep it simple, everyones heard of the KISS bind it with SMART principles and its done, well sort of....

Just a few thought lads...... discard or use anything that might be good.

Wow Gizzy, very impressive. I absolutely love your way of thinking.

What we need for this to even more shine is multicrew cockpits, which are unfortunately still a thing for the future. When the instructor and pilot actually sit both in the same airframe it would be so much more realistic to give training. Until than we have to use what we currently have.

We should definitly work this out further.

Oh, and keep up cooking up more ideas, you are on a roll here Smile

Here is an idea I had, forgive me if we already have a steam group that I am unaware of but I created one in the hope that things will be easier to organise for impromtu sessions.

I like some of these ideas. I would also recommend we use the PM system & TS to develop some of these ideas instead of open posting. If bravo company leadership comes up with a training plain or a new way of training let me know and we can review it. As the Battalion standardization pilot I oversea the training of all the companies. I would also recommend we get some basic qualifications done on Bravo pilots so that we have a basic understanding of US army aviation and the 229th wings & training process.

Your offer is really appreciated, thank you...

Any view on point 6 above ? (just above the coffee stain)... in case there is a green flag from the OC & SIX...

Sounds like the ball is rolling Cool
I can offer navigation sessions as thats what I am most geeky in. Like my autorotations I may need to make sure my knowledge is suitable to pass on to others with a chat to the IP's. I am a purist though so kneeboard route marking is not allowed tongue

I've taken the bull by the horns so to speak, taking due cognisance of the old saying, "it's easier to get forgiveness than permission" and accordingly  I post this...

Of course it is, in the best ED tradition, subject to change, but perhaps it is a start.  If I can get my head around the PM system I'll try and PM perhaps absent B Coy members...

....again with the biggest of ....

and, again with the best of intentions....

So where do we want to go....  It'll be nice it a clatter of us grew into a cohesive highly skilled team and entered into the world of MP as a flight, company or dare I say it, the Battalion...

Anyway, awaiting chastisement, the naughty stool is ready...

Great work Gizzy. I was thinking of this earlier and all I would add is that one of the training days is themed each week. For instance a thursday is set aside for predetermined subject IE navigation one week followed by another subject the following week. That allows the student pilots to study before the training and the IP to prepare his notes or whatever prior to the training. If that makes sense. And well done for taking the initiative I love you

I understand and a good idea.

There are several pathways to consider dependent on take up and current skill level.... it may be 1,2 or 10 who knows.

As well as the 3 x WINGS certifications there are the many facets of helicopter operations as defined in 229th SOP's, and then you have the KA50, Mi8 (and later Gazelle) varients each with a separate speciality.

If a group of pilots with broadly similar skills regularly attend then the concept of 'announced themes' comes into it own.

Incidentally. I PM'ed all of B Company in the address book, if it worked that is and not threw a hissy fit!
