Airman Classroom Training CourseByFormer Naval
AviatorJay Rollins
2
Objective
  • To provide all Sea Cadets with a broad overview
    of Naval Aviation (Lesson One), and further, to
    provide classroom instruction for cadets desiring
    to earn the Airman rating (E-3).
  • The Airman course includes classroom
    presentations as well as field excursions, to be
    announced.

3
Special Notes
  • Cadets are encouraged to take notes at each
    classroom presentation. Sea Cadets interested in
    qualifying as an NSCC Airman (E-3) are expected
    to progress through Airman Cadet qualifying test
    questions, located in the Navys Airman Manual
    posted at
  • http//compass.seacadets.org/cadets/nscc_courses/a
    irman.htm.

LESSON ONE
  • Introduction to Naval Aviation
  • (200 hrs)
  • Mission, History, and Organization
  • (0 55 mins)

5
Introduction
  • By marrying air power with naval forces, the USA
    is able to project military power virtually
    anywhere in the world.
  • The ability to win WWII, to fight the Korean War,
    Viet Nam, and two Gulf Wars directly accomplished
    with the sea power in combination with air power.

6
  • The Airman Rating prepares you to maintain the
    Navys vast fleet of aircraft.
  • Leadership and training are a part of your
    everyday life in the Navy, and teamwork is the
    most important attribute of any military
    organization.

7
  • Aircraft Nomenclature or aircraft naming
    convention reveals the aircrafts purpose and
    model series. The first letter describes the
    purpose

  • The letter is followed by a hyphen, a number for
    each model, and finally a letter to identify
    which design modification. As an example, I flew
    the TA-4J, which describes training attack
    aircraft 4 in a J design. Aircraft are also
    assigned a nickname. For the A-4, it is the
    Skyhawk.

  • Naval Air Stations (and smaller Naval Air
    Facilities) support the fleet by
  •          Providing support to aircraft and
    squadrons assigned to the base
  •          Services transient aircraft with fuel,
    oil, and minor repair.
  •          Operates control tower and overall
    operation of airport.
  • In addition, many NASs perform specialized
    missions such as training, major medical, AIMD,
    and NAVDEPS.

54
  • Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Bases (AIMD)
    Perform intermediate level maintenance. Divided
    into operational divisions
  • Maintenance Material Control The heart of AIMD.
  • Production Control manages resources to manage
    resources parts and personnel.

55
  • Material Control ensures parts or materiel kept
    available to various work centers.
  • Power plants, Airframes, Avionics Departments,
    etc. maintain respective aircraft components.
  • Quality Assurance (QA) Back-checks quality of
    all work performed in order to prevent defects.

56
  • NAVDEP (Naval Aviation Depot) Performs heavy
    maintenance. Manufactures parts and assemblies
    as necessary, as well as engineering necessary to
    make necessary changes to aircraft hardware.

There are four types of squadrons
  •          Carrier
  •          Patrol
  •          Composite
  •          Non-combatant

67
  • Carrier Squadrons
  • The online study guide states there are five
    types of carrier squadrons (page 2.7)
  • 1.       Strike-fighter (VFA)
  • 2.       Anti-Submarine (HS, HSL, VS)
  • 3.       Early Warning (VAW)
  • 4.       Fighter (VF)
  • 5.       Attack (VA)

68
  • However, due to recent fleet refinements, this
    information is OBSOLETE!
  • 1.       Strike-fighter (VFA)
  • 2.       Anti-Submarine (HS, HSL, VS)
  • 3.       Early Warning (VAW)
  • 4.       Fighter (VF)
  • 5.       Attack (VA)
  • Todays carrier squadrons are only one of the
    first three listed
  • 1.       VFA Fighter / Attack (F/A-18 Hornets)
  • 2.       HS or HSL only (SH-60 Seahawk Mk III)
  • 3.       VAW (EA-6 Prowler)

69
  • Patrol Squadrons (P-3 Orion) Operate from land
    bases, singly over land and sea for
    anti-submarine warfare, reconnaissance, and
    mining operations.

70
  • Composite (Utility) Squadrons Either fixed-wing
    or rotary, (VC) (HC), support fleet in multiple
    roles, including SAR and MEDIVAC operations.
    (SH-3 Sea King, H-46 Sea Knight

  • Non-Combatant Squadrons
  • Developmental (VX) (HX) Fixed wing and
    helicopter test squadrons
  • Tactical Support (VRC) Long distance
    transportation for supplies and personnel (C-130
    Hercules, C-9 Skytrain, C-2 Greyhound COD)
