I thought they might schedule something since your flight had been cancelled.
Is tomorrow just an open day for you to study now ?
Most of the time it is. We have to be in our flight room when other people briefing for flight just in case they can't go for some reason.
Today I have spotter duty. Basically it involves counting how many landings / touch-n-goes runway gets and making sure gear is extended and locked when planes land. I'm going to be sitting with binoculars and a 'clicker' for 3-4 hours just watching planes land.
No AAR. Due to poor weather, I didn't get to fly solo. Instead I had a dual ride with introduction to tactical formation. Basically it is formation with idea of a mutual support to both airplanes. Think of two airplanes keeping each other at 3 / 9 oclock formation 2,000 feet away. There are no aerobatic maneuvers, just turns and such. I'm surprised that I don't see such formation with folks flying sims online.
Since 3/9 is much harder to keep, I usually fly high, behind and off axis to my Flight Leader in sims. It's interesting to note that as far as I understand, in WW2 and some times afterwards there was still the idea that the flight lead will do the killing, the wingman will do the protection.
Obviously today the idea is that both pilots in a pair are in position to do both jobs. How do you actually judge 2000 feet, btw?
It's not hard to keep 3/9 leader. 2 most of the time flies slightly higher than 1 so when maneuvering required, it will not cause collision since 2 is at least 200 feet higher. 2000 feet is easy since there is a visual reference on a wing. Our wing has a wingtip vortices strip that is same size as to what airplane would be at 2000 feet.
Right now we are learning to place 2 where we want thim. For example if he is on my left and I want to do 180 degress turn to the right, I'll do a large wing flash to right. Then I'll start turning to right while keeping same speed, Gs and altitude while at max power. If you want to learn more, you can google AFI that read about it....it's public.
