NAVAL AIRCRAFT FLIGHT RECORD
One important way to measure naval aviation
performance is by the use of flight data. Of all the ways
to measure aviation activity, flight operation is directly
proportional to the measure of supply support.
Therefore, flight data is a basis for naval aviations
plans to adequately supply operating units.
Naval aircraft flight records (NAVFLIRs) are the
sole source documents that are prescribed to collect
flight data. The Naval Air Training and Operating
Procedures Standardization (NATOPS) General Flight
and Operating Instructions, OPNAVINST 3710.7,
outlines procedures for documenting the NAVFLIR.
The NAVFLIR (fig. 4-10) must be prepared for each
attempt at flight of naval aircraft. No substitute forms
are authorized. The NAVFLIR is used to collect the
following types of data:
A statistical description of the flight pertaining
to the aircraft and crewmembers
A record of all logistic actions that are
performed during the flight
A record of weapons proficiency
A record of training areas that are used and other
Documentation of the Naval Aircraft Flight
The Flight Add/Update Menu enables you to select
options to initiate, update, and complete NAVFLIR
documentation. The flight hours that are annotated on a
NAVFLIR directly affect the Maintenance subsystem
and Logs and Records subsystem. The form should be
prepared for each attempt at flight of naval aircraft or
training evolutions for simulators.
The pilot or designated crew member maintains an
accurate record of the flight. At the completion of the
flight or simulator event, the pilot or mission
commander signs the NAVFLIR to certify the
NAVFLIR that is accurate. If the aircraft and crew
member are assigned to different activities and are
supported by different data services facilities (DSFs),
the crew member provides his or her parent activity
with a duplicate copy of the NAVFLIR for submission
to the supporting DSF of the parent activity.
One record may be used for two or more flights
under the following conditions:
The total mission requirement (TMR) codes do
not exceed three, and the pilot in command
remains the same. (TMR codes are contained in
an appendix of OPNAVINST 3710.7.)
The operations (OPS) code (shipboard or shore
operations) remains the same.
No maintenance or servicing is performed at
intermediate stops other than the addition of
fuel, oil, or oxygen.
The upper left corner of the NAVFLIR contains a
preprinted alphanumeric number that identifies each
document. This number is required for computer
processing. A document with this number missing or
unreadable will be rejected by the DSF.
The upper right corner of the NAVFLIR has a
section that is marked PAGE _of_, and this section is
Figure 4-10.Naval aircraft flight record (NAVFLIR).
