Figure 11-14 -- Helicopter Night Case I Recovery Pattern.
Case II Helicopter Controlled Descent/Visual Approach
During Case II helicopter approaches, AATCC are required to use close (positive)
control until the flight leader/pilot reports the ship in sight. AATCC must be fully manned
and ready to assume a Case III recovery should the weather deteriorate below Case II
Case II approaches must not be flown when Case III
departures are in progress. Case III approaches must be
used during marginal VMC.
