Purpose: The aircrew training manual (ATM) standardizes aircrew training programs and flight evaluation procedures. This manual provides specific guidelines for executing C-12 aircrew training. It is based on the battle-focused training principles outlined in FM 7-1 and establishes crewmember qualification, and refresher, mission, and continuation training, and evaluation requirements. This manual applies to all Active Army, Army National Guard (ARNG)/the Army National Guard of the United States (ARNGUS), and U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) C-12 crewmembers and their commanders. This manual is not a stand-alone document. All requirements contained in Army regulations (ARs) and TC 1-210 must be met. This manual is the governing authority for training and flight evaluation purposes only. If differences exist between the maneuver descriptions in the operator manuals and this manual, the operator manuals are the authority for operating the aircraft. Implementation of this manual conforms to AR 95-1 and TC 1-210. This manual (in conjunction with the Army regulations and TC 1-210) will help aviation commanders at all levels develop a comprehensive aircrew training program. By using this ATM, commanders ensure that individual crewmember and aircrew proficiency is commensurate with the unit mission and that aircrews routinely employ standard techniques and procedures. Standardization officers, evaluators, and unit trainers will use this manual and TC 1-210 as the primary tools to assist the commander to develop and implement the aircrew training program. Crewmembers will use this manual as a “how to” source for performing crewmember duties. It provides performance standards and evaluation guidelines so crewmembers know the level of performance expected. Each task has a description of how it should be done to meet the standard.
