Purpose: The aircrew training manual (ATM) standardizes aircrew training programs and flight evaluation procedures. This manual provides specific guidelines for executing AH-64D aircrew training. It is based on the battle-focused training principles outlined in FM 7-1. It establishes crewmember qualification, refresher, mission, continuation training, and evaluation requirements. This manual applies to all AH-64D crewmembers and their commanders. This is not a stand-alone document. All of the requirements of AR 600-105, AR 600-106, NGR 95-210, and TC 1-210 must be met. Implementation of this manual conforms to AR 95-1 and TC 1-210. If differences exist between the maneuver descriptions in TM 1-1520-251-10 and this manual, this manual is the governing authority for training and flight evaluation purposes. This manual (in conjunction with the ARs and TC 1-210) will help aviation commanders at all levels to 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. 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 a technique that may be performed to safely meet the standard. 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 his aircrew training program. This manual applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard (ARNG)/Army National Guard of the United States (ARNGUS), and the U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) unless otherwise stated. The proponent of this publication is United States Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC).
