This course is a “walk on” level Course of  instruction with flat range weapons handling and live fire evolutions  (both ground and airborne) as well as basic aircraft (helicopter)  familiarization and ground school training administered by ATTS for new  “aircrew members” prior to ATE training missions. The newly trained  aircrew members /ATE participants will, under the direct supervision of  helicopter crew chiefs, pre-flight and conduct airborne ATE operations  with multiple actual “live fire” aerial target engagement iterations  over a variety of ground target courses.

There is a weight limit of 250lb per person without gear for aircraft weight and balance requirements.

This is a 3-phase course:

Phase 1; will include range safety and admin procedure along with flat range live fire assessment and evolutions. Safe weapons handling and understanding of the 4 rules of firearms safety are the only pre-requisites that must be met.

Phase 2; will be dedicated to the ground school portion where students will become familiar with the basics of the aircraft (helicopter) SAFTY, and learn how to Efficiently & Safely function in and around the aircraft with weapons. Multiple dry rehearsals will be performed with a static helicopter on the range.

Phase 3; will begin the aerial portion where multiple iterations / missions will be flown with the newly trained aircrew members / course participants accompanied by a (1 on 1) Greenline Firearms Instructor / Aircrew member.  Airborne Target Engagement will be accomplished from multiple phases of flight, including but not limited to; forward flight, hover and orbits over the aerial gunnery range. Aircrews / Shooters will be trained to positively identify ground targets and engage them as required/directed in accordance with GT-ATET SOPs
