Training circular (TC) 3-04.33 standardizes aircrew training programs and flight evaluation procedures. This aircrew training manual (ATM) provides specific guidelines for executing H-60 aircrew training. It is based on the battle-focused training principles. It establishes crewmember qualification, refresher, mission, and continuation training and evaluation requirements. This manual applies to all H-60 series crewmembers and their commanders.
This is not a stand-alone document. All the requirements of Army regulations (ARs) and TC 3-04.11 must be met. Implementing this manual conforms to AR 95-1 and TC 3-04.11.
This manual, in conjunction with the ARs and TC 3-04.11, 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 their units’ 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 that crewmembers know the level of performance expected. Each task has a description that describes how it should be done to meet the standard. Standardization officers, evaluators, and unit trainers will use this manual and TC 3-04.11 as the primary tools to assist the commander in developing and implementing the aircrew training program. This publication applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard (ARNG)/Army National Guard of the United States, and the United States Army Reserve (USAR) unless otherwise stated
