- Maintain vertical separation by initiating a climb to a briefed altitude.
- Immediate Altitude separation is a quick and efficient way to prevent an accident.
- Relocate the flight by scanning an altitude as close to flight altitude as possible.
- When you get eyes back on the flight, advise flight lead and await order to rejoin.
- Unit SOPs may state the procedures for reestablishing contact with the flight.
- Rally to an inflight link-up
- Rallying to a known point
- Air Check Point ACP along the route
- Position sent by lead
- Terrain feature.
- Use of covert/overt lighting
- Ground rally.
- If Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC) are encountered,
- execute IIMC_breakup as briefed.
