Targets: Sevastopol Area
Tactically, a FENCE check is typically performed when entering or exiting a hostile area. It ensures aircraft systems are set for combat. To instill an easily transferable habit pattern, during T-6 training, a FENCE check is performed when entering the military operations area (MOA) (FENCE-in) and again when leaving the MOA (FENCE-out). In the T-6 FENCE stands for:
F - Fuel (balance and quantity).
E - Engine (within limits).
N - NAVAIDs (GPS/EHSI set); N - NACWS (check range setting and clear the airspace).
C - Communication (frequencies set, radio call according to local directives). Checks complete (climb, ops, pre-stall, spin, aerobatic, descent).
E - Equipment (G-suit test as required, loose items stowed). Emergency airfield options reviewed.
