manual are not intended to cover every contingency that may arise nor every
rule of safety and good practice. Pilots shall be indoctrinated in the
fundamentals of good airmanship and are expected to observe the general
prudential rules of flying. Pilots are to abide by FAA Regulations and
NATOPS General Flight and Operating Instructions, and shall exercise constant
vigilance while operating an aircraft within the NAS class D airspace.
Deviation from these regulations and procedures is authorized only when in
the opinion of the pilot such deviation is necessary for the safety of
aircraft and crew.

102. TRUAX FIELD. Truax Field was named in honor of LTJG Myron Truax on
August 6, 1986. A native Texan and World War II fighter ace with six
verified kills, LTJG Truax’s many decorations include two Navy Crosses and
the Distinguished Flying Cross for successfully accomplishing twenty combat
missions in the Pacific Theater that inflicted extensive damage to enemy
airfields and installations. LTJG Truax served from 1 January 1943 to 13
January 1946, he died in Fairfax Virginia on 23 November 1984.

111. SERVICE FACILITIES. Transient pilots can expect servicing delays due
to limited fueling and transient alert services. A large influx of transient
aircraft requires parking on taxiways where tie-down facilities do not exist.
Transient aircraft are required to obtain a PPR to land at the airfield.
Refer to the current publication of the DOD FLIP Enroute IFR–Supplement for
PPR requirements, availability of fuel, oil, oxygen, and other services.

112. AIRCRAFT PARKING FACILITIES. Transient parking areas are limited.
Small/Large aircraft may be parked on the South Line or Echo taxiway. Heavy
aircraft will be parked on runway 17/35, the approach end of runway 4 or in
the Red Label area (western end of Echo taxiway). Refer to the current
publication of the DOD FLIP Enroute IFR–Supplement for PPR requirements,
availability of fuel, oil, oxygen, and other services.

113.  LIGHTING FACILITIES.
      A. ROTATING BEACON. A green and dual peaked white rotating beacon is
located .5NM north-northeast from the geographical center of NGP on top of
Building 10. The beacon is operated from sunset to sunrise and during
daylight hours when the ceiling is less than 1,000 feet and/or the visibility
is less than three miles.

      B. RUNWAY LIGHTS. All runways are equipped with variable, HIRL.
Green threshold lights are located at the approach end of each runway. Runway
lighting will be operated IAW reference (c).

      C. APPROACH LIGHTS. Runway 13R is equipped with the approach lighting
system. The installation provides 1700 feet of approach lighting with the
first 700 feet of the sequenced flashing type. Approach lighting will be
operated IAW reference (c).

      D. WAVEOFF LIGHTS. Waveoff lights are installed on Runways 13L, 13R,
and 31R. The lights consist of three clusters of red lights located on both
sides of the runway near the touchdown zone. The waveoff lights can be
activated from the control tower or the Wheels Watch station.

      E. ARRESTING GEAR LIGHTING. Arresting gear site 1 is marked by two
lighted signs with yellow circles on a black background, located on each side
of the runway adjacent to each site.

      F. TAXIWAY LIGHTS. Blue taxiway lights are installed on all taxiways
except Taxiway Alpha between runway 13L and Taxiway Yankee. Taxiway lighting
will be operated IAW reference (c).

      G. OBSTRUCTION LIGHTS. All known obstructions near the airfield are
marked with steady red lights. Pilots must be alert for temporary oilrigs
erected near the airport. These temporary structures are not shown on DOD
FLIP Charts.

      H. FLOODLIGHTS. The use of floodlights by any airport user requires
prior permission from the ODO. Floodlights are available from the Flight
Support Division.

114. NORMAL HOURS OF OPERATION. The air station is a Category B Airfield
with hours of operation as listed in the current DOD FLIP Enroute IFR-
Supplement. Otherwise, check NOTAMS for modification to airfield hours due
to special events, safety stand-downs and other than federal holidays.

115. PPR. PPR requirements are listed in the current DOD FLIP En route IFR-
Supplement.

116. TEMPORARY AIRFIELD CLOSURE. The Air Operations Officer, or in his
absence the Operations Duty Officer (ODO), is authorized to temporarily close
the airport when hazards exist. The following are examples that would
dictate temporary closure of the airport:

      A.   Hazardous landing area.

      B.   Lack of sufficient emergency equipment and rescue facilities.

      C. During instrument weather conditions when navigational aid failure
precludes an aircraft from making a safe approach.

      D. During periods when severe and destructive weather conditions are
occurring or forecasted to occur within the airport proper, i.e., severe
thunderstorms, winds exceeding 50 knots, hail, etc.

      E. Closed field operations shall be conducted in accordance with
Letters of Agreement and local base instructions.

117. COMPASS ROSE. The Compass Rose is located on Taxiway Charlie between
Taxiways Echo and Alpha. Contact the ODO to schedule use of the Compass
Rose.

118. AVERAGE ANNUAL WEATHER DATA. The climate conditions vary between the
humid subtropical region to the northeast along the Texas coast and the semi-
mild region to the west and southwest.

      A. SPRING. Peak rainfall months are May and September. Tornadoes are
an infrequent occurrence in the area and hail occurs only about once a year.

      B. SUMMER. Hurricane season from June to November can greatly affect
rainfall totals. There is little change in the day-to-day weather of the
summer months except for an occasional rain shower or tropical storm in the
area. High temperatures range in the high 80’s to mid 90’s. Sea breeze

during the afternoon and evening hours moderates the summer heat. Low
temperatures are usually in the mid 70’s. Summer-time temperatures rarely
reach 100 degrees near the bay, but do in most other parts of the city. In
the summer season the region receives nearly 80% of the possible sunshine.
Chief hurricane months are August and September, although tropical storms
have occurred as early as June and as late as October. Severe tropical
storms occur on average about one in every ten years. Lesser strength storms
average about one in every five years. Corpus Christi has a bluff that rises
30 to 40 feet above the level of the lowland areas near the bay. This serves
as a natural barrier from high water. The majority of the storms pass either
to the south or east of the city.

      C. FALL. The fall months of September and October are essentially an
extension of the summer months. November is the transition to the conditions
of the coming winter months and greater temperature extremes, stronger winds,
and the first occurrences of north flow wind.

      D. WINTER. Winter months have the least amount of rainfall. Snow
falls on an average of about one day every two years. Winter months are
relatively mild, with temperatures below 32 degrees seldom occurring near the
bay, but are more frequent inland. January is the coldest month with a
prevailing northerly wind pattern. The most extreme cold weather in which

responsible for determining the maximum aircraft allowed in the VFR traffic
pattern and practice instrument approach pattern. Upon the determination
that the workload limit for the tower pattern has been reached, the Tower
Supervisor shall temporarily suspend practice approaches. Aircraft in the
pattern will be given the option of making a full stop landing or departing
the airfield.

405. IN-FLIGHT EMERGENCIES. Because of the infinite variety of possible
emergency situations, specific procedures cannot be prescribed. There is no
substitute for good judgment exercised by the pilot in an emergency
situation. The general procedures that follow shall be used when practical.
Emergencies are classified into two categories; Alerts and Crashes. Either
the pilot, the controller, or officials responsible for the operation of the
aircraft can declare an emergency. The category and definition, pilot
reporting procedures, control tower procedures, and the preplanned response
by ground personnel are listed in succeeding paragraphs.

      A. ALERT. An aircraft is experiencing difficulty which may range from
minor to major, such as, feathered engine, faulty landing gear, engine fire,
no hydraulic pressure, chip warning light, rough-running engine, hydraulic or
oil leak, fuel transfer problem, minor gear malfunctions, generator failure,
abnormal temperature, etc.

          (1) Pilot report. Upon declaring an in-flight emergency, the
pilot shall provide the following minimum required information to ATC; call
sign, type of aircraft, nature of emergency, and pilot’s intentions. Fuel
and number of persons on board may be reported in subsequent transmissions.

          (2) Control tower. Control tower personnel shall notify ground
stations via the crash phone of the nature of the emergency and pilot’s
intentions and take all possible action to render assistance to the emergency


                                     4-3

aircraft. The tower shall ensure air traffic on and around the airport does
not interfere with the recovery of the emergency aircraft.

          (3) Crash crew. Crash Crew shall proceed to assigned locations as
directed by Fire Department Command and Control. Once permission is given
“to chase”, the Command Vehicle assumes all authority for operations on the
runway. Return to normal Operations requires Command concurrence.

          (4) Operations Duty Officer. The Operations Duty Officer shall
keep a detailed running log of events and notify appropriate personnel via
call sheet. All questions concerning the alert should be directed to the
ODO.

      B. CRASH. An aircraft mishap has occurred or is imminent. An aircraft
mishap beyond the immediate vicinity of the Navy Corpus Christi airport (off
base) shall be specified by the control tower during the initial notification
process.

          (1) Pilot report. Pilots of aircraft in distress, or observing an
aircraft in distress, shall broadcast a “MAYDAY” message followed by
essential information. For mishaps beyond the immediate vicinity of Navy
Corpus Christi, the position of the aircraft in distress shall be reported,
including TACAN bearing and distance if available.

          (2) Control tower. Control tower personnel shall notify ground
stations via the crash phone and the FM radio. For on-station mishaps, the
airport shall be closed until reopened by the Operations Duty Officer.

          (3) Crash crew. For an on base mishap, the crash crew and
emergency response vehicles shall proceed immediately to the crash site. For
an off base mishap, response personnel shall assemble emergency equipment and
caravan to the crash site as soon as possible.

406. PLANNED EJECTION. When a pilot reports that he is planning to eject,
the Coast Guard shall be alerted and a rescue helicopter will be dispatched
to the ejection site. The Control Tower shall obtain assistance from Radar
to determine the exact radial and DME location to ejection site and aircraft
impact site. If a planned ejection becomes necessary while in the pattern at
NAS Corpus Christi, to the extent practical, the pilot will depart on an
easterly heading and ejection shall be accomplished over the western portion
of W228.

407. LOST AIRCRAFT PROCEDURES. Pilots in doubt of their location shall
initiate a call to any air traffic control facility and request assistance.

working hours, or the Operations Duty Officer, (361) 961-2505, (DSN 861-
2505), at other times.

409. PREVENTION OF WHEELS-UP LANDINGS. Training Air Wing Four squadrons
will post a “wheels watch” whenever local flying is in progress. The
Facility Watch Supervisor in coordination with the Operations Duty Officer
shall direct the posting and securing of the runway wheels watch. The wheels
watch shall be posted 990’ from the approach end of the runway. For night
operations, the wheels watch shall use the wheels up light bar, if available
or the light gun. The wheels watch will use wave off lights if available.

      A. PILOT REPORT. Pilots shall report wheels down and locked prior to
one mile straight-in or the 1800 position on downwind. An intentional
“wheels-up” low approach shall not be conducted without first notifying the
tower in a timely manner.

      B. CONTROL TOWER. Tower controllers shall closely observe     each
aircraft in the final stages of the landing phase and broadcast a   reminder to
“check wheels down” if such report has not already been received.   The Tower

                                       GENERAL

101. ENGINE START PROCEDURES. Aircraft will not commence engine start or
taxi within 50 ft of a refueling operation (defined as a fuel nozzle inside a
fuel tank). A fireguard must be posted prior to engine start(s).

102. TAXI AND RUN-UP. TW-4 aircraft shall remain 5 ft from the edge of all
taxiways during pre-taxi checks. T-34 aircraft shall not conduct pre-taxi
checks in front of any hangar, with the exception of night hot seats. Prior
to entering an active taxiway the pilot in command will establish radio
communication with Ground Control. Refer to individual unit SOP/FTI for
start and pre-taxi procedures. If the taxi director’s signals are not
clearly understood or the pilot disagrees with the signal, stop the aircraft.
The pilot in command is ultimately responsible for the safe movement of the
aircraft.

     A.   GENERAL.

             (1) Parking.   Area designations for TW-4 aircraft are depicted on
PLATE 1-2.

          (2) Right-of-Way. Generally, outbound aircraft will have the
right-of-way over inbound aircraft, ATC may alter this as traffic situations
warrant. Taxiing aircraft will not overtake or pass other aircraft without
Ground Control approval.

          (3) Taxi Speed. Taxi speeds in line areas will be no faster than a
person can walk. Taxi speeds in other areas will be no faster than a person
can trot.

          (4) Ground Control Frequency. Unless otherwise directed by ATC,
pilots will monitor Ground Control while operating on movement areas.

          (5) Night Taxi. The taxiing of aircraft on unlighted taxiways or
runways at night is prohibited for TW-4 aircraft. Taxi or landing lights
will be used except when use will hamper other aircraft or ground observers.

          (6) Emergencies. When Ground Control broadcasts an aircraft
emergency is in progress, ground traffic shall hold position until authorized
to proceed. Strict radio discipline shall be maintained during an emergency.

     B.   TAXI OUTBOUND.

          (1) Automatic Terminal Information Service (ATIS). Pilots shall
monitor ATIS to obtain taxi information and inform Ground Control that ATIS
information has been received prior to taxi (ATIS is also broadcast on the
NGP VOR 114.0).

             (2) Taxi in the Line Area.

              (a) T-44 Echo Line taxi procedures. Inbound and outbound T-
44’s taxiing in the Echo line will normally taxi toward the run-up area.
Outbound aircraft parked on the two back lines of Echo line will hold 5′ from
the edge of Charlie taxiway (south flow) at the intersection of Bravo and
Charlie taxiways or 5′ from the edge of Alpha taxiway (north flow) during pre-
taxi checks. Do not block T-34 inflow access to Golf line.


                                          1-1
              (b) T-34 Golf line taxi procedures (PLATE 1-2). Inbound T-34’s
entering the Golf line will enter from the south end between the tails of
parked T-34 aircraft. Make left hand traffic when established in the Golf
line until parked. Outbound aircraft parked in the last row of Golf line
will exit to the north and hold 5′ from the edge of Charlie taxiway by the
bottleneck during pre-taxi checks. Outbound aircraft parked in the middle
row of Golf line will exit using left turn(s) and hold short 5′ from the edge
of Charlie taxiway during pre-taxi checks, forward of the Hot Spot.

          (3) Taxi Clearance. An authorization to “taxi to” a runway
constitutes approval to cross intersecting runways and taxiways along the
published taxi route to the run-up area or approach end of the assigned
runway, but does not authorize access to a duty runway at any point. After
run-up is complete request “further taxi” from Ground Control.

          (4) Taxi Routes. Unless otherwise specified by ATC, use the
following taxi routes to the respective runway.

                 (a) Runway 13L - Via Charlie taxiway to Runway 22.

                 (b) Runway 13R - Via Charlie taxiway and Runway 22 to Yankee
taxiway.

              (c) Runways 31 and 35 - Via Charlie taxiway through Compass
Rose to Yankee taxiway.

                 (d) Runway 04 - Via Charlie taxiway and through Compass Rose to

           HAZARD. USE CAUTION WHEN TAXIING IN RUN-UP AREAS.

      D. TAXI INBOUND. After clearing the runway, TW-4 aircraft shall
contact Ground Control for inbound taxi clearance.

103. TRAFFIC PATTERNS. NGP traffic patterns are depicted on PLATE 1-3.
Normal entry is from the initial to an overhead maneuver. However, the tower
may specify a straight-in, downwind or base entry.

     A.    TRAFFIC PATTERN DIRECTION.

           (1) Runways 13L, 31L, 35, 4 - Left traffic

           (2) Runways 13R, 31R, 17, 22 - Right traffic

     B.    ALTITUDES.

           (1) Initial/Overhead at 1000 ft MSL.

           (2) Level on downwind - descend to 800 ft MSL.

           (3) Jet Traffic.

               (a) Initial - 2000 ft MSL.

               (b) Overhead - 1500 ft MSL.

               (c) When level on downwind and instructed by ATC - descend to
1000 ft MSL.

      C. HELICOPTER AUTOROTATION PATTERNS.    See Chapter 4 for helicopter
patterns.

      D. Tactical jet aircraft flight patterns are oriented as stated below
to minimize exposure to populated areas:

          (1) Runway 13R - Straight-in approach or right overhead
recommended.

          (2) Runway 04 - No change required.     Present left hand patterns do
not overfly populated areas.

           (3) Runway 35 - Straight-in approach or left overhead.

           (4) Runway 31L - Straight-in approach or left overhead recommended.

           (5) Runway 17 - Straight-in approach or right overhead.

      E. DELTA PATTERN. When a landing cannot be approved and delay is
expected, tower may direct an aircraft to continue in the traffic pattern at
a specified altitude, depart the pattern or enter the delta pattern. The
delta pattern is a racetrack pattern at 2000 ft MSL that conforms to the

                                        1-3
pattern for the runway in use. If parallel runways in use, the delta pattern
conforms to runway 13L/31R. Climbs into and descents out of the delta
pattern require tower approval. In the event of pattern saturation tower may
require full stops or departures via course rules for re-entry as additional
means of pattern management.

104. CNATRA REDUCED RUNWAY SEPARATION. Per CNATRAINST 3710.12 (series),
reduced runway separation is authorized for and applicable only between
CNATRA aircraft. CNATRA reduced runway separation should be utilized and is
authorized unless otherwise stated by tower. All others will be afforded
standard separation per FAAO 7110.65. CNATRA aircraft are grouped in order
of performance (high to low) as follows:
T-2/T-45, TC-12/T-44 AND T-34.

NOTE:   TW-4 SOLO AIRCRAFT SHALL NEVER TOUCH DOWN UNLESS THE RUNWAY IS
        OMPLETELY CLEAR.

NOTE:   TOWER WILL UTILIZE CNATRA REDUCED RUNWAY SEPARATION WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
        PILOTS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO RECEIVE TOWER APPROVAL FOR CNATRA REDUCED
        RUNWAY SEPARATION.

        A.   SUCCESSIVE FULL-STOP LANDINGS:

             (1) Same performance:   1500 ft.

             (2) Lower performance following higher performance:   1500 ft.

             (3) Higher performance following lower performance:   6000 ft.

        B.   SUCCESSIVE TOUCH AND GO’S:

             (1) Same performance:   Preceding aircraft is airborne and 1500 ft
of runway.

          (2) Lower performance following higher performance:      Preceding
aircraft is airborne and 1500 ft.

          (3) Higher performance following lower performance:      Preceding
aircraft is airborne and 4500 ft.

        C.   SUCCESSIVE VFR DEPARTURES:   1000 ft.

        D.   TOUCH AND GO BEHIND A FULL STOP:

             (1) Same performance:   4500 ft.

             (2) Lower performance following higher performance:   4500 ft.

             (3) Higher performance following lower performance:   6000 ft.

        E.   Full stop behind a touch and go:   Preceding aircraft is airborne.

        F.   All distances are measured from landing threshold.

105. TOUCH-AND-GO PATTERN OPERATIONS. Aircraft will advise the tower on
initial contact when requesting to remain in the pattern for successive touch
and go’s. Approval is based on traffic conditions and is solely at the
discretion of the control tower. Tower retains the option to cancel


                                          1-4
previously approved pattern work, utilize the Delta pattern, require a full
stop landing or have the aircraft depart via course rules for re-entry.

NOTE:   STUDENT SOLOS SHALL NOT BE REQUIRED TO DEPART THE PATTERN FOR RE-ENTRY
        VIA COURSE RULES. FULL STOP LANDINGS FOR PATTERN CONGESTION SHALL BE
        THE PRIMARY METHOD OF CONTROL.

        LAPL(P)S ARE AUTHORIZED BY ATC ON A WORKLOAD PERMITTING TO RUNWAY
        13R/31L ONLY. NO LAPL(P)S AUTHORIZED TO OFF-DUTY RUNWAYS. PILOTS
        SHALL REQUEST THE LAPL(P) AND RECEIVE APPROVAL PRIOR TO COMMENCING THE
        MANUEVER.

      A. After takeoff, climb on runway heading to a maximum altitude of 500
ft MSL. When cleared by Tower and at a minimum altitude of 300 ft MSL, turn
crosswind and climb to pattern altitude.

      B. Do not climb to Low Key within the pattern without specific tower
approval.

      C. CLOSED TRAFFIC OPERATIONS. If only one aircraft is in the pattern,
tower has the option of granting closed traffic approval for all climbs and
turns to the downwind at the pilot’s discretion. The only call required is
the gear call at the “180”. Climbs to low key still require specific
approval.

        D.   Advise the tower on crosswind when the next landing will be a full
stop.

                                  CHAPTER 2

                            FIXED WING DEPARTURES

201. GENERAL. Due to the heavy volume of air traffic at NAS Corpus Christi,
timely execution of ATC instructions is essential to a safe and orderly flow
of air traffic. If unanticipated delays are encountered in complying with a
takeoff clearance, advise ATC immediately. Comply with runway crossing
clearances in a timely manner.

202. TAKEOFF CLEARANCES.

      A. CLEARANCE. Pilots shall contact NAS Corpus Christi tower when
number one for departure and state any additional intentions/requests (e.g.
“homefield bounce”, “Portland departure”, “departure option”, etc.). Pilots
shall acknowledge all tower instructions and read back “position and hold” or
“hold short” instructions.

      B. HOLDING SHORT. When holding short of Runway 13L on Runway 04,
pilots awaiting VFR departure shall hold short to the right of the taxiway
centerline and IFR departures hold short to the left of the taxiway
centerline. Tower retains the option to segregate IFR from VFR departures by
assigning runways when the parallel runways are in use. Under dual tower
operations IFR traffic will normally utilize Runway 13R and VFR traffic will
utilize Runway 13L. If multiple aircraft holding short of 13L, do not block
Yankee taxiway.

      C. INTERSECTION DEPARTURE. Pilots may be cleared for an intersection
departure at tower discretion or upon pilot request. Pilots retain the
prerogative of using the full length of the runway.

      D. DEPARTURE OPTION. A pilot desiring the option to takeoff or
practice abort may request the “departure option”. Authorization for this
procedure DOES NOT allow a pilot to takeoff following the practice abort. If
the practice abort option is used, tower will issue a new takeoff clearance
when traffic allows.

      E. RESERVED DECK OR MAINTENANCE CLIMB DEPARTURES. After engine
maintenance is completed on aircraft, they must be flight checked to ensure
airworthiness. A climb to high key is initiated as soon as feasible after
departure. If difficulty is encountered enroute to high key, the pilot will
return via an actual PEL. When a reserved deck is requested, tower will
ensure no operations are conducted on the runway until the maintenance
aircraft reports “Ops Normal”.

NOTE:   AIRCRAFT REQUESTING A RESERVED DECK OR MAINTENANCE CLIMB WILL USE
        RUNWAY 13R/31L WHEN THE DUALS ARE IN USE. WHEN USING SINGLE RUNWAYS,
        DOWNWIND TURN WILL BE ASSIGNED BY THE TOWER.

      F. NAS Corpus Christi Tower will operate in a “dual” or “combined”
tower configuration when using the parallel runways (13/31).


                                      2-1
          (1) Runway 13 - IFR departures, Oso departures, Nueces departures,
Sunrise departures, VFR C-12’s (if required by fuel load) and reserve deck
maintenance T-34’s will taxi to Runway 13R via Yankee. All other aircraft
will taxi from the run-up to 13L.

          (2) Runway 31 - IFR departures, VFR C-12’s (if required by fuel
load) and reserve deck maintenance T-34’s will taxi from the run-up to Runway
31L via Yankee. Hold short of 31R until given clearance to cross by
ground. All other VFR aircraft will taxi from the run-up to Runway 31R via
Echo and Delta.

NOTE:   WHEN USING DUAL TOWER CONFIGURATION, THE OUTBOARD RUNWAY (SOUTH TOWER)
        WILL USE LOCAL CHANNEL 13, THE INBOARD (NORTH TOWER) WILL USE LOCAL
        CHANNEL 4. TOWER CONFIGURATION, DUAL OR COMBINED, WILL BE BROADCAST ON
        ATIS.

NOTE:   ADVISE GROUND ON INITIAL CONTACT OF NON-STANDARD REQUESTS (I.E. LAPL)
        UPON DEPARTURE, ETC.) TO ENSURE COORDINATION IS COMPLETE AND THE
        AIRCRAFT IS TAXIED TO THE APPROPRIATE RUNWAY.

203.    STANDARD DEPARTURE PROCEDURES (NON TW-4).

      A. IFR departures will be conducted in accordance with instructions
issued by ATC. When the field is VFR, aircraft departing IFR or on a missed
approach will remain at or below 500 ft MSL until reaching the departure end
of the runway, then climb as specified in their clearance or climb-out
instructions.

      B. VFR departures shall climb straight ahead and maintain 500 ft MSL
(runway 17/22: turn left heading 105 degrees at the departure end of the
runway).

204.    STANDARD DEPARTURE PROCEDURES (TW-4).

      A. IFR departures will be conducted in accordance with instructions
issued by ATC.

NOTE:   WHEN THE FIELD IS VFR, AIRCRAFT DEPARTING IFR OR ON A MISSED APPROACH
        SHALL REMAIN AT OR BELOW 500 ft MSL UNTIL REACHING THE DEPARTURE END OF
        THE RUNWAY THEN COMPLY WITH CLIMB OUT INSTRUCTIONS.

      B. For all VFR departures, turns after takeoff shall not be commenced
prior to 300 ft MSL.

            (1) VFR Departure Procedures. (Plate 2-1).

              (a) Departing Runway 13L, fly heading 125; departing Runway
13R, fly heading 135, Maintain 500 ft MSL and 170 KIAS until abeam the High
Bridge (JFK Causeway). When abeam the High Bridge, turn left to heading 105
degrees and climb at 150 KIAS to 2500 ft MSL. Passing the beach line,
commence turn on course and execute the area entry procedures in Chapter 5.
              (b) Departing Runway 31R, fly heading 315, reaching 300 ft MSL
execute right climbing turn (TOWER CLEARANCE NOT REQUIRED FOR TURN) at 150

                                       2-2
KIAS to 500 ft MSL. Once clear of the VFR traffic pattern, continue turn to
heading 105 degrees and climb to 2500 ft MSL. Passing the beach line,
commence turn on course and execute the area entry procedures in Chapter 5.
Departing RWY 31L, fly heading 305, maintain 500 ft MSL until cleared to turn
by tower. Once cleared, turn to heading 105 degrees and climb to 2500 ft
MSL. Passing the beach line, commence turn on course and execute area entry
procedures in Chapter 5.

              (c) Runways 17 and 22 - Fly runway heading, maintain 500 ft MSL
and 170 KIAS. At the departure end of the runway, turn left to heading 105
degrees. Maintain 500 ft MSL until abeam the High Bridge, then climb at 150
KIAS to 2500 ft MSL. Passing the beach line, commence turn on course and
execute the area entry procedures in Chapter 5.

              (d) Runways 4 and 35 - Fly runway heading, maintain 500 ft MSL at
170 KIAS. When clear of the VFR pattern, turn right to heading 105 degrees and
climb at 150 KIAS to 2500 ft MSL. Passing the beach line, commence turn on
course and execute the area entry procedures in Chapter 5.

WARNING:   IF DEPARTING AND UPWIND TRAFFIC IS STAYING IN THE PATTERN AND HAS
           NOT BEEN CLEARED DOWNWIND, A DANGEROUS OVERTAKING SITUATION CAN
           DEVELOP. MAINTAIN APPROPRIATE AIRSPEED TO AVOID OVERTAKING TRAFFIC
           AHEAD. ACCELERATE TO 150 KIAS (CLIMB) OR 170 KIAS (LEVEL) ONCE
           TRAFFIC AHEAD HAS CLEARED.

NOTE:   SEE COMTRAWINGFOURINST 3710.12 (series) (STANDARDIZATION NOTICE, T-
        34C) FOR ADDITIONAL AMPLIFICATION OF T-34 FORMATION FLIGHT COURSE
        RULES.

           (2) Mustang/Seagull/Juliett/Cheetah Departures. Squawk appropriate
code and contact Corpus Departure when cleared to switch by tower. Advise
Corpus Approach of intentions on initial contact, specifying working area.
Follow the appropriate departure route depicted on PLATE 2-1 and described in
Chapter 5.

WARNING:   SIMULTANEOUS DEPARTURES ROUTINELY OCCUR WHEN THE PARALLEL RUNWAYS
           ARE IN USE.

              (a) Departures to Central Mustang. South flow maintain 170
KIAS until the high bridge then turn to 105 degree heading and climb at 150
KIAS toward the beach line. North flow departures maintain 170 KIAS in turn
to 105 degree heading and climb to 2500 ft. At beach line continue climb at
120 KIAS and when passing 3200 ft terminate from (CH 8) to (CH 17) and
request working block. At 10 DME on 105 degree heading turn to approximately
030 to 035 heading making sure to stay outside of Central Eastern Boundary.
By 500 ft prior to reaching working altitude you are cleared to enter
Central. Ingress should be in the vicinity of Mustang Beach Airport well
clear of area 4 Southern Boundary. Once on altitude and established
terminate with (CH 17) and switch to (CH 18) and make your advisory call.

CAUTION:   COURSE RULES TRAFFIC TRAVELING NORTHBOUND ALONG THE BEACH LINE AT
           1000 FT COULD PRESENT A CONFLICT. AN EARLIER TRANSITION TO A 120
           KIAS CLIMB MAY BE REQUIRED TO AVOID CONFLICTING TRAFFIC.

              (b) Maintenance Areas - Follow VFR departure procedures and
passing the beach line continue climb through 4500 ft MSL. Passing 3500 ft
MSL contact Corpus Approach (CH 5).



                                      2-3
              (c) A632B Low Areas – Aircraft using low working areas (i.e.

                   FIXED WING ARRIVALS TO NAS CORPUS CHRISTI

301.    GENERAL.

      A. STANDARD TRAFFIC PATTERNS. NAS Corpus Christi traffic patterns are
depicted on PLATE 1-3 and discussed in paragraphs 103 through 105. Unless
otherwise specified, normal pattern entry for jet and TW-4 aircraft is from
an overhead maneuver. However, tower may specify a straight in, downwind or
base entry.

NOTE:   TOWER MAY DIRECT AIRCRAFT TO CLIMB TO THE OVERHEAD DELTA PATTERN AND
        HOLD AS DIRECTED AT 2000 ft IN THE EVENT OF PATTERN SATURATION. TOWER
        MAY REQUEST FULL STOPS OR DEPARTURE VIA COURSE RULES FOR RE-ENTRY FROM
        PT. SHAMROCK AS ADDITIONAL MEANS OF PATTERN MANAGEMENT.

        B.   DELTA PATTERN ENTRY PROCEDURES.

          (1) From the initial - Aircraft will climb to 2000 ft MSL for the
delta pattern and proceed inbound for a standard pattern for the runway in
use, or as assigned by the tower. When parallel runways in use Delta pattern
shall conform to 13L/31R.

          (2) From the pattern - When directed by the tower climb to the
Delta pattern and hold.

NOTE:   THESE ARE NOT NORDO PROCEDURES. IF NORDO, FOLLOW VFR LOST
        OMMUNICATION PROCEDURES (PARAGRAPH 305).

             (3) Descent - Descend on the downwind when directed by tower.

        C.   RUNWAY TRAFFIC LIMITATIONS.

             (1) IFR Traffic.

              (a) When on single runway operations, multiple approaches will
not normally be authorized. NAS Corpus Christi tower may authorize multiple
approaches workload permitting.

              (b) When conducting IFR practice approaches in VMC conditions,
maintain 500 ft until the departure end prior to executing the published
missed approach climb out.

             (2) VFR Traffic.

              (a) When NAS Corpus Christi is on 13/31 the VFR pattern will be
limited to six aircraft.

              (b) When NAS Corpus Christi is on single runway the VFR pattern
will be limited to two aircraft. Pattern aircraft can expect multiple wave-
offs for departures and priority IFR aircraft.

      D. TW-4 aircraft overhead maneuver is flown at 1000 ft MSL, 170 KIAS
level flight, slightly offset (100 ft to 200 ft) from the center of the
runway to the pattern side to maintain visual reference with pattern traffic.
Descent to pattern altitude of 800 ft MSL is authorized when established on
downwind.

                                           3-1
      E. GEAR DOWN REPORT. A gear down report to tower shall be made by the
pilot prior to one mile on a straight-in approach or at the 180-degree
position in the traffic pattern. (NOTE: T-44 or TC-12 aircraft performing
practice single engine emergencies in the pattern shall report gear down no
later than 90-degree position.)

NOTE:   GEAR HELD FOR ANY REASON SHALL BE ANNOUNCED TO TOWER PRIOR TO THE 180-
        DEGREE POSITION OR ONE MILE ON FINAL.

      F. Do not initiate a climb to low key within the pattern without
specific tower approval. Do not perform an AOA approach without tower
approval.
      G. INTERVAL DEFINITIONS FOR TW-4 AIRCRAFT. Interval is defined as
adequate separation between aircraft. Proper interval occurs when any of the
following conditions are met.

NOTE:   PATTERN INTERVAL SHOULD ALWAYS BE SUFFICIENT TO ENABLE A WAVE-OFF
        WITHOUT PASSING A TOUCH-AND-GO AIRCRAFT.

          (1) T-34 Overhead Interval.    The aircraft ahead is 45 degrees
behind your wingtip.

           (2) T-34 Pattern Interval.

              (a) The touch-and-go aircraft has passed abeam your wingtip and
has completed at least 90 degrees of crosswind turn.

              (b) The aircraft ahead is performing an AOA Approach or Full
Stop landing and is 45 degrees behind your wingtip.

              (c) When performing an AOA Approach and the aircraft ahead is
25 degrees ahead of your wingtip and has completed at least 90 degrees of his
crosswind turn.

           (3) T-44 Overhead and Pattern Interval.

                (a) Following T-44/TC-12 full stop aircraft, 30 degrees behind
your wingtip.

              (b) Following T-44/TC-12 touch-and-go aircraft, 15 degrees
ahead of the wing, abeam if the aircraft is still in a crosswind turn.

                (c) Following T-34, 30 degrees behind your wingtip.

           (4) TC-12 Overhead and Pattern Interval.

                (a) Following T-44/TC-12 full stop aircraft, 30 degrees behind
your wingtip.

                (b) Following T-44/TC-12 touch-and-go aircraft, abeam your
wingtip.
                (c) Following T-34, 30 degrees behind your wingtip.

      H. WAVE-OFFS. Wave-offs shall be made to the pattern side of the
runway at or below 500 ft MSL, unless otherwise directed by tower. Avoid
overtaking other traffic in the pattern.


                                        3-2
302.    ARRIVAL PROCEDURES (NON TW-4 AIRCRAFT).

      A. IFR - Entry procedures will be in accordance with Standard
Instrument Approach Procedures and current Letters of Agreement.

        B.   VFR.

          (1) Fixed Wing (Jet). Due to the high volume of training aircraft
in the area, several restrictions are placed on transient operations. Refer
to the IFR Supplement and other DOD FLIP Enroute Publications for specific
details.

              (a) Pilots shall contact Corpus Approach at least fifteen miles
from the airport with the current ATIS information for NAS Corpus Christi.
If the pilot cannot accept the runway in use (due to length etc.), advise
Corpus Approach on initial contact. Pilots can expect an overhead maneuver
or vectors for a straight-in approach for the runway in use. A Pt. Lima
Arrival may be requested when arriving from the south (see paragraph
302.B.3).

              (b) Tactical aircraft arriving via an overhead maneuver will
proceed to a five-mile initial at 2000 ft MSL. Maintain 2000 ft MSL until
tower authorizes descent to 1500 ft MSL. The break point will be specified
by ATC. Make a level turn at 1500 ft MSL, do not descend below 1500 ft MSL
until authorized by ATC.

NOTE:   RESTRICTIONS APPLY ON THE DIRECTION OF THE OVERHEAD MANUEVER FOR JET
        TRAFFIC. REFER TO PARA 103 OF THIS INSTRUCTION.

          (2) Fixed Wing (Prop). Pilots desiring a VFR entry shall contact
Corpus Approach at least 10 miles prior to the entry point with the current
ATIS information. If you cannot accept the runway in use (due to length
etc.), advise Corpus Approach on initial contact. Except as noted below,
expect sequencing for a standard straight-in approach to the runway in use.

          (3) Pt. Lima Arrival. Customs and Coast Guard aircraft may request
this alternate arrival procedure if runways 04, 13R, 31L/R or 35 are in use.

303.    ARRIVAL PROCEDURES (TW-4 AIRCRAFT).

      A. NAS Corpus Christi Tower will operate in a “combined” or “dual”
tower configuration on the parallel runways (13/31) depending on traffic
volume and wing schedule. During dual tower configuration, all Pt. Shamrock
arrivals shall contact North Tower (CH 4) and conduct arrivals and pattern
work on the inboard runway (13L/31R). All IFR arrivals and Pt.
Sunrise/Nueces/Oso/Lima arrivals shall contact South Tower (CH 13) and
conduct arrivals and pattern work on the outboard runway (13R/31L). Pt.
Sunrise Transitions to Cabaniss from Pt. Shamrock will remain on North Tower
(CH 4). PPEL traffic will be assigned a runway at the time of request.
During combined tower configuration, all aircraft shall contact NAS Corpus
Christi Tower (CH 4).

      B. IFR - Entry procedures will be in accordance with Standard
Instrument Approach Procedures and current Letters of Agreement.

      C. VFR - VFR arrivals to NAS Corpus Christi will primarily utilize Pt.
Shamrock or Pt. Sunrise. Pt. Lima may be used in emergencies. Terminate
with Corpus Approach and switch to NAS Corpus Christi upon arrival at the
appropriate VFR entry checkpoint.

into NAS Corpus Christi traffic pattern via a PPEL will only be approved when
traffic permits. Contact Corpus Approach with request.

            (a) Tower will specify the direction of turn and instruct pilot
to report High Key and Low Key. When the aircraft reports Low Key, a landing
clearance will normally be issued.

               (b) PPEL’s will be suspended when delta pattern is in use.

NOTE:   PPEL’S ARE NOT NORMALLY APPROVED WHEN SINGLE RUNWAY OPERATIONS ARE IN
        USE AT NAS CORPUS CHRISTI. WALDRON IS THE PRIMARY AIRFIELD FOR PPEL’S.

      D. TOWER COMMUNICATIONS SATURATION – If unable to establish two-way
communications with the tower by the initial due to radio saturation;
continue inbound to the duty runway and rock wings (day)/flash navigation
lights (night) and re-attempt radio contact with tower. If unable to
establish contact by the upwind numbers continue outbound; south flow runways
(13L/R, 17, 22) shall not climb to 2,500 ft on departure and may maintain
1000 ft throughout departure and re-entry, north flow runways (31R/L, 04, 35)
shall comply with standard course rules departure procedures to ensure
separation from traffic inbound from Shamrock.

304. SPECIAL VFR ARRIVALS. Special VFR aircraft entering the Class D
airspace will proceed in accordance with routes and altitudes specified by
ATC. TRAWING FOUR aircraft are prohibited from Special VFR operations.

305.    LOST COMMUNICATION PROCEDURES.

        A.   Squawk lost communications transponder code (7600).

        B.   Attempt communications with PRC-90 (T-34/TC-12).

      C. Attempt to obtain current ATIS (NOTE: TRUAX VOR broadcasts ATIS
information). Additionally, ATC may attempt communications on NGP VOR
frequency during lost communication situations. If unable to obtain ATIS
information and weather permits, overfly NAS Corpus Christi at or above 3500
ft MSL to determine duty runway.

      D. Intercept course rules via the appropriate VFR arrival route.
Continue to make all radio calls in the blind. Rock wings when inbound for
the break and check for interval prior to performing break maneuver.




                                         3-8
      E. On short final, if no ALDIS lamp signal is observed, perform a
wave-off. On the second pass, if no lamp signal is observed and the runway
is clear, land.

                             HELICOPTER OPERATIONS

401.   GENERAL.

      A. HELICOPTER LANDING AREAS - There are several designated helicopter-
landing areas on or near NAS Corpus Christi.

          (1) South Line Hangar 58 - Helo arrivals/departures will be
conducted from Helo Spot 2 (Yankee Taxiway between Echo and Alpha taxiways)
or from Helo Spot 1 (Delta Taxiway) or as directed by the control tower.
Helicopters for the Quarterdeck will land as directed by the tower and then
taxi to the Quarterdeck.

          (2) Coast Guard, HM-15 and Corpus Christi Army Depot - Coast Guard
helicopters will normally use the seawall pad adjacent to Hangar 41. HM-15
helicopters will use the seawall pad adjacent to Hangar 42 or as outlined
below in paragraph 403. CCAD helicopters will normally use the pad adjacent
to hangars 45 and 46.

402.   CCAD/HM-15 TRANSIENT HELICOPTER DEPARTURES/ARRIVALS (PLATE 4-1).

       A.   IFR - Helicopters will proceed per departure instructions issued by
ATC.

      B. VFR - Helicopters will not operate above 300 ft MSL while in Navy
Corpus Class D airspace unless otherwise directed by ATC. Helicopters
departing from the seawall are not visible from the control tower and should
exercise extreme caution. Departures will avoid over flying the armory on
Pt. Dimmit.

       C.   SEAWALL DEPARTURE/ARRIVALS (PLATE 4-2).

          (1) Aircraft departing the Seawall will climb to 300 ft AGL until
reaching the barrier in the vicinity of hangar 47. At the Hangar 47 barrier,
side step to the seaward side of the breakwater and maintain a minimum of one
rotor disc separation. Direct over flight of the Seawall will be avoided
east of the barrier.

          (2) Arriving aircraft will contact ATC prior to entering Class D
airspace, maintain at or below 300 ft MSL and proceed to the Seawall as
authorized by ATC.

       D.   OSO DEPARTURES/ARRIVALS.

          (1) Seawall Oso Departure (PLATE 4-3) - Request approval for a “
Oso Departure.” Depart the seawall heading 030, maintain 300 ft MSL. When
directed by tower, circumnavigate NGP to west, remaining feet-wet. After
crossing Runway 13R extended centerline, cross Shoreline Drive at the low
bridge and intercept the Oso Departure as indicated in paragraph 403.d.

          (2) Seawall Oso Arrival (PLATE 4-3) - Used for arrivals from the
south and CRP. Contact NOLF Cabaniss south of London School for traffic
advisories. Maintain 500 ft MSL, proceed through Chapman Ranch. Remain 1 NM
south of Oso Creek. Abeam King’s Crossing Country Club turn easterly, follow
Oso Creek to intercept Oso Bay. Turn north and remain feet wet over the Oso
Bay to avoid populated areas. Descend to 300 ft MSL. Contact NOLF Waldron


                                       4-1
for traffic advisories.    Abeam the water tower contact NGP tower for landing
seawall.

403. SPECIAL VFR OPERATIONS. When conducting SVFR operations, all
helicopters will operate along the Mustang Route and/or in accordance with
clearances and/or instructions issued by NAS Corpus Christi Air Traffic
Control Facility (ATCF). This does not constitute authority for a pilot to
deviate from any applicable provisions of Federal Aviation Regulations.

      A. MUSTANG ROUTE (SVFR) - That route between NGP and Mustang Island
that follows the north shoreline of NAS Corpus Christi to Pt. Dimmit at the
eastern end of the station, direct to Marker 3, and directly east to Mustang
Island. Aircraft departing NGP Class D airspace to the east will avoid
overflying the armory at Pt. Dimmit below 600 ft MSL. This route will be
flown by all helicopters and tenant helicopters covered by LOA’s.

404. T. P. MCCAMPBELL AIRFIELD OPERATIONS. T. P. McCampbell Airport is
located 16 NM north of NAS Corpus Christi and 4 NM west of Aransas Pass
Airport. It is an uncontrolled airport used by HM-15, TRAWING Four
“Formation Flights” for practice PPEL’s, USCG, CCAD and NAS helicopters.

WARNING:     USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN WORKING ON OR NEAR THIS AIRPORT. USE
             XTREME CAUTION, H-53 HELICOPTERS PRODUCE DANGEROUS WAKE TURBULENCE.

      A. TW-4 aircraft may utilize the field for practice PPELs,
but shall only conduct low approaches. Available for T-34 IP/IP
or IP/IUT landing pattern practice and practice simulated
emergencies. IPs shall make advisory calls prior to arrival and
while conducting pattern operations on the CTAF (122.7). If other
military aircraft are working T.P. McCampbell, the field may only
be used on a not-to-interfere basis with those aircraft having
priority.

NOTE:   CORPUS APPROACH CONTROL WILL NOT PROVIDE ADVISORY SERVICES TO AIRCRAFT
        CONDUCTING OPERATIONS IN THE PATTERN AT T.P. McCAMPBELL AIRPORT.
        EXPECT APPROACH TO “TERMINATE” THE FLIGHT.

        B.   HM-15 PROCEDURES.

          (1) Arrivals - Aircraft will make a general broadcast on the UNICOM
frequency (122.7 MHZ), 5 miles south of the field, climb to 1000 ft MSL and
fly a ground track between the refinery and the liquid storage tanks.
Pattern entry is as follows:

              (a) Runway 31 - Left base entry for the initial landing.
Thereafter, aircraft will make a right hand pattern at 500 ft MSL.

              (b) Runway 13 - Cross the extended upwind of the runway and
enter a left downwind at 500 ft MSL.

          (2) Departures - Aircraft will broadcast intentions to depart on
the UNICOM frequency and proceed south, reversing their entry ground track.
Aircraft will make a right turnout on the upwind when using Runway 13 and a
left turnout on the upwind when using Runway 31.

405.    MOP OPS (MAGNETIC ORANGE PIPE).




                                          4-2
      A. MOP Ops are HM-15 low level over-water training flights utilizing a
large orange pipe suspended beneath the helicopter. They are conducted at or
below 150 ft AGL in two designated MOP OPS areas (PLATE 4-4). The two areas
set aside are:

          (1) Within NGP Class D airspace - Located approximately 1 NM NNE of
the seawall over Corpus Christi Bay. The area is rectangular in shape, 3000
yds. long and 1000 yds. wide and lies on a 104/284 degrees magnetic heading.

          (2) Outside NGP Class D airspace - Located near Pt. Ingleside on
Corpus Christi Bay. It is 3000 yds long and 1000 yds wide and lies on a
084/264 degrees magnetic heading.

      B. Radio communications with NGP tower is required while operating in
Class D airspace.

406.    HM-15 SEAWALL FCLP PATTERN.

      A. HM-15 is authorized to conduct closed pattern Field Carrier Landing
Practice (FCLP) to the seawall. The FCLP pattern will be left hand traffic,
300 ft MSL and limited to one aircraft. Landing gear will remain down at all
times while in closed traffic. The following procedures are to be adhered
to:

          (1) Request and receive approval from the control tower (340.2) to
remain in closed traffic for FCLPs prior to departure.

             (2) Monitor the tower frequency at all times.

          (3) Advise the tower when FCLPs are complete and relay total number
of landings.

407.    HM-15 REFUELING ROUTE.

      A. The HM-15 refueling route is located four miles either side of the
NGP 170R from 30-70 DME. The aircraft will be working VFR from 2000-10,000
MSL making east turns only. One KC-130 will practice refueling with one or
more H-53 helicopters.

      B. VFR aircraft will depart NGP and contact CRP Approach (CH 5) for
flight following to the refueling area. Aircraft requesting an IFR clearance
to the refueling area should file an IFR flight plan with NGP prior to
departing. The preferred IFR route is NGP170030. Cancel IFR flight plan
upon reaching the refueling area.

408.    LOST COMMUNICATION PROCEDURES.

        A.   Squawk lost communications transponder code (7600).

      B. Attempt to obtain current ATIS (NOTE: NGP VOR 114.0 broadcasts
ATIS information). Additionally, ATC may attempt communications on this VOR
frequency during lost communication situations.

      C. For all helicopters, intercept course rules via the East Seawall
Arrival, make an approach to and land on the Seawall. Continue to make all
radio calls “in the blind.”

NOTE:    BE ALERT FOR OTHER HELICOPTER TRAFFIC OPERATING TO/FROM THE SEAWALL.


                                         4-3
NOTE:   IF AN APPROACH TO THE AIRPORT IS REQUIRED, CONTINUE INBOUND AND LAND ON
        THE APPROACH END OF RUNWAY 22. AVOID FIXED WING AIRCRAFT OPERATING ON
        THE TAXIWAYS.

409.    FCF OPERATIONS.

      A. For all helicopters, FCF ground and hover operations are performed
over the seawall.

      B. For all helicopters, FCF in-flight operations are performed over
Mustang Island. (Refer to paragraph 109 of this instruction.) Second pass,
if no lamp signal is observed and the runway is clear, land.

                                TRAINING AREAS

501. GENERAL. Primary TW-4 flight training areas consist of Special Use
Airspace known as Mustang, Seagull, Delta, Juliett and Foxtrot. Mustang and
Seagull are contained within A-632B and portions of W-228A, Delta is
contained within the southern half of A-632D, Juliett is contained within A-
632C and Foxtrot is contained within A-632F. The Cheetah training area is a
defined training area located between the HRL 050R to 100R from 20 to 37 DME.
HM-15 MOP OPS training areas are described in paragraph 517.

502. COAST GUARD OPERATIONS. Pilots will remain alert for U.S. Coast Guard
low-level air operations conducted in the Mustang Area (PLATE 5-1). Within
the depicted area, Coast Guard HU-25A Falcon aircraft conduct training and
operational missions involving the aerial delivery of search and rescue
equipment from pattern altitudes of 100 ft AGL to 1000 ft AGL. Coast Guard
HH-65A Dauphin helicopters conduct similar training and hoisting evolutions
from the surface to 300 ft AGL. This area is used for day and night
operations. It is not uncommon for Coast Guard aircraft to be below entry
points/routes while conducting search and rescue operations within designated
NAS Corpus Christi/Navy Training Areas.

503. T-34 MUSTANG TRAINING AREAS. The Mustang Area is subdivided into
North, Central and South as follows: (PLATE 5-2)

      A. NORTH MUSTANG - North Mustang is defined as the airspace from the
surface up to, but not including, 18,000 ft MSL from the northern boundary of
A-632B extending south to a line from the ship channel at Port Aransas
through the town of Ingleside. The eastern boundary extends five miles
seaward from the beach. The western boundary is defined as a line extending
southwest from Aransas National Wildlife Refuge Airport to the town of
Gregory.

NOTE:   MINIMUM ALTITUDE OVER THE MATAGORDA ISLAND WILDLIFE REFUGE IS 3000 FT
        AGL.

      B. CENTRAL MUSTANG - Central Mustang is defined as the airspace from
6500 ft MSL up to, but not including 18,000 ft MSL from the southern boundary
of North Mustang extending south to a line through NOLF Waldron and Bob Hall
Pier. The eastern boundary extends five miles seaward from the beach. The
western boundary is defined as a line extending from the intersection of
Airline Rd. and Ocean Dr. through the Aluminum Plant to a point just west of
T. P. McCampbell.

          (1) Maintenance Area - T-34 Functional Check Flights are conducted
in the southeast portion of Central Mustang and is defined as the area from
Bob Hall Pier to Fish Pass to NAS Corpus Christi, over the intracoastal
waterway and extending five miles seaward from the shoreline. Altitude block
is 6500 ft MSL to 18,000 ft MSL.

      C. SOUTH MUSTANG - South Mustang is defined as the airspace from the
surface up to, but not including 18,000 ft MSL from the southern boundary of
Central Mustang extending south to the southern boundary of A-632B. The
eastern boundary extends five miles seaward from the beach. The western
boundary is better defined as a line from Pt. Chapman extending southeast
through Camel Humps to the southern coast of Baffin Bay.

            ISLAND BETWEEN MUSTANG BEACH AIRPORT AND MALAQUITE BEACH.

CAUTION:   THE NORTHERN SECTIONS OF WORKING AREAS 1 AND 2 ARE OVER ARANSAS
           WILDLIFE REFUGE AREA. AIRCRAFT USING THE AREAS NORTH OF THE
           SANDBOX SHALL REMAIN AT OR ABOVE 3000 FT AGL.

NOTE:   STUDENT SOLO FLIGHTS HAVE PRIORITY IN NORTH AND SOUTH MUSTANG WORKING
        AREAS. IF ALL AREAS ARE OCCUPIED WHEN A STUDENT SOLO CHECKS IN, AN
        AIRCRAFT MUST DEPART FOR THE STUDENT SOLO.

      B. BASIC INSTRUMENTS (BI) (PLATE 5-3). For BI stage flights, the T-34
Mustang area is divided into North and South BI areas by the CRP 120R. The
North BI areas occupy the airspace directly above   T-34 working areas 1-4
and the northern half of Central Mustang. The South BI areas occupy the
airspace directly above T-34 working areas 5-8 and the southern half of
Central Mustang. Aircraft will obtain a block from Corpus Approach once
airborne.

              Block A (North/South) - 10,500 ft MSL to 12,500 ft MSL
              Block B (North/South) - 13,000 ft MSL to 15,000 ft MSL
              Block C (North/South) - 15,500 ft MSL to 17,500 ft MSL

          (1) Entry Procedures - Departing NAS Corpus Christi, contact Corpus
Approach (CH 8) stating “working BI north” or “working BI south.” Maintain
2500 ft MSL crossing the beach. At NGP 11 DME, climb and terminate with


                                         5-2
Corpus Approach (CH 8). Contact Corpus Approach (CH 17) and obtain a BI block
upon initial contact. At NGP 13 DME, turn northbound to parallel beach when
transiting to a north block or southbound to parallel the beach when
transiting to a south block. Remain east of T-34 Mustang Areas at all times.
Passing 10,000 ft MSL (blocks A or B), advise Corpus Approach (CH 17) and
switch to CH 18 and make an advisory call. Passing the base altitude turn
westbound into the assigned BI block. If water or air temperature precludes
extended over-water flight, coordinate climb with Corpus Approach in
accordance with local SOP. If maintenance area or Mustang working areas are
unoccupied they may be used to climb to BI Blocks. If assigned Block C North
or South, coordinate frequency change with Corpus Approach (CH 17) and
contact Houston Center (128.15/350.3) for traffic advisories.

          (2) Penetration Points – Prior to starting the penetration, contact
Corpus Approach (CH 17) with position and intentions and then make an
advisory call on CH 18. The aircraft will be flown over the penetration
point heading east for a minimum of two minutes prior to commencing a
penetration. The two penetration points depicted on (PLATE 5-3) are:

               (a) Sand Box (North) - NGP 038/32 heading 090 degrees.

               (b) Malaquite Beach (South) - NGP 173/15 heading 090 degrees.

             HUMPS SHOULD REMAIN ALERT FOR AIRCRAFT TRANSITING TO/FROM THE
             JULIETT AREA. REMAIN ALERT FOR T-44’S ON SOUTHERN ENTRY TO
             CABANISS FROM BAFFIN BAY.

508. TC-12/T-44 SEAGULL TRAINING AREAS (PLATE 5-3). The area is subdivided
into North, Central and South Areas. Each area is further subdivided into
five altitude blocks as follows:

               Block   1           Surface       to          3000'   MSL
               Block   2         4000' MSL       to          6000'   MSL
               Block   3         7000' MSL       to          9000'   MSL
               Block   4       10,000' MSL       to        12,000'   MSL
               Block   5       13,000' MSL       to        15,000'   MSL

      A. NORTH AREA - Defined as the airspace from the surface up to and
including 15,000 ft MSL from the THX 100R south to the CRP 100R. The western
boundary is the western boundary of W-228A/Ship Area. The eastern boundary
is the 60 DME arc from the CRP VORTAC.

      B. CENTRAL AREA - Defined as the airspace from the surface up to and
including 15,000 ft MSL from the CRP 100R south to the CRP 130R. The western
boundary is the western boundary of the Ship Area. The eastern boundary is
the 60 DME arc from the CRP VORTAC. During NAS Corpus Christi runway 31
operations, and when required by Corpus Approach, the Gulf Area shall be
released by Seagull. Seagull shall direct all aircraft operating in the
central block to remain east of the CRP 35 DME arc. Corpus Approach may
request additional altitudes and/or a lateral extension to either the CRP 40
or 45 DME arcs when needed to meet traffic demands.

                                        5-4
      C. SOUTH AREA - Defined as the airspace from the surface up to and
including 15,000 ft MSL from the CRP 130R south to the CRP 156/60. The
western boundary is the western boundary of W-228A/Ship Area. The eastern
boundary is the 60 DME arc from the CRP VORTAC.

      D. WORKING ALTITUDES ABOVE 15,000. For working altitudes above 15,000
MSL, coordinate with Seagull and contact Houston Center (128.15/350.3) for
advisories. Cancel advisories with Houston Center and contact Seagull
descending through 15,000 ft MSL.

509.    TC-12/T-44 SEAGULL AREA OPERATING PROCEDURES (PLATE 5-3).

      A. Aircraft will contact “Seagull” for block assignments prior to
takeoff. Aircraft operating in NAS Corpus Christi or Cabaniss landing
patterns may request block assignments through the appropriate tower.
Airspace blocks may be shared by two aircraft if pilots coordinate and with
Seagull concurrence.

      B. Departing NAS Corpus Christi, contact Corpus Departure and state
intentions. Terminate with Corpus Approach and contact Seagull approaching
the CRP 130/26 (central or south blocks) or turning 040 degrees (north
blocks). If unable to terminate due to frequency congestion, termination is
automatic entering W-228A or the Ship Area. While operating in an assigned
block, monitor “Seagull” and TC-12/T-44 common frequency.

        C.   AREA ENTRY.

          (1) North - After crossing the beach line, proceed direct to the
CRP 100/26 fix at 2500 ft MSL. Crossing the CRP 100/26, fly heading 040
degrees to avoid opposite-direction aircraft descending out of the North
Block. Terminate with Corpus Approach, contact Seagull then climb to assigned
block altitude. During the climb, stay greater than five miles seaward from
the beach (east of T-34 Mustang areas) and west of W-228A. Passing the lowest
altitude of the assigned block, turn eastbound into the assigned block.

          (2) Central and South - After crossing the beach line, proceed to
the CRP 130/026 fix at 2500 ft MSL. Climb on the CRP 130R to assigned block
altitude. Terminate with Corpus Approach and contact Seagull at 26 DME, no
later than 33.8 DME.

NOTE:   A BUFFER ZONE FOR THE CLIMB AND DESCENT RADIALS IS THREE RADIALS ON
        EITHER SIDE. AIRCRAFT ESTABLISHED IN A BLOCK WILL AVOID THESE BUFFER
        ZONES TO PREVENT TRAFFIC CONFLICTS.

      D. AREA EXIT - All aircraft will terminate with Seagull prior to
contacting Corpus Approach.

          (1) North and Central – Exiting the area to NAS Corpus Christi or
Cabaniss, descend on the CRP 100R to cross the CRP 100/26 at 1000 ft MSL and
proceed as described in paragraph 303 or 705. Exiting the area to Orange
Grove, descend/climb on the 100R to cross the CRP 100/26 at 5500 ft MSL.
Approaching the fix, contact Corpus Approach and request “VFR to Orange
Grove”. Proceed direct to Orange Grove at 5500 ft MSL and follow the
procedures described in paragraph 512.

          (2) South - All flights will exit the working area via the CRP
156R. Flights landing at NAS Corpus Christi will cross the CRP 156/38 at or
below 4500 ft MSL and proceed as described in paragraph 303. Flights landing


                                       5-5
at Cabaniss will cross the CRP 156/43 at 4500 ft MSL and proceed as described
in paragraph 705. For flights exiting the area to Orange Grove, proceed
direct to Chapman Ranch, climb/descend to 6500 ft MSL and follow the
procedures described in paragraph 512.

510. TC-12/T-44 ALTERNATE SEAGULL TRAINING AREA (PLATE 5-4). In the event
the CRP VORTAC is inoperative, the TC-12/T-44 Seagull Area will be subdivided
into two areas defined by radials off the NGP VORTAC. Designated North and
South Seagull, these areas are described below.

             Block   1           Surface     to      3000'   MSL
             Block   2         4000' MSL     to      6000'   MSL
             Block   3         7000' MSL     to      9000'   MSL
             Block   4       10,000' MSL     to    12,000'   MSL
             Block   5       13,000' MSL     to    15,000'   MSL

      A. NORTH SEAGULL - The airspace from the surface up to and including
15,000 ft MSL from the NGP 060R south to the NGP 110R. The western boundary
is a line between the NGP 060/29 and 110/19. The eastern boundary is the 42
DME arc from the NGP VORTAC. Area entry is via the NGP 110R and departure is
via the NGP 060R. Depart per paragraph 509.D.1 utilizing the NGP 060/29 in
place of the CRP 100/26.

      B. SOUTH SEAGULL - The airspace from the surface up to and including
15,000 ft MSL from the NGP 110R south to the NGP 160R. The western boundary
is a line between the NGP 110/19 and 160/42. The eastern boundary is the 42
DME arc from the NGP VORTAC. Area entry is via the NGP 110R and departure is
via the NGP 160R. Descending below block altitude is not authorized until
established on the departure radial without Seagull authorization. Depart
per paragraph 509.D.2 utilizing the NGP 160/42 in place of the CRP 156/43.

NOTE:    A BUFFER ZONE FOR THE CLIMB AND DESCENT RADIALS IS THREE RADIALS ON
         EITHER SIDE. AIRCRAFT ESTABLISHED IN A BLOCK WILL AVOID THIS BUFFER
         ZONE TO PREVENT TRAFFIC CONFLICTS.

511. FOXTROT TRAINING AREA (PLATE 5-5). Foxtrot is defined as the airspace
from 3000 ft AGL up to, but not including 18,000 ft MSL, from the northern
boundary of A-632F extending south to the northern boundary of A-632B. The
eastern boundary extends five miles seaward from the beach.

NOTE:   MINIMUM ALTITUDE OVER THE ARANSAS WILDLIFE REFUGE IS 3000 FT AGL.

      A. AREA UTILIZATION - Foxtrot may be used as additional working areas
in the North, available for FAM, PA and Formation flights. Aircraft using
Foxtrot will remain north of Aransas National Wildlife Refuge Airport.
Foxtrot working area boundaries are strictly over water.

        Fox 1 - Port O’Connor to northern edge of San Antonio Bay over the
                  intracoastal waterway.
        Fox 2 - Port O’Connor to a point abeam northern edge of San Antonio
                  Bay, from the beach line eastward.
        Fox 3 - Northern edge San Antonio Bay to Aransas National Wildlife
                  Refuge Airport over the intracoastal waterway.
        Fox 4 - Abeam northern edge of San Antonio Bay to Aransas National
                  Wildlife Refuge Airport, from the beach line eastward.

      B. AREA ENTRY/EXIT PROCEDURES - Foxtrot entry/exit procedures are the
same as North Mustang procedures (paragraph 505.A.1). Corpus Approach will

                                       5-6
be unable to provide traffic advisories in Foxtrot. Aircraft shall monitor
UHF 337.8 for all altitudes to deconflict with other TW-4 aircraft using the
North Mustang work areas.

NOTE:   BE AWARE THAT INBOUND IFR TRAFFIC FROM THE NORTHEAST MAY BE CLEARED TO
        THE NGP 038 RADIAL AT 40 DME AT 6000 FT MSL.

512.    JULIETT TRAINING AREA (PLATE 5-6).

      A. AREA DESCRIPTION. The Juliett area is that airspace whose
geographical boundaries fall within A-632 A and C. Juliett working altitudes

      A. MAXIMUM NUMBER OF AIRCRAFT - The pattern will be limited to a
maximum of six aircraft. The maximum number may be reduced at the discretion
of the tower supervisor for traffic, weather or other factors.

       B.   INITIALS.

            (1) Runways 13 and 17 - The Yorktown road bridge crossing the Oso
River.

            (2) Runways 31 and 35 - Abeam the Power Plant.

      C. SUCCESSIVE TOUCH-AND-GO’S - After takeoff, climb on runway heading
to a maximum altitude of 500 ft MSL. When cleared by tower and at a minimum
of 300 ft MSL, turn downwind and continue climb to pattern altitude.

      D. PPEL(P) - Shall be performed to the pattern side of the runway with
proper interval. Instructor pilots shall request clearance from tower prior
to simulating a PPEL in the pattern.

      E. LAPL(P) - Simulated low altitude power    losses from the pattern to
an unprepared surface shall not be made over the   Flour Bluff residential area
and will be waved off no lower than 500 ft AGL.    Simulated low altitude power
loses in the pattern to the duty runway shall be   flown to a low approach
only.

WARNING:    LAPL(P)’S TO AN OFF DUTY RUNWAY ARE PROHIBITED WITH OTHER AIRCRAFT
            IN THE PATTERN.

      F. CLOSED TRAFFIC OPERATIONS - Tower has the option of granting a
blanket clearance for all downwind turns at the pilot’s discretion. The
pilot will make a gear call each pass at the 180 or low key. Do not initiate
a climb to low key within the pattern without Tower approval.

      G. DELTA PATTERN (EMERGENCY ORBIT) - The delta pattern will conform to
the traffic flow for the runway in use at 2000 ft MSL. Climbs and descents
to/from the delta pattern will be at the direction of the Tower.

      H. WAVE-OFFS – Wave-offs will be made to the pattern side of the
active runway at 500 ft MSL, unless otherwise directed by Tower.

      I. TRAFFIC PATTERN CONFLICTS - Aircraft will remain south of the Flour
Bluff Water Tower to avoid conflicts with NAS Corpus Christi traffic.

607.   DEPARTURE PROCEDURES.

701. GENERAL. Cabaniss is a lighted airport for VFR touch and go practice
by tenant squadrons of NAS Corpus Christi and is primarily used by T-44
aircraft. Solo touch-and-go operations are only authorized when a qualified
Runway Duty Officer (RDO) and Crash Crew are on station. Pilots operating at
Cabaniss shall comply with all applicable course rules.

702. LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION. Cabaniss is located eight miles west of Navy
Corpus Christi Airport and five miles southeast of Corpus International.
Airfield coordinates are 27 degrees, 42 minutes North and 97 degrees, 26
minutes West. Field elevation is 30 ft MSL. The landing area consists of two
paved runways (PLATE 7-1).

    B.     DISPLACED THRESHOLD - The threshold of Runway 17 is displaced 500 ft.

    C. FIELD LIGHTING - Both runways are equipped with variable intensity
lights. There are no taxi lights available at Cabaniss. Use of taxiways at
night is prohibited due to the lack of adequate lighting. Obstructions are
marked with red lights.

    D.     TAXI PROCEDURES.
           (1) Taxi and parking only on approved taxiways (PLATE 7-1).

        (2) Taxi not authorized at night, full stops must use back taxi
procedures to position for takeoff.

704. HOURS OF OPERATION. Normal hours (all times local) of operation are
Monday through Thursday from 0730 to 2300 (0730 to 2200 local DST), Friday
0730-2000. Summer hours may be extended Monday-Friday till 2400. Closed all
federal holidays.

705.     ARRIVAL PROCEDURES.

NOTE:    “31 AIRSPACE” OPERATIONS. WHEN CORPUS INTERNATIONAL IS USING RUNWAY
         1 AS THE PRIMARY RUNWAY, SUNRISE TRANSITIONS WILL BE LIMITED TO A ONE-
         N/ONE-OUT OPERATION. AIRCRAFT ENROUTE FROM NAS CORPUS CHRISTI TO



                                                 7-1
NOTE:   CABANISS SHALL MAINTAIN 1000 FT MSL TO PT. SUNRISE AND MUST THEN
        DESCEND TO 800 FT MSL IN THE CABANISS AREA.

      A. IFR – Entry procedures will be via Cabaniss coded flight plan in
current Letter of Agreement with Corpus Approach.

        B.   VFR - All Pt. Sunrise arrivals into Cabaniss will squawk company
code.

          (1) From NAS Corpus Christi - Follow the route depicted on PLATE 2-
2 and described in paragraph 204.B.3 of this instruction. Contact Cabaniss
Tower at Pt. Sunrise. Traffic pattern entry is normally made from an
overhead approach via a 1500 ft MSL clockwise 2 NM (T-44 - one wingtip
distance from center of airport) traffic circle to intercept an initial point
45 degrees from the active runway centerline. From the initial point,
descend to 1000 ft MSL for pattern sequencing as directed by tower. The
overhead maneuver is flown at 1000 ft MSL offset from the runway centerline
toward the pattern side. Descent to pattern altitude, 800 ft MSL, is
authorized when established downwind.

NOTE:   RUNWAYS 13 AND 17 INITIAL IS DEFINED AS THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE
        LANDFILL WITHIN 2 NM OF THE AIRFIELD, START DESCENT TO 1000 FT MSL AT
        THIS POINT TO AVOID CORPUS INTERNATIONAL AIRSPACE AND TRAFFIC.

          (2) From Corpus International – Tower-to-Tower
coordination/approval is required.   Arriving aircraft climb to 1500 ft MSL
prior to the initial. Enter a 2 NM (T-44 - one wingtip distance) clockwise
traffic circle for all runways. A two mile straight-in for the overhead to
Runway 13 may be requested at 1000 ft MSL.

          (3) From North and Central Seagull - Authorization to transition
from Shamrock to Cabaniss is based on traffic at NAS Corpus Christi. Make a
normal homefield entry (see Chapter 3) and request Sunrise Transition from
NAS Corpus Christi Tower. When transition is approved by tower, climb to
1500 ft MSL (or as assigned) and proceed to Pt. Sunrise.

706.   TRAFFIC PATTERNS. Traffic patterns are depicted on PLATES 7-3 and
7-4. Tower personnel may modify the normal pattern to avoid conflicts with
Corpus International traffic.

      A. OVERHEAD APPROACH - The break is flown at 1000 ft MSL offset from
the runway centerline toward the pattern side. Descend to 800 ft MSL pattern
altitude when established on downwind.

      B. SUCCESSIVE TOUCH AND GO’S - Following the approach or landing,
commence a climb straight ahead to a maximum altitude of 500 ft MSL. When
cleared by the tower and at a minimum altitude of 300 ft MSL, turn downwind
and climb to pattern altitude.

          (1) Pattern Altitude - Pattern altitude is 800 ft MSL.

         (2) Maximum Aircraft - The pattern is limited to a maximum of five
aircraft. The maximum number may be reduced at the discretion of the tower
supervisor for traffic, weather or other factors.

         (3) Closed Traffic Operations. If only one aircraft is in the
pattern, tower has the option of granting closed traffic approval for all
climbs and turns to the downwind at the pilot’s discretion. The only call
required is the gear call at the 180.

          (4) PPEL’s and LAPL(P)’s at Cabaniss are prohibited.

         (5) Delta Pattern - The delta pattern conforms to the traffic flow
for the runway in use at 2000 ft MSL.

         (6) Wave-off’s – Wave-off’s are made to the pattern side of the
active runway at 500 ft MSL unless otherwise directed by tower. Do not
overtake other touch-and-go aircraft.

      C. TRAFFIC PATTERN CONFLICTS – Traffic conflicts can occur when Corpus
International is landing Runway 31 or 35. Aircraft operating west and
northwest will remain east of OSO Creek within 2 NM (T-44 - one wingtip
distance) from geographic center of Cabaniss. When Runway 35 is active at
Cabaniss and an aircraft is executing the LOC 31 or RNAV (GPS) 31 to Corpus
International, Cabaniss Tower will instruct aircraft to fly a right hand
pattern until the instrument traffic is clear of Cabaniss airspace.

NOTE:   TW-4 AIRCRAFT SHOULD AVOID FLYING LOC 31 OR RNAV GPS/31 APPROACHES AT
        CORPUS INTERNATIONAL WHEN CABANISS IS ACTIVE.

707.    DEPARTURE PROCEDURES.

      A. IFR - The tower will obtain clearances from Corpus Approach when a
pilot advises they are ready to depart Cabaniss area.

      B. VFR - Climb on runway heading to 500 ft MSL prior to commencing a
turn. When cleared, turn in the appropriate direction and follow the
departure route depicted on the applicable plate and described in the
following:

          (1) To NAS Corpus Christi via Point Sunrise – Request a Sunrise
Transition with Cabaniss Tower. When approved, maintain 500 ft MSL until
clear of the traffic pattern, climb to 1000 ft MSL and proceed direct to Pt.

                                   CHAPTER 8

                               NALF ORANGE GROVE

801. GENERAL. NALF Orange Grove is the primary outlying field for T-45
aircraft and is operated by NAS Kingsville. It is available for daytime
touch-and-go landing practice by TRAWING FOUR aircraft except when field
carrier landing practice (FCLP) is in effect. During periods of intense FCLP
training, Orange Grove may change its hours of operations. Contact Orange
Grove operations at 6-6140 or 6-6180 with any questions. All aircraft shall
comply with NASKINSINST 3710.1 series and MOA.

802. LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION. NALF Orange Grove is in class D airspace and
is located approximately 27 miles northwest of NAS Kingsville and 33 miles
west of Corpus Christi International Airport. Field elevation is 257 ft MSL.
The landing area consists of two paved runways. NOG TACAN (63X) is located on
the field.

803. RUNWAYS. All runways are equipped with two sets of arresting gear: the
short field gear is 1500 ft from the approach end of each runway and the long
field gear is located 100 ft into the overrun on each runway. (PLATE 8-1)
Refer to the appropriate NATOPS manual for landing and taxi restrictions over
arresting gear cables. Standard airport lighting is available. An Optical
Landing System (OLS) is usually located at the approach end of the duty
runway.

    A.    DIMENSIONS.

              Runway            Length                 Width
              01/19             8000'                  200'
              13/31             8000'                  200'

CAUTION:    ARRESTING GEAR MAY BE RIGGED.

NOTE:    IF WIND LIMITS AND WORKLOAD PERMIT, THE ARRESTING GEAR MAY BE
         DERIGGED, BUT CAUTION IS ADVISED. COORDINATE WITH ORANGE GROVE TOWER
         AS NEEDED.

804.    ARRIVAL PROCEDURES.

      A. Arrivals to NALF Orange Grove may be made from the Juliett or Delta
area IAW paragraphs 512C1 & 515B2. Check out with Kingsville Approach and
contact Orange Grove Tower and advise intentions.

      B. Traffic pattern entry is normally made from an overhead approach
via a 1300 ft MSL 5 NM straight in initial. From the initial point (five
miles on the 160 radial for runway 31), proceed inbound at 1300 ft feet until
two miles, turn to intercept extended centerline. The break maneuver is
flown at 1300 ft MSL offset from the runway centerline toward the pattern
side, or as directed by tower. Descend to pattern altitude, when established
downwind.

CAUTION:    WHEN OPERATING AT ORANGE GROVE, BE ESPECIALLY ALERT FOR T-45
            AIRCRAFT IN THE LANDING PATTERN. T-45s OFTEN USE A LOWER ALTITUDE
            ON DOWNWIND AND MAY PERFORM ZOOM CLIMBS TO 3000 FT MSL OR HIGHER
            FOR ENGINE OUT TRAINING.




                                         8-1
      C. T-34 PPEL entry may be authorized on a case by case basis depending
on pattern load. Direction of ELP is at the discretion of the tower.

805. TRAFFIC PATTERN. The normal pattern for all runways is left hand
traffic. Deviations may be approved by tower.

      A. SUCCESSIVE TOUCH-AND=GO’S - After takeoff, climb on runway heading.
When cleared by tower and at a minimum of 500 ft MSL, turn downwind and climb
to pattern altitude. Do not exceed 750 ft MSL upwind.

       B.   PATTERN ALTITUDE - 1000 ft MSL.

      C. CLOSED TRAFFIC OPERATIONS - NOG Tower has the option of granting
blanket approval for climbs and downwind turns at the pilot’s discretion with
proper interval. Report the gear each pass. A separate request to tower
shall be made for a turn to low key.

      D. DELTA PATTERN (EMERGENCY ORBIT) - If entry into the delta pattern
is required, request pattern direction and altitude from tower.

      E. WAVE-OFFS – Wave-offs will be made to the pattern side of the
active runway. Remain at 750 ft MSL until cleared to turn downwind.

      F. PPEL (P)’s shall be performed to the pattern side with proper
interval. Instructor pilots shall request clearance from tower prior to
simulating a PPEL in the pattern.

      G. LAPL(P) - Simulated low altitude power losses from the pattern to
an unprepared surface shall be waved off no lower than 300 ft AGL (550 ft
MSL). Simulated low altitude power losses in the pattern to the duty runway
may be flown to a landing or touch and go in accordance with local SOP. If
returning to the pattern, aircraft will re-enter using standard entry
procedures as described in paragraph 804 or as coordinated with the tower.

       H.   TC-12 CLOSED FIELD OPERATIONS – Comply with current MOA.

806.   DEPARTURE PROCEDURES.

      A. ALL RUNWAYS - Maintain runway heading until passing 2000 ft MSL or
four miles. Refer to paragraph 512 for Juliett area operating procedures.

                                  CHAPTER 9

                            ARANSAS COUNTY AIRPORT

901. GENERAL. Aransas County airport is an uncontrolled airport that has
many regular civilian users including corporate helicopter services. The
landing pattern is open to TW-4 squadrons during hours specified by the
Commodore. Pilots operating at this airport will exercise caution and
maintain a continuous lookout for civilian aircraft. When a potential
traffic conflict exists between civilian and military aircraft, the military
aircraft will give way. The “see and avoid” concept is paramount while
operating at Aransas County airport.

902. LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION. Aransas County airport is located 28 miles
northeast of NAS Corpus Christi on the Live Oak Peninsula, which separates
Copano Bay from the Intercoastal Waterway. The landing pattern is open for
military operations provided a qualified Runway Duty Officer (RDO) is in
place. The requirement for a RDO is waived for multi-engine pilot training
flights and T-34 IP/IP or IP/IUT flights. The airport is served by UNICOM.
Field elevation is 25 ft MSL. The landing area consists of two paved
runways.

903.    DIMENSIONS.

              Runway          Length                  Width
              14/32           5600'                   150'
              18/36           4500'                   150'

904. TAXI AND RUN-UP. Taxi movements are uncontrolled. Pilots will request
airport advisories on UNICOM and taxi at their own discretion. There are no
designated aircraft run-up areas. Pilots in command will use proper
judgment, considering wind and runway in use, to ensure that an adequate
amount of pavement remains in front of the aircraft prior to commencing a
run-up.

NOTE:   PRIOR TO TAXIING ONTO ANY RUNWAY, ENSURE THE APPROACH AND LANDING
        AREAS ARE CLEAR.

905. ARRIVAL PROCEDURES. When the landing pattern is scheduled to be open,
practice instrument approaches for TW-4 aircraft are not authorized. Obtain
airport advisories on UNICOM prior to commencing an entry to the airport.
Determine how many aircraft are using the airport to prevent exceeding the
maximum pattern allowance.

      A. T-34 - Arrivals to Aransas County airport will be from North
Mustang or the Delta areas. Check out with Corpus Approach, then obtain
airport advisories on UNICOM and check in with the RDO (CH 20). Follow the
arrival routes depicted on PLATE 9-1 and described below. Traffic pattern
entry is normally made from an overhead approach but may also be accomplished
from a PPEL. Aircraft inbound to the entry point will cross the Intracoastal
Waterway at 2500 ft MSL or above.    T-34’s will remain with Corpus Approach
after sunset.

          (1) Runways 14 and 36 - Entry is from Pt. Bravo. Maintain 2500 ft
MSL or above until over the mainland south of the water tower south of
Rockport, then descend to 1000 ft MSL. Overhead Pt. Bravo, turn to 035
degrees for runway 14 or 070 degrees for runway 36. Turn inbound to
intercept the extended runway centerline for the overhead. The overhead


                                       9-1
maneuver and patterns for these runways are to the left. Report Pt. Bravo
inbound to the RDO. Position the aircraft to allow 1/2 mile straight-in for
the overhead. The overhead maneuver is flown at 1000 ft MSL, 170 KIAS offset
1/4 wingtip distance from the runway centerline toward the pattern side of
the runway.

NOTE:   ALL LANDINGS ON RUNWAY 14 SHOULD BE EXECUTED AS CLOSE TO THE NUMBERS
        AS POSSIBLE FOR SAFETY. THE APPROACH TO RUNWAY 32 SHOULD BE EXECUTED
        TO LAND ON THE FIXED DISTANCE MARKERS, LOCATED 1000 FT FROM THE
        APPROACH END (4600 FT WILL REMAIN).

          (2) Runways 18 and 32 - Entry is from Nine-Mile Point. the eastern
most peninsula that extends into the Intracoastal Waterway, located
approximately 3 NM southeast of the airport. Approximately 2 NM south of
Nine Mile Point, descend to 1000 ft MSL and pass one wing tip distance east
of Nine Mile Point. Turn to 350 degrees (remain clear of Fulton) to
intercept the extended runway centerline. Turn inbound for the overhead.
The patterns for these runways are right hand pattern. Report Nine Mile
Point inbound to the RDO. Position the aircraft to allow 1/2 mile straight-
in for the overhead maneuver. The overhead maneuver is flown at 1000 ft MSL,
170 KIAS offset 1/4 wingtip distance from the runway centerline toward the
pattern side of the runway.

          (3) PPEL entry is authorized for all runways provided no more than
two aircraft (including civilian) are currently using the traffic pattern.
The maneuver must conform to the traffic patterns depicted on PLATE 9-1.
Aircraft executing a simulated emergency must report “High Key” and all
aircraft in the pattern and the RDO must acknowledge this call, otherwise the
PPEL aircraft shall return to High Key for re-entry. Traffic in the pattern
will yield the right-of-way to the aircraft descending to Low Key.

      B. TC-12/T-44 – Operations are PROHIBITED during T-34 touch-and-go
operations.

      C. Arrivals to Aransas County airport are normally made from an
instrument approach procedure.

906. TRAFFIC PATTERNS. Traffic patterns are depicted on PLATE 9-1.
Advisory radio calls shall be made when turning crosswind, downwind, and base
leg. No clearance to land will be issued and RDO calls are advisory only.

        A.   STANDARD PATTERN OPERATIONS.

         (1) Successive Touch-and-Go’s - After takeoff, climb on runway
heading to 500 ft MSL. With interval and at a minimum altitude of 300 ft
MSL, turn downwind and climb to pattern altitude.

             (2) Pattern Altitude - 800 ft MSL.

             (3) Maximum Aircraft - Five to include civilian and military
aircraft.

         (4) Wave-off’s – Wave-off’s shall be made to the pattern side of the
active runway at 500 ft MSL until abeam the upwind numbers, then proceed as
above.




                                         9-2
         (5) Traffic Pattern conflicts - Give way to civilian aircraft when
necessary. The field is also used for instrument approaches. IFR traffic
may be encountered inbound to any runway.

      B. T-34 touch and go/simulated emergency practice without an RDO is
PROHIBITED. The airport may be used for PPEL/HAPL/LAPL’s practice or
instrument approaches during these periods. PPELs/HAPLs/LAPLs shall be flown
to a low approach ONLY.

NOTE:   T-34 TORCH AND GO/SIMULATED EMERGENCY PRACTICE WIHTOUT A RDO IS
        PERMITTED FOR IP/IP OR IP/IUT FLIGHTS.

907. DEPARTURE PROCEDURES. Climb on runway heading to 500 ft MSL prior to
commencing a turn. Follow the appropriate departure route depicted on PLATES
9-2 and 9-3 and described below. Advisory radio calls will be made when
departing the pattern.

      A. RUNWAYS 18 AND 32 - Turn right, maintain 500 ft MSL, and proceed
northbound to pass one wingtip distance abeam Redfish Point. Clear of the
traffic pattern; commence climb and turn east to reach 1500 ft MSL, 170 KIAS
at the LBJ Causeway. Passing the causeway, turn south along the Intracoastal
Waterway. Report clear with UNICOM when abeam Nine Mile Point.

      B. RUNWAY 14 - Depart off the 180, descend to 500 ft MSL and proceed
northbound to pass one wingtip distance abeam Redfish Point. Commence climb
and turn east to reach 1500 ft MSL, 170 KIAS at the LBJ Causeway. Passing
the causeway, turn south along the Intracoastal Waterway. Report clear when
abeam Nine Mile Point.

      C. RUNWAY 36 - Maintain runway heading, 500 ft MSL. Abeam Redfish
Point turn east and climb to 1500 ft MSL, 170 KIAS. Turn south once
established over the Intracoastal Waterway. Report clear abeam Nine-Mile
Point.

      D. LAPL(P) - Simulated low altitude power loses in the pattern to the
duty runway shall be flown to a low approach only. Simulated low altitude
power losses from the pattern to an unprepared surface will not be made over
any residential areas and will be waved off no lower than 500 ft AGL. After
conducting a LAPL(P) from the pattern to an unprepared surface, depart the
pattern via course rules.

WARNING:   LAPL(P)’S TO AN OFF DUTY RUNWAY ARE PROHIBITED.

908.    HOME FIELD RECOVERY/WORKING AREA REENTRY PROCEDURES.

      A. RETURNING TO NAS CORPUS CHRISTI - Establish the aircraft at 1500 ft
MSL and 170 KIAS on a southerly track over the Intracoastal Waterway.
Contact Corpus Approach (CH 8) and proceed direct to Pt. Shamrock. Over the
Aransas Pass Causeway descend to 1000 ft MSL and 170 KIAS. Follow NAS Corpus
Christi arrival procedures in paragraph 303.

      B. RETURNING TO MUSTANG AREAS - Contact Corpus Approach    (CH 17) to
request a working area or if planning to perform low work (HAPL/LAPL’s).

909. LOST COMMUNICATION PROCEDURES. Two-way radio communications are
required in the touch-and-go pattern. Aircraft with radio failure will
depart the pattern using normal departure procedures. If the RDO experiences
radio failure, touch-and-go landing pattern operations at the field will be
discontinued and aircraft will depart the pattern using normal procedures.
