Before flying a search pattern, what information do you need from the IC before flying the mission and pattern? 

Thank you

Are you a MP?

Its a long list, to be divided up and overlap between you and the MO and MS:

  • What are you looking for? Lost person, downed plane?
  • What area is to be searched on your sortie? Coords, etc.
  • What type of search pattern should you fly?
  • A weather briefing is always nice.
  • A safety and sortie plan meeting with your MO and MS would be a good thing.
  • 50 other items .....

Thank you etodd.  It was a badly worded question on my part.  I have done some research and no further response is necessary,
