What are the actions for loss of contact IMC?
- Wingman is to: Alter heading 30 degrees away from the leader and call lost contact
- Maintain the heading for 30s.
- Lost contact in a turn towards wingman: leader is to roll wings level.
- Turn away from the wingman: wingman roll wings level.
- Leader is to:
- Arrange altitude seperation of at least 500ft
- Give the wingman instructions to ensure seperation is maintained until join up can be affected (VMC)
