2.Air-Air Missiles: Classroom 101
The first Thing that I would like to stress to all You Pilots is This: Always Train and
Fly in the Expert Avionics Mode.....It is not difficult, but you will have to repeat the
Training Missions, Over and Over until you can Do It , Blindfolded!..and in
you're Sleep..Got That!!..Now Let's Begins.!
The Avionics Mode that I use is the "RWS"Mode.I Beliieve that is is the Best
All Purpose Air-Air Mode on the F-16..First Cycle the "F1" key.till "RWS "Appears in the "Left MFD"or
Better Yet!..hit the "M" key and Bingo You are in "RWS" Mode.with a AIM-120 AMRAAM
Missle Already Loaded and on the RAILS!!.How Much easier can I Make This CLASS.
At this point the Aim-120 radar is Scanning for 20 miles..I like to Increase the RANGE
to 80 Miles, by pressing the F4 Key. The F3 key will decrease range..Don,t Mix them Up!!
.... When you see contacts or Multply Contacts on the "MFD"..Use you're 4-Arrow Keys on
on the Bottom Right Keyboard to move the Cursor over the Target
Blip on the Sceen. Then, We need to DESIGNATE the Target by Pressing the " 0 INS" KEY.,
The TARGET is now LOCKED.! Next We Need to Call AWACS.to find out if the Contact is "F" or
"BANDITS"..To do this just press the "Q" Key then "# 2" KEY...If "Friendly" hit the "DEL" key
to Break that LOCK..Then Move the Cursor to the Next Contact...Once a "BANDITS" is
Identified...YOU CAN FIRE the AIM-120 up to 30 Miles OUT..and Expect a HIT!!!
Ok! Class.That's It For Now!!let's Take Our New FOUNDED INFO out to
our 22 Million Dollar F-16's and SPLASH SOME "BANDITS"..TIll NEXT TIME.!

b.Our Next Lesson Will be the AIM-9P+ 9M SIDEWINDER CLASS.
THANK YOU!!The Old Man.466th FS
