Forward Arming Refueling Point (FARP) Survey™ Course
A course covering all aspects of tactical and administrative Forward Arming Refueling Point (FARP) surveying and site certification, i.e. Temporary or Permanent, including STANEVAL or Loadmaster review procedures, and survey package submission to the final approving authority. Surveyors will understand how to implement the ‘highest’ level of safety standards when evaluating potential hazards to aircraft, personnel and/or equipment, how to properly assess a potential site for usage, environmental impact analysis, emergency egress planning and provide recommendations based on unit or mission requirements.
Note: Course instruction also includes an introduction to sister service and other than U.S. controlled FARP sites standards and procedures.
Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) & Magnetic Ruler
An intensive course focused on building a complete understanding of the Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP), Magnetic Ruler utilized for analysis during Assault Zone Survey and Operations. The course includes Mission Planning Exercises, Feature Break-Out Identification, Prioritization of Test Locations, DCP Index to CBR equivalent calculations, Manual DCP Plotting, Layer Breaking, and complex aircraft passes to cycle correlation techniques. This course is an absolute necessity for anyone requiring the education, knowledge, and background experience needed to make In-The-Field critical decisions for Go, and No-Go, criteria required to land Large and Heavy aircraft on Unprepared and Semi-Prepared surfaces.
Paved Surface Evaluation & PCASE Course
An intensive course focused on the evaluation & analysis process for paved surface airfields and Landing Zones, introduction to the Aircraft Classification Number/Pavement Classification Number system, surface distresses & Pavement Condition Index reporting, determinations of shearing strength readings, allowable gross load and pass evaluations via advanced usage of the Pavement-Transportation Computer Assisted Structural Engineering (PCASE) software. This course is an absolute necessity for anyone requiring the education, knowledge, and background experience needed to make In-The-Field critical decisions for Go, and No-Go criteria required to land Large and Heavy aircraft on Paved surfaces.
