What to Bring
ASTC Whidbey Island strongly encourages FLIGHT SUITS as the uniform of the day for all aviation personnel. This is due to the physical and environmental demands of the survival training. Class1 Refresher Aviators are strongly encouraged to bring their own NVG capable TACAIR helmet and MBU series O2 mask for Dynamic Hypoxia and Parachute Descent Training.
Water Survival Students must bring a (modest) swim suit or shorts and a towel. It is highly recommended that students bring a spare t-shirt and socks, if preferred, to be worn with pool issue flight equipment. Students who wear contact lenses are encouraged to bring a contact lens kit for removal of lenses during water training. Swim goggles are not authorized for any water testing evaluation.
PLEASE BE AT THE ASTC No Later than 0715 for Medical Screening and Record Checks. All aviation personnel reporting for Naval Aviation Survival Training shall report with their OPNAV 3760/32 NATOPS Training Jacket that includes a current BUMED 6410/2 (Up Chit) Aeromedical Clearance Notice. All Physiology Classes begin at 0730 sharp, unless otherwise directed. Late arrival may be turned away or student seats re-assigned to stand-bys.
All prospective indoctrination students requesting an initial (INDOC) training quota must submit their Page 13 with proof of 3rd Class Swim Qualification (if not USN) and Medical Clearance (Up-Chit) with their request.
NOTE! Please be on time. Students reporting AFTER the start time of classes may not be eligible to complete a full qualification on that day, and will have to reschedule and return on another day to make up missing elements.
