Abstract : Vance AFB T-6 and T-37 aircrews use Kegelman Auxiliary Field (Kegelman AUX), a sub-installation of the Base, for traffic pattern training to reduce traffic pattern congestion at Vance AFB caused by four aircraft types operating at a single airfield. T-1 aircrews at Vance AFB currently use Kegelman AUX for emergency operations. The condition of the runway at Kegelman AUX has deteriorated and extensive repairs are necessary, requiring closure of the runway. Thus, Vance AFB has a need for another airfield at which these aircraft could conduct traffic pattern training while Kegelman AUX is closed for repairs. The 71 FTW will not conduct T-1, T-6, and T-37 training at the Perry Municipal Airport (PMA). Kegelman AUX will not be available because it will be closed for repair. Vance AFB will conduct T-6 and T-37 traffic pattern training and T-1 tactical approach training at the Base or other outlying municipal airports on a limited basis, which will impose severe limitations to conducting Joint Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training (JSUPT), and could result in a reduction in the number of sorties flown due to traffic pattern saturation. Additionally, the JSUPT program will forfeit training efficiencies because of the increased travel times to these other airfields.
