  3. Why is the 3/9 line important?
    number 2 must remain behind the 3/9 line
  4. lead pursuit
    placing your velocity vector in front of number 1
  5. Pure pursuit
    placing your velocity vector on number 1
  6. Lag pusuit
    placing your velocity vector behind number 1
  7. Effects of lead, pure and lag pursuit
  8. line of sight (LOS)

  10. Pitchout spacing
    • 2-3 seconds = 1000-1500' spacing
    • 5 seconds = 3000' spacing
  11. what are the steps for a pitchout?
    • signal for a pitchout
