JHC Section 4: Training and Operation


Section 4: Training and Operation

4-1: Overview
The 4th Infantry Brigade and its members are dedicated to making our unit the most professional, yet fun, Arma 3 MilSim environment within Europe. To that end, we run regular training at all levels that members are able to, or are expected to attend. This Section should outline to all members their requirements when it comes to Training and Operations with Joint Helicopter Command.

4-2: Scheduled Squadron Training

All squadrons are expected to hold trainings. All members are expected to either attend or post a Leave of Absence (LOA) prior to the commencement of such training.

Squadron Trainings are a mandatory event for all JHC members that are within that Squadrons ORBAT. If a member is unable to attend, they are to post a Leave of Absence(LOA) in the appropriate thread on the forums.

Training must be no shorter than an hour in length and no longer than two hours and 30 minutes. While members may voluntarily remain for training longer, no member will be required to attend training longer than two hours.

Due to the very busy nature of Joint Helicopter Commands role during deployments, squadron trainings will usually only be held in Home Rotations.

This training must be logged in an individual's flight log.

4-3: Non-Mandatory Training

Any section, platoon or detachment may conduct non-mandatory training at any time. This training falls outside of the scheduled weekly training or operation nights during Home Rotation. It can consist of any amount of members of a section, platoon or detachment gathering in TeamSpeak, on our training server or even on a public server, so long as it can be shown that the activity benefits training and development of those involved in this event.

For example; practising a Section Attack on an Invade and Annex or Capture the Island server would be beneficial. Playing as a Section on Day-Z or Breaking Point type servers would not.

All non-mandatory training conducted must be logged on an individual's flight log.

4-4: Official Operations

Official Operations conducted by the 4th Infantry Brigade are mandatory events for all members. Anyone who is unable to attend must post an LOA prior to the event.

At present, all Official Operations for Joint Helicopter Command will be held on Saturdays at 19:30 hours GMT.

It is expected that all members will be on TeamSpeak in their appropriate channels between 15-30 minutes prior to the commencement of Official Operations.

It is expected that all members will be logged into the Operations Server at least 10 minutes prior to the commencement of Official Operations. Further to this, it is expected that members will be appropriately dressed and armed for their upcoming Operation and they will be suitably briefed on the mission to follow.

All official Operations attended must be logged on an individual's flight log.

4-5: Home Rotations

Home Rotation periods are conducted after the end of an operation. It consists of multiple weeks of preparation for the coming operation where the infantry is drilled to topics needed for the specific future operations.

Within home rotation the operations evening is replaced with a JHC wide training session. These training sessions are mandatory for every member within the unit. As such anyone who is unable to attend must post an LOA prior to the event.

4-6: Leave of Absence

A leave of absence is required from all members of the Joint Helicopter Command where they have prior knowledge that they will not be able to attend a mandatory event. Each Squadron has its own area of the forums for Leave of Absences to be posted and the required format.

A leave of absence is not a request, it is the member telling us that they are not going to be in attendance. At the 4th Infantry Brigade we understand that sometimes, people might not feel like playing one evening and submitting a Leave of Absence post, stating this is more than acceptable. However, should we find that members are posting Leave of Absences and stating that they are "going out for a family dinner" but are seen to been playing other games, or, that "my cat has died" for 5 weeks in a row, then that members honesty and integrity will be questioned and that could result in disciplinary action.

Leave of Absences can also be posted to notify Command Staff of expected late attendance. Please estimate where possible the expected time of arrival.

Leave of Absences can be posted for up to 21 days. Anything more than 21 days will constitute an Extended Leave of Absence, which will result in the posting member being removed temporarily from their role to enable others to take their place. Upon the member's return we will try to place you back in the same role that you left, however this cannot always be guaranteed.

Separate Leave of Absences posted that amount to no attendance from the member over a period of 30 days will result in that member being moved provisionally to our reserve element. 

Return to the members previous role after such a move is not guaranteed.
