Correct Answer: C TOC & Rally Points (RP), Aircraft Specific Checks & Services Required (CSR), Terrain Briefing The operational period briefing covers the time from start-up to shutdown. This includes everything from the pre-mission brief to the final checklists and aircraft status checks.
It is important to ensure that all members of the team are on the same page so that everyone understands their role in the mission. This briefing should also include a review of the Rules of Engagement (ROE) and any other relevant information, such as coordination with other units or potential hazards. Pilots and aircrew also need a thorough terrain briefing, so they can safely navigate the area and avoid any potential threats. By taking the time to review this information with the aircrew, ground support teams can ensure a successful mission.
