Aiming Off for Wind
The effects of wind on the passage of a bullet are:
a. Only a wind blowing across the front at ranges greater than 100 metres will
make the bullet veer considerably. To allow for this, aim off into the wind; the
direction of the wind can be determined by its effect on the face, trees, dust and
smoke. The amount to aim off is determined by the strength of the wind:
(1) A fresh wind has an appreciable effect on bushes and thin branches
of trees and can be distinctly felt on the side of the face. It would cause
range flags to stand about halfway out from the pole.
(2) A strong wind has a noticeable effect on tree tops and lifts dust off
dry ground. Range flags would tend to strain away from their poles.
b. In windy conditions at ranges of greater than 100 metres the following
points of aim relative to the Figure 11 targets should be used for Fresh Wind
(16 km/h) and Strong Wind (32 km/h).
(1) Fresh Wind 200 metres: POA is halfway between the centre and
edge of the target.
(2) Strong Wind 200 metres: POA is the edge of the target.
(3) Fresh Wind 300 metres: POA is the edge of the target.
(4) Strong Wind 300 metres: POA is one target width from the centre
of the target.

Get yourself a representative figure 11 target and get the students to point out the correct point of aim at relevent distancese: see the comment above.

If you are a qualified SAA Instr you should already know this, if not you should not be conducting WHT's. :headbang:

is it not correct that RCOs with SA(B)90 (or any similiar qual) can do WHTs if they completed their course after 2002ish?? Obviously they are not SAA instructors, but i believe they can test WHTs prior to live firing.

Right or wrong?

I had to be SAA instructor before gaining SA(B)90, that was in 2000, it is probably in the back of the PAM can't remember which one, or check with your training wing.

6! Coaches can do WHT but they can't carry out remedial when a chopper fails! Skiller time!

HVM_boy you're talking b*llocks. Where did you hear that? The only people who can conduct WHT are qualified, current, competent SAA (from SCBC) or AA SAA Instructors.

RCOs conduct ranges, SAA instruct and test. Simple.

See AOSP Vol 1, paras 0207 and 0332.

If some of the RCO's ive seen taught WHT's then god we'd be in trouble, didnt do 6 weeks AASAA Course just to be the same as a RMQ RCO.
