Safety procedures, according to Gonzalez, are taught from day one. Crews are given frequent briefs and are tested prior to becoming a crew chief on the Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization, or NATOPS, a guideline that prescribes general flight and operating instructions for all U.S. naval aircraft and related activities. Gonzalez said recertification is required and inadequate familiarization with the NATOPS would result in not being allowed to conduct flight operations.
