English term or phrase:to format
For easier, safer recovery, it is preferable for a helicopter to carry out any winching operation into wind. For ease of operation, the vessel should be underway and steering 20 to 30 degrees to port or starboard off the relative wind line. This will allow the aircraft to format on the vessel, giving the pilot and crew better visibility, and ensuring any downwash will lie behind the vessel and aircraft.
