Dating air force pilot
At ENJJPT, students learn with, and are taught by, U. Air Force officers and officers from various air forces of our NATO allies.
Student pilots fly the T-6 Texan II mastering contact, instrument, low-level and formation flying.
Unlike traditional pilots who would expect to be wingmen or co-pilots in initial combat mission ready status, the RPA pilots are immediately solo and in charge of their mission upon reaching mission ready status.
They are also thrust straight into actual combat upon reaching mission ready status, so it was essential that AETC trained as many basic skills as possible in the undergraduate training to prepare the RPA pilots for flight in National/International Airspace and readiness to enter the Formal Training Unit for their assigned RPA.
Prospective airlift and tanker pilots are assigned to the airlift/tanker track and train in the T-1 Jayhawk.
Pilot candidates then attend either Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training at Sheppard AFB, Texas, or Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training at Columbus AFB, Mississippi, Laughlin AFB, Texas, or Vance AFB, Oklahoma.
The advanced phase of training utilizes the CSO modified T-1A aircraft and the T-25 Simulator for Electronic Combat.
In this final phase, student training is focused on advanced navigation techniques, radar scope interpretation, the principles of electronic warfare, Crew Resource Management, and the fundamentals of weapons employment.
Flight engineers train at Little Rock AFB, boom operators train at Altus AFB, and loadmasters train at Altus, Little Rock or JBSA-Lackland.
Helicopter and tilt-rotor special mission aviators train at Kirtland AFB, and airborne communications specialists train at Keesler AFB.
