  1. Civilian T-6 IPs?

    Any extra manpower on the ip side will help. At this point it's a giant game of whack-a-mole though, because maintainence is hanging in by a thread and if production increases any significant amount then the lack of experienced and specialized maintainers will make the process come to a screeching slow down.
  2. T-6s Grounded; More OBOGS Issues

    That is interesting, but also curious as to why it seems it's mostly Vance (plus one at Pensacola recently?)

  4. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    There are 5 "permanent" staff and 15 ips selected from the UPT bases+PIT. IPs are desired to be 11f, 38-trained faips, or anyone 4ship qual. The ips will be there tdy for 6 months. It was unclear how the studs would be selected, but there was special emphasis that if the program failed or they washed out of any phase of training they would have the opportunity to start over in classic UPT.
  5. F-16 Students skip Phase III

    According to the BBP and info we received today when they were soliciting volunteers for IPs, the 15 officers would be treated as regular upt studs except for their going to B course following graduation. If they fail out then they go into regular UPT at a point comensurate with their phase of training. For the enlisted guys it specifically said something along the lines of 'to measure the liklihood of success and provide a professional experience' or something of that sorts. I interpreted it to mean they wouldnt actually get wings at the end, or wouldnt necessarily go direct to a follow on RPA and still have to go through 18x training- just guessing on this part.
