  1. Seriously though. The amount of Beta test groups they had while I was at Randolph was ridiculous, and all of them made worse pilots than the traditional training.
  2. Is it confirmed that IFT is cancelled permanently for RPAs? If so, what does everyone think of this move and what does it mean for the future RPA community? I found IFT very helpful, and so when I see this it makes me wonder if the AF thinks that our community doesn’t deserve the airmanship or basic flying skills that you gain at IFT.
  3. Never realized how much I would miss Nashville and the South East in general until I moved to New Mexico.
  4. You’re totally right. Failure isn’t what I should have used to describe it. I am actually about 3 hrs from my PPL but training and weather kept me from finishing. I think a lot of it is nerves about the job itself. Considering I grew up around manned flight, I only knew that community and lifestyle.
  5. I now this probably isn’t the place for this, but I am at a crossroads. I just graduated MQ-9 training and I can’t help but feel like I am not good enough. I find myself asking “what could I have done differently.” I applied for Pilot back in ROTC and had RPA as my #2 choice with CSO. I can’t help but wonder what could I have done differently to have received a pilot slot and it’s starting to have an impact on my happiness and demeanor. My dad and brother are both pilots, so it was instilled in me at a young age that that’s what I should be. Because I haven’t achieved this I have a feeling that I am a disappointment. My family has shown no interest in my training and didn’t even come to my drop night or graduation and my dad is always making jokes about what I am doing. I have a strong will, but it has recently hit me like a ton of bricks and it’s all I’ve been thinking about. This is more of a vent than anything, but does anyone have any strategies or resources that can allow me to be the best RPA driver I can be and stop beating myself up all the time? Thanks!
  6. We had 5 from my class get sent to March and 1 to Syracuse.
