Is this going to be one of those “too big to fail” programs where there is downward pressure to pass these students along?

Yes.

Wait, you’re serious? How many T-6 hours? Skipping T-38s and IFF? This can’t be real.

60-100 T-6 hours, I don't know this dude's numbers specifically. It's real.

Do these guys get extended f-16 syllabi or do they operate under the same one as normal UPT grads? 

My money is on the abbreviated syllabus that ends with an FEB at sometime before BFM-5.

They're in a program that's evaluating their ability to do a normal b course. Only admin flying, no grades, no bust vs. pass, etc. If the IPs think they could hack a normal b course syllabus they'll go, else they go back to phase 3 and from there it's standard syllabus (e.g. further emphasis on producing numbers and not quality pilots). As long as this is allowed to be an objective experiment, it's not a bad thing. But obviously it becomes bad if they are forced along by leadership to make the experiment a "success."

Is this intended to eventually replace UPT completely? If so, do they have a timeline for implementation if it is successful?

Where do they go next?

 

Back to UPT.

Possibly to viper b course if it's determined they're likely to pass. If not, they'll go to normal phase 3 UPT (38s).

Should be Phase 3 GPT - they already have wings.

If they need T-38 training they are going to the T-38 Transition course at Randolph then IFF at Randolph.
