First of all, congrats on getting selected to attend
the T-6A Pilot Instructor Training. For previous MWS folks, the next four
months are going to be challenging. Challenging in that the training and
the atmosphere is like a mini-UPT and that you're going to be treated like a UPT
student. For future FAIPs, this course is going to seem like a welcome
change from the rigors of UPT and you will finally get treated like an adult.
For everyone in general, this program is an awesome course and extremely
rewarding. You'll learn a lot about teaching a kid fresh off the street
how to fly. All of the PIT instructors are top-notch and many have spent a
majority of their career in AETC. Try to learn as much as you can from
them and take their techniques and put it in your back of tricks. On a
side note, if you're a prior C-17A pilot like myself, get ready to unlearn all
the automation and backside flying. I hope it won't be as painful for you
as it was for me.
most of you are on TDY-enroute orders. If you choose to bring your family
with you, I have included some information on apartments that are conveniently
located near Randolph AFB. I highly recommend setting up a partial
shipment of house-hold goods when you PCS since furnished apartments in close
proximity to the base are hard to find. Also call the housing office for
advice on where to live.
When I found out that I was going to Moody AFB via
PIT, I spent hours googling for any bit of information on PIT.
Surprisingly, there is nothing on the web which is why I decided to build this
section. The purpose of this section is to provide future UPT instructor
pilots with the
necessary information to prepare for and succeed at PIT. Use the info
available in the following pages to get familiar with what is expected of you at Randolph AFB.
If you have any
suggestions or have information that could help others, please send it to
It is only through your help that I can keep this section updated. Thanks for
visiting T6Driver.Com and welcome to AETC. You're
gonna love the T-6A!
