Air Force Selects 63 Officers, Civilians For Test Pilot School

Program Graduates Will Earn A Master Of Science In Flight Test Engineering Through Air University

The Air Force has selected 63 primary and alternate students to attend training at the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Naval, British and French test pilot schools, with classes starting next summer.

The selection board met in July and considered total force officer and civilian candidates for test pilot, test combat systems officer, test remotely piloted aircraft pilot and flight test engineer.

“Test pilot school ensures Air Force mission dominance by training highly qualified officers and civilians to lead and conduct full-spectrum testing and evaluation of aerospace weapons systems,” said Maj. Daniel Kimball, assignments officer at the Air Force’s Personnel Center. “Also, by engaging in exchange programs with the Naval Test Pilot School and our allies, we develop stronger joint and international relationships.”
 
The TPS graduates will have a profound strategic impact on the development of future combat capabilities, Kimball added.

The USAF TPS trains pilots, combat systems officers and engineers to develop, test and evaluate the newest aircraft and weapons systems. In addition, the school conducts exchange programs with the U.S. Naval, British and French test pilot schools to train fixed and rotary wing pilots and flight test engineers. Program graduates will earn a master of science in flight test engineering through Air University.
