Aero-News: Quote of the Day (09.24.21)

“Flying lessons are expensive and could potentially exclude qualified candidates from becoming pilots in the Air Force due to limited income or lack of opportunities.

Cadets receive free ground and flight training, and an opportunity to gain critical skills and directly improve their competitiveness for pilot selection boards.” Source: Brig. Gen. Brenda Cartier, AETC’s Director of Operations and Communications and the pilot selection process working group’s overall lead, discussing several Air Education and Training Command initiatives to remove barriers for qualified candidates after the Air Force completed their six-month assessment of their Initial Racial Disparity Report.

It’s different then most planes people fly. Once one gets comfortable with the footwork, everything else is ultra simple.”
