Test Pilot School concludes first UAV short course


The U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School graduated the first of hopefully be many Unmanned Air Vehicle flight test short courses May 20 during a ceremony in the school's main auditorium.

Seven lieutenants, all from Edwards, attended the ceremony.

This course was a Team Edwards project with course development and instructor representation coming from the 412th Test Wing's Engineering Directorate Engineer Development Office and technical experts, as well as the 452nd flight test squadron and various TPS instructors, said John Minor, TPS technical director.

"We called upon Air Force Flight Test Center expertise wherever it existed," Mr. Minor said. "I am pleased that all the organizations and personnel we tasked for support responded in such a positive manner - they really came through to produce an outstanding course."
