FAIP shortcut stands as First Assignment Instructor Pilot – selected pilots from top-half of their class, at the end of their training at Sheppard Air Force Base, TX, as their first assignment are being nominated as Instructor Pilots to train new generation of students. Thanks to amazing support from 80th Flying Training Wing we had a unique opportunity to look closer at this topic and accompany FAIP pilots during their regular duties to highlight how FAIPs at ENJJPT (currently from the U.S., Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Belgium, and Denmark) are in a unique position to strengthen NATO partnerships as they train students together for future collaboration in next generation aircraft. We’ve got also unique opportunity to take aerial pictures of T-38 and T-6 in heritage and FAIP paint scheme. Full report and more photos can be found here after press publications!
