New Air Force Pilot Training Study to Include Enlisted Airmen

The Air Force will begin a new pilot training study that aims to upgrade and enhance how future airmen prepare for combat in the cockpit. But in a new twist, the study will gather perspectives from enlisted airmen. Air Education and Training Command said the study, called the pilot training next initiative, will explore how pilots can learn and train faster "by using existing and emerging technologies that can decrease the time and cost of training," but with the same depth of understanding to produce quality pilots, according to a release. The pilot training next class, slated to begin in February, will consist of both enlisted airmen and officers.
