Let me share my recently started adventure of pilot training in USAF. Obviously, I can share some information but not all.
Last month I started UPT (Undergraduate Pilot Training). It is divided into three phases; phase 1, phase 2 and phase 3. First phase is academics and simulations. Second phase is continuation of academics, simulations while flying T-6. Finally third phase involves flying next airframe that student tracks.
Right now Iím on academic. Hereís a picture of some of our material for phase one and two.
We are going through 400-500 pages a week. In addition, we recently started familiarization with cockpit and procedures. To do so, we use a cockpit simulator.
Every little switch and knob moves and acts same as in real aircraft. Also, cockpit has full force feedback for rudders, throttle and stick.
In this sim we can practice everything from getting into a jet, going through checklist, starting it up, instrument flying and practicing emergencies.
There are three different sims; cockpit, cockpit with monitor and full blown 180 deg view around. Expect more pictures soon.
