Moosedog IQT Progress

Post by Zeus » Wed Oct 31, 2018 12:22 am

Cadet/IP: Moosedog / Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-1
Check Ride Date: 29 October 2018
Score: Pass
Debrief: Please join me in welcoming Moosedog to the IQT program. He comes to us with limited BMS MP experience but is a pilot in RL - always nice to add more of those to our ranks. We had a great first flight last night giving Moosedog the opportunity to demonstrate his understanding of our MP SOPs, fly a lot of formation practice and hit the tanker. We even got to do some tac turns which went well. Looking forward to getting up in the air to put some weapons on target - welcome aboard Moosedog!

Ready to go...

Check Ride #: IQT-2
Check Ride Date: 03 November 2018
Score: Pass
Debrief: After some PC repair, Moosedog was back in the air last night for some BVR work. He wasted no time downing two Tu-95s then moving on to our first 2v2 engagement with MiG-23s. It got a little messy when both our missiles tracked the same bandit but we quickly dispatched the leaker. Finally, we moved on to the -29 engagement where both of us has good shots from outside the MAR and it looked like a slam dunk until Moosedog's bandit worked some miraculous evasion (how come I can never do that?) but again we dispatched him quickly. We hit the tanker for some gas and then finished it off with some gun tracking exercises. Nice flight Moosedog!

Check Ride #: IQT-3
Check Ride Date: 12 November 2018
Score: Pass
Debrief: Congrats to Moosedog on passing IQT-3. We made several flights including some Dog Fight time to work some things out - the biggest issues was getting his TrackIR set so that he was able to consistently keep sight of the fight. Once that was figured out we took to the skies once more last night and had a great IQT-3 flight. We sped up to the tanker to grab some gas before entering the CAP area where Moosedog make quick work of the MiGs. We then hit the tanker a second time to grab another quick splash then went hunting way up North where AWACS had reported some flight activity. We found a -29 and -23 and successfully engaged each with the final engagement led by Moosedog doing the merge and setting up his IP for a quick kill shot. Loads of fun! Now on to the ground pounding.

Moosedog on the rejoin with Kunsan in the background (next time we land there will be for graduation).

Check Ride #: IQT-4
Check Ride Date: 14 November 2018
Score: Pass
Debrief: Well, we are just moving right along now. Moosedog and I went up for IQT-4 last night and had another good flight. A couple of mistakes with the arming delays but he knew it the moment it happened which is why we practice and use checklists. He had a nice run on the enemy airbase followed by a nice attack on a column of tanks using Mk20s. We then tanked quickly and headed to the range. For a first time run around the range, Moosedog did quite will with good weapon placement. On to IQT-5!

Quick rejoin after departure...

Check Ride #: IQT-5
Check Ride Date: 25 November 2018
Score: Pass
Debrief: A great night flight and successful IQT-5 flown with Moosedog the other night. He was both quick on the alignment and getting on the boom not to mention flying a smoother ILS approach than his IP! Great work with the HARMs but then we encountered a weird "unable to destroy" SA-3 that I have seen a few times lately. Despite weapons on target the Low Blow would not go down and continued to fire at us as we attempted to knock it out with Mavericks. Again, good hits according tot he ACMI and visually via the TGP but it still survived. On the plus side, this gave Moosedog some good practice at missile evasion. :) One more to go!

Ramped and ready to go...
