Sidestep IQT Progress

Post by Zeus » Mon Nov 26, 2018 11:57 pm

Cadet/IP: Sidestep/ Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-1
Check Ride Date: 25 November 2018
Score: Pass
Debrief: As winter rolls into Korea, so does another new cadet - join me in welcoming Sidestep! Most recently flying with the 56th VFW, Sidestep has joined us to continue to hone his skills as a vPilot. We had an uneventful and very productive IQT-1 flight the other night. If this is a sign of things to come then I suspect we will have a new full time flier with us in no time.

Ready to go...

Check Ride #: IQT-2
Check Ride Date: 01 December 2018
Score: Pass
Debrief: Congrats to Sidestep for completing IQT-2 today. We had a warm-up flight in the FNPU and the lessons learned there certainly paid off for this flight. Three 2v2 engagements and 6 quick splashes using 7 slammers; not bad. Definitely some great tactical flying supporting each other and providing cover. Nice refueling and even time for a couple of missile evasion runs. Nice work Sidestep.

Check Ride #: IQT-3
Check Ride Date: 13 December 2018
Score: Pass
Debrief: With a couple practice flights under our belts, Sidestep and I went up for his IQT-3 flight - one which ended up being the longest dogfight I can recall! Sidestep did a great job keeping sight of the fight, the first rule of BVR. He had some good shots and good kills all while communicating and keeping up his SA. Great flight - on to IQT-4!

Cadet/IP: Sidestep/ Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-5
Check Ride Date: 3 January 2019
Score: Pass
Debrief: It was a dark and stormy night...well, not really. But fighting SAMs always makes it feel that way. Sidestep completed IQT-5 the other night leaving just one more flight to go. He made quick work of bore sighting his Mavericks and we topped off at the tanker before heading into unfriendly territory. Sidestep took out two SA-2s in short order with his HARMs utilizing both the POS and HAD modes. After being sent a mark point for the Low Blow he made several runs on the target - getting chased off twice...nice missile evasion - before letting his Mavs loose. We finished off the flight with the DME arc and ILS 26 approach into Kangnung. One more to go!

Departing Choongwon for the final time as a cadet...

Check Ride #: IQT-6
Check Ride Date: 15 January 2019
Score: Pass
Debrief: Please join me in welcoming our newest full member - congrats Sidestep! We had a great IQT-6 flight...so good it had to be split into two flights because of an early tanker departure combined with a mechanical issue when landing at our alternate (that was on me) but last night we finished up the flight and had some company to make it a full one. Sidestep did a nice job with the LGB as well as the loft and pop-ups using Mk82s not to mention a smooth return to Kunsan for the OHB. Definitely looking forward to having another smooth pilot join us on our Wing flights.
