I’m surprised the tanker survived. LOL

Good restraint Festus.

See you soon.

Cadet/IP: Festus / Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-6
Check Ride Date: 8 Jul 2019
Score: Pass

Debrief: Congrats go out to Festus for completing IQT-6 last night. We actually pilot it up over a couple flights due to some nagging IVC issues but last night comms were nice and stable. Festus is one of the, if not the first pilot to use the new IQT TEs we are making so my thanks go out to him for being patient as I worked out some of the bugs (and putting up with that crazy tanker!). Festus has got a good handle on the jet and its weapon system and will make a fine addition to our Wing flights. Like many of us he's still looking for more practice on some of the tactics we employ on a regular basis and is still breaking some old habits from his days at the 20th VFW. So if you see him looking for a pick up flight please, or could use an extra pilot for yours, give him a shout! Welcome aboard Festus!
