Check Ride #: IQT-1
Check Ride Date: 21 Jun 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Please join me in welcoming our latest cadet - Hyena. He comes to us with a fair amount of BMS experience from a few years back and even specialized in ACM/WVR tactics so we are looking forward to getting him through IQT and up to speed so that we can learn from his experiences as well. Last night we kicked off IQT with a nice deployment flight from Kadena to Kunsan with some tac turns and formation work along the way. Of course no IQT flight would be complete without a run at the tanker as well. Hyena did a nice job with all of it so we are well on our way to knocking the rust off. Looking forward to more flights with him!

Ramping up at Kadena

Check Ride #: IQT-2
Check Ride Date: 3 Jul 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Congrats to Hyena for passing IQT-2 the other day. Our BVR engagements went off without a hitch and while he is still working through some controller issues and key mapping exercises, Hyena is most definitely showing he has what it takes to fly the Viper. He managed 5 perfect shots killing 5 of the 6 bandits we encountered and demonstrated he understanding of both "chucking spears" and our grinder tactics for clearing / delousing. Nice work Hyena - looking forward to our next flight.

Ready to go!

With his IP now aborting south, Hyena turns back north to delouse in case the -29 evades the shot (which it did).

Oh man, this is embarassing!! I just realized this thread existed :oops:, so I am the latest of all!!

Very nice pictures of the bandits, Zeus, which goes to prove one more time that the IP's SA is 175% or more of that of the trainee!

Check Ride #: IQT-3
Check Ride Date: 16 Jul 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: After working through some hardware issues, Hyena and I finally had a chance to go up for IQT-3 and he showed that he definitely has what it takes to succeed in the air! We splashed all four bandits using just 4 missiles and for an QWVR/BFM fight that's not bad. :) Hyena has got a great handle on the jet and knows how to fly it so I'm really looking forward to getting him in the air with us on Wing flights. Keep up the good work!

Check Ride #: IQT-4

Score: Pass

Debrief: Another fun flight with Hyena last night as we polished off IQT-4. While Hyena prefers A-A engagements, he clearly has a good grasp of the A-G capabilities of the Viper. With clear weapon hits during our OCA strike, a cluster bomb attack on an armored column and nice runs at the range, Hyena is easily ready to move on to things that shoot back at you - on to IQT-5!

Then because he was running low on fuel, I let Hyena tank first...apparently the tanker got confused by that because he then flew in a perfect 360 for the entire flight! But Hyena grabbed a full load of fuel!

Check Ride #: IQT-5
Check Ride Date: 5 Aug 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Another flawless flight racked up by Hyena last night as we completed IQT-5. For a guy that prefers A-A engagements these SAM operator have something to fear! Hyena racked up perfect kills with his HARM shots using POS to smackdown the first SA-2 while I acted as bait and using the HAD to smack down the second on his own. He had two hits with his Mavs as well hitting what he had targeted (that rotating beacon really did have it coming). And he was able to pass mark points to me so that I could unleash my Mavs as well with good results. Only one more to go!

Ramping up for our night flight...
