Doc IQT Progress

Post by Derk » Tue Jun 30, 2020 12:52 am

Cadet/IP: Doc / Derk
Check Ride #: IQT-1
Check Ride Date: 28 Jun 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Please help me welcome 'Doc' to IQT, again. Doc had a short start about a year ago until real life called him away a bit. But BMS has called him back and we got the ball rolling again with a busy IQT-1. I think we knocked off most of the rust running through all the Formations, tac turns, and comms, all of which had a nice solid start. We made a few mock runs on transport aircraft to let him test is readiness for IQT-2, and those were all fine. The few times he strayed a bit away he was able to quickly assess and get back into position. The air refuel went well and soon we were in a nice close formation for the overhead break approach to Kunsan. Just a little bobble at the end, but he quickly recovered for smooth landing. Definitely ready for IQT-2.

Nice job Doc, and welcome back!

Check Ride #: IQT-2
Check Ride Date: 09 Jul 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Last night Doc wrapped up the objectives for IQT-2. We did this in a practice TE with a bunch of MiG-29’s to make up for the one’s that never showed in the IQT-2 flight. This was a good call as requested by Doc as it gave enough experience to show he has a good handle on Air to Air engagements in BVR. With about 6 engagements we wracked up 8 or so kills and Doc was able to keep up with the many flight lead calls and redirects for engagements as MiG’s came at us in all directions. It was a good practice after having a few rusty joints on the IQT flight that needed worked out. He’s seems up to speed and ready for BVR now.

Good work Doc!

Cadet/IP: Doc / Derk
Check Ride #: IQT-3
Check Ride Date: 19 Jul 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Last night Doc completed the objectives for IQT-3. After a short round of practice last week in the dogfighting arena, he was looking ready, and showed it in the IQT flight. On the first MiG engagements he was IN on the hostiles with missile shots before I could even get into a good spot for a picture, let alone get into the fight. This showed good support from a wingman who quickly transitioned into engaged fighter. After a short fuel-up on the tanker, we finished with another MiG engagement that Doc lead us through and resulted in another quick kill. Good thing too as my call of the Mig’s missile launch force his immediate defensive turn, but he was still able to get the Splash on the Mig and successfully dodged the missile. We wrapped up with a TRP approach into Yechon to complete the flight.

Nice work prepping and in the flight Doc! On to the ground strike part of IQT now.

Those Migs must have had a Do Not Resuscitate Order because you're killing it, Doc! Nice job.

Check Ride #: IQT-4
Check Ride Date: 25 Jul 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Last night Doc completed the objectives for IQT-4. Our flight left Yechon for a short run until dropping low for a run at the runway target at 500 feel and 500 knots to deliver BLU-107’s. Nice hits from Doc and back in the climb to spot moving tank columns. Doc found a group and made a turn in to release some Mk-20D cluster bombs, but the units moved out of the way just in time. After a short air refuel, we headed to the KOTAR range to release BDU-33’s using the 30- and 20-degree dive bomb profile. Doc’s hits were right on the target along with nice pattern and comms work. We wrapped up the quick flight with a nice TRP approach back into Yechon.

Good job Doc!
