Thanks all for the support! Having to take a week break unfortunately as my project to make a frankenstick out of my CH fighterstick and a t16000m ran into some snags. Related...if anyone knows if super glue will cause SLA resin to become excessively weak, let me know!

Cadet/IP: Lethal / Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-5
Check Ride Date: 7 Feb 2021
Score: Pass

Debrief: Another successful IQT flight yesterday with Lethal who is showing that he's worth of his callsign. :) This time it was our night mission to destroy SAM sites and practice creating markpoints to be use for target passing and he accomplished all the goals. Lethal made quick work of boresighting his Mavs after takeoff, then did a nice job getting on the boom at night so we could quickly move on to the strike portion of the flight. His well timed POS shot destroyed the Fan Song before the enemy could even launch a missile. And while the second SA-2 site took every remaining HARM we both had to take it out, Lethal had no issue taking out the SA-3 with his Mav and then finding a target for me to expend my Mavs on. One more to go!

Getting ready to head out...

Kaboom! That's how you take out an SA-3 using nothing but a Mav - nice job!

Thanks everyone! I really enjoyed IQT and it's pretty remarkable the amount of info I learned and improved upon just in the last 6 flights! Definitely looking forward to joining wing flights!

Stac - Zeus was always super helpful in answering all my questions so I think the one thing I'd say is to not hesitate to ask questions! Also, just practicing the built in TE's over the week to understand exactly how to deploy the systems used that week was super helpful and then I could show up for the flight with any questions I couldn't figure out during my "dry runs". I found that employing most of the systems is essentially just a checklist (click this button, then this button, confirm this, check that, etc.) so repeating those tasks multiple times through the week certainly helped build the muscle memory so that I could do it quickly and effectively during the flight. From the looks of it your own IQT is off to a great start!
