Jester IQT Progress

Post by Derk » Wed May 08, 2019 12:20 am

Cadet/IP: Jester / Derk
Check Ride #: IQT-1
Check Ride Date: 6 April 2019
Score: Pass

Debrief: Please help me welcome "Jester" to IQT. I'll leave the door cracked open for each of you to discover on your own how deep Jesters roots run in BMS and his history as a vPilot, but after some inactive time away from a VFW he is still a darn good BMS vpilot from my initial observation. With the rust being dusted off quickly, we ran through the IQT-1 objectives to demonstrate all of the formations and tac turns before we hit the tanker - well over Joker. With a short top-off of fuel, we headed towards Kunsan for some nice looking Finger Tip formation work.

Thanks, Jester, for the offer to lead us into the final at Kunsan so I could get a refresher too. Glued to my wing in Echelon Right we did the overhead break at Kunsan and it seemed like we were done before it barely started. With only a few days in our SOP's there are only little gaps left that need filled in and he'll be all set.

A very smooth start in our IQT program Jester!

Anyone with knowledge of Falcon history would know the callsign “Jester”.
Super to have you here and great to see you back in the saddle.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! And thanks for the flattering writeup Derk. Thoroughly enjoyed the session from start to finish. Looks like the 440th is just the WD-40 I need.

Really looking forward to more flying and caddying some missiles around for you :-)
