Chief IQT Progress

Post by Zeus » Sat Jun 01, 2019 7:23 pm

Cadet/IP: Chief/ Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-1
Check Ride Date: 1 Jun 2019
Score: Pass

Debrief: Welcome Chief to IQT! Chief is our latest addition to the IQT program and today we went up for our first flight; the deployment from Japan to South Korea. Along the way we practiced various formations, did some tac turns and even grabbed some gas at the tanker. We recovered at Kunsan via the OHB and are now ready to start live fire exercises. Nice job Chief!

Cadet/IP: Chief/ Zeus with Hurl on a ride along
Check Ride #: IQT-2
Check Ride Date: 17 Jun 2019
Score: Pass
Debrief: We had a great BVR flight last night with Chief doing a great job respecting the MAR and getting weapons on target. He took on the two Tu-16s (although one acted as a shield to protect his buddy) and managed to kill a MiG-23 and a MiG-29 in subsequent engagements. Chief even managed to tank in the turn. Nice job!

Ready to go with Hurl for backup.

Cadet/IP: Chief/ Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-3
Check Ride Date: 6 Jul 2019
Score: Pass

Debrief: It must be dogfighting season as I was back up for another IQT-3 flight, this time with Chief. He did a great job on the engagements with great comms and working as a team to splash the bandits. The tanker driver this morning was clearly hammered as he just kept putting us in turns but Chief hung in there and grabbed enough fuel for us to continue with some tail-chase exercises before executing a TRP into Yechon. All around a good flight - on to IQT-4!

Nice formation take-off

Raytio, I'm just happy that I didn't shoot down my IP! I'm also going to do my best to make you lose your life savings on IQT-4! :lol: :lol:

Zeus is a great IP and I'm actually learning quite a bit as we progress. Hoping to get through the rest of IQT soon. Lots of AAR practice and KOTAR range practice in my future the next few days.
