DHawk IQT Progress

Post by Zeus » Sat Apr 18, 2020 4:56 pm

Cadet/IP: DHawk / Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-1
Check Ride Date: 15 Apr 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Please join me in welcoming our latest cadet - DHawk. He's a real world pilot and has a great handle on BMS already so really looking forward to having him join us after completing IQT. We had a great flight this past week (sorry for the delay in posting) where he showed he could easily handle the jet, fly in formation and even did well with his intro to tact turns. Keep up the great work DHAwk!

Cadet/IP: DHawk / Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-2
Check Ride Date: 22 Apr 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: DHawk continues his march through IQT easily completing our BVR session tonight despite the reluctance of the MiG-29s to engage (they knew how tough we were and wouldn't come play). He's got a good handle on the systems and is working on the voice comms; silence is a hard habit to break if you're not use to talking while flying. That said - I would put him into any Wing flight in a A-A role today and he will likely bring the jet home. Tac turns getting better and he certainly has go SA. We did some missile evasion work too which he handled without an issue. Now its time to get into a knife fight - on to dog fighting!

Sad part is, my IP during my first Private Pilot lessons said I already was talking on the radio like someone going through their final checkride. I'll get it down. :D

On to ACM!

Cadet/IP: DHawk/ Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-3
Check Ride Date: 6 May 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Another really good flight with DHawk the other night. We tackled all 4 bandits including a MiG-21 that wanted to see how slow he could fly. DHawk managed to keep sight of at least a portion of each fight at all times calling 'tally' or 'visual' quite a lot. And despite a really sloppy job by his IP at executing a TRP into Yechon, he managed to stay at least within view at all times. Looking forward to some ground pounding now and I promise to do better on our next TRP.

Ready to go hunting...

Check Ride #: IQT-4
Check Ride Date: 13 May 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: Last nihgt we let DHawk loose to do some A-G training and he did a great job. We started off with a low-level strike using BLU-107s - something he said he hadn't done before. Nice job turning the runway into a Wisconsin side street in spring time (that would be full of potholes). From there we clustered some ground units sitting in a town and then after grabbing some fuel we headed for the range. Like most on their first trip to the range it takes a few passes to get into the rhythm but once he did, DHawks passes looked great and weapons were right on target. We finished off with a well executed TRP into Yechon - on to SEAD/DEAD work and night flying!

Oh, and please feel free to invite DHawk along on any pick up flights in an A-A capacity at this point; he should be just fine.
