Cadet/IP: Mailman/ Zeus
Check Ride #: IQT-1
Check Ride Date: 12 May 2020
Score: Pass

Debrief: After a long absence, its a please to welcome Mailman back to the flock. We went for his IQT-1 flight and found that under the cobwebs was the heart of a Viper pilot! :) Mailman did a great job with SOPs, formations, tac turns and our OHB. About the only thing he didn't get to do was refuel as the tanker was stuck in a perpetual turn (haven't seen that bug in a while) and Mailman's stick was having some trim sensitivity issues that made it unwise to proceed beyond the pre-contact position. All in all a nice flight and I'm looking forward to the rest. Welcome back Mailman.

Pleasure being back. I may have to clean the cobwebs off my bike in the garage and go for a spin. If I fall, it's Badgers fault! I actually almost got connected to the Tanker on the turn. I always had problems with that, so it may just be me. Seemed like the Tanker was taking it's time connecting after the PDI Lights went out after pre-contact. I get impatient, and figure if I bump his belly a couple of times, he will get the message :)
