Pilot Training Next
Students from the Pilot Training Next Program conduct drag training at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, March 2, 2018. This training simulates a parachute dragging the pilot on the ground after landing. The goal of this training is to familiarize pilots with parachute disconnect procedures so they can avoid injuries while being drug by a parachute after landing. The Pilot Training Next program is putting 15 officers and five enlisted members through a new pilot training program geared toward creating what is being termed fighter trained unit-ready Airmen.
