Airborne-Flight Training 03.18.21: XPW USAF Training, Italian Navy, CAP Scholars

Also: WAI Scholarships, Final Drone Rules, Ray Foundation CAF Grant, Nat'l Aerobatics Day

Seven Airmen made history as the first “Accelerated Path to Wings” program  to graduate and they transitioned from students to Air Force pilots during a ceremony on March 12.

Nicknamed the “XPW” program, the course is part of Air Education and Training Command's current pilot training transformation efforts and consists of students completing an undergraduate pilot training curriculum that only utilizes one airframe, the T-1 Jayhawk. Traditional UPT is a three-phase program that produces pilots in 12 months. The Italian navy’s first female strike fighter pilot received her Wings of Gold after completing undergraduate flight training with the “Tigers” of Training Squadron (VT) 9 at NAS Meridian, Mississippi. Raballo conducted her final graded curriculum event in a T-45C Goshawk jet trainer aircraft on March 10. She returned to her squadron mates waiting on the Training Air Wing 1 flight line for a traditional “soft winging” ceremony during which Angermann presented Raballo with a fabric patch emblazoned with the Wings of Gold. Nearly 100 Civil Air Patrol cadets from 35 wings are receiving academic and flight scholarships worth a combined total of more than $155,500 in 2021. Twenty more cadets were recommended for acceptance to the U.S. Air Force Preparatory School in Colorado Springs. In all, 61 academic scholarships account for $120,500 of the total amount, with 32 flight scholarships totaling the remaining $35,000. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
