The crew of the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group observed the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, perform while underway in the Atlantic Ocean May 20. The Blue Angels completed a flyover of the United States Naval Academy commissioning ceremony the morning of the 20th. On the trip back to Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida, a formation of six F/A-18C/D Hornet aircraft performed as a salute to the HSTCSG Sailors, who remain at sea in the Atlantic as a certified carrier strike group.

Two Newest RAF Pilots Earned their Wings in 'Record Time'

Training Will Also, In the Future, Place Greater Emphasis On Synthetic Training

Squadron Leader Chris Pearson and Flight Lieutenant Jamie Bell are the first to partake in a trial which may provide an alternative training pipeline pathway to flying a fast jet. Having achieved their wings in under a year, both pilots will now progress onto the Hawk T2 with 25(F) Squadron at RAF Valley later in the summer. In so doing they may pave the way for future fast jet pilots to earn their wings at RAF College Cranwell. The two pilots began Elementary Flying Training (EFT) with 57 Squadron at RAFC Cranwell in May 2019.  Upon successful completion of EFT and after being streamed for Fast Jet, they were selected to partake in a novel collaboration between the RAF and Ascent Flight Training, the Prefect-direct to-Hawk initiative.

USAF Allows For Shorter Pilots

Removes Initial Height Requirement For Officer Aviators

As part of the Air Force’s on-going effort to encourage a more diverse pool of applicants to pursue careers in aviation, the minimum height requirement for officer applicants who wish to fly has been removed as of May 13.

DeFilippi, who chairs the Department of the Air Force Barrier Analysis Working Group, explained,

NTSB Prelim: North American SNJ Aircraft

Ouch... Airplane Entered A Ground Loop

The pilot reported that he had just completed a landing in a tailwheel equipped airplane, and he noticed the wind began to shift. He then elected to conduct another wheel landing. The pilot stated he landed on runway 17, on centerline, and that as he lowered the tail, the airplane experienced a strong pull to the right. He was unable to keep the airplane from departing the runway and as he reduced the throttle, the airplane entered a ground loop. The airplane's right main landing gear collapsed, and the wing and propeller struck the ground.
