TPS graduates Class 12B

USAF Test Pilot School Class 12B.

Twenty-four students graduated from the United States Air Force Test Pilot School during a ceremony held here, June 15 where they each were awarded a Master of Science in Flight Test Engineering from Air University.

It was the culmination of an intense, 48-week program that included more than 2,500 hours of academics and approximately 120 hours of in-flight training; transforming top operational pilots, navigators and engineers into elite flight test professionals.

They will now be integrated into teams throughout the flight test enterprise and begin shaping the technology and weapon systems of the future for the Air Force, sister services and allied nations.

Congratulations to Class 12B!
