JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas - The 2014 USAF Test Pilot School selection board will convene here Aug. 5-8 to consider candidates for July 2015 and January 2016 classes, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.

Applications must reach Headquarters Air Force Materiel Command Air, Space and Information Operations by June 23, 4 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

The board will select applicants for fighter, multi-engine aircraft, helicopter and remotely piloted aircraft pilot, combat systems officer (including navigators, electronic warfare officers and weapons system officers) and military and civilian engineer opportunities.

TPS trains pilots, combat systems officers and engineers to develop, test and evaluate the newest aircraft and weapons systems in the fighter, multi-engine, helicopter and remotely piloted aircraft categories, said Peterson.

The 48-week course consists of four closely related curricula: experimental test pilot, experimental test combat systems officer, experimental test remotely piloted aircraft pilot and experimental flight test engineer.

“Selection for a test pilot school position is very competitive,” said Maj. Miles Middleton, AFPC test pilot functional manager. “TPS graduates are future senior leaders who will be in high demand in an era of increasing combat technological advancements on the battlefield.”

Program requirements change slightly every year so interested applicants must submit a new electronic application (and waivers if necessary) for this year’s board, Middleton explained.
