Following the BFT course the AFT course is now available.
A 10 Mission Campaign that covers Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification in the A-10C Warthog.
The A-10C Pilot Qualification Course has the following phases
Phase 1: Academic Classes and Pre-Flight Training
Phase 2: Basic Flight Training Qualification
Phase 3: Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification
Phase 4: Tactical Training Qualification
Phase 1 gives you Initial Qualification Training (IQT) and is a pre-requisite for Phase 2. Hopefully you have completed Phase 1 and are familiar with the A-10C aircraft systems and instruments. If not, please read the A-10C Flight Manual before continuing.
Phase 2 gives you Basic Aircraft Qualification (BAQ).
It is a pre-requisite for Phase 3. It is recommended that you complete that phase before proceeding to Phase 3.
Phase 3 makes you Basic Mission Capable (BAC). It is a pre-requisite for Phase 4.
Phase 4 makes you Combat Mission Ready (CMR). This is necessary before proceeding on any real combat missions.
The goal of the A-10C Pilot Qualification Course is to prepare Cadets for combat operations flying the A-10C in a number of mission roles. Commanders require pilots with the skills and training necessary to be successful on the battlefield.
Each Phase of training will contain individual Performance Objectives (POs) that must be met to pass the course. Performance Checks (PCs) will be used to determine if you have met the requirements of the PO.
Following each flight (known as a Check Ride) your Flight Examiner (FE) will rate you using one of the following proficiency levels as directed in A/OA-10 – Aircrew Evaluation Criteria: AFI11-2A-OA-10V2:
Qualified (Q): Performance is correct. Quickly recognizes and corrects errors.
Qualified Minus (Q-): Performance is safe, but indicates limited proficiency. Makes errors of omission or commission.
Unqualified (U): Performance is unsafe or indicates lack of knowledge or ability.
In addition for any flight missions:
Qualified (Q): Altitude +/- 200 feet, Airspeed +/- 5%, Course +/- 5 degrees / 3 NM (whichever is greater)
Qualified Minus (Q-): Altitude +/- 300 feet, Airspeed +/- 10%, Course +/- 10 degrees / 5 NM (whichever is greater)
Unqualified (U): Exceeded Q- limits
Phase 3 - Advanced Aircraft Training has the following stages:
Advanced Flight Training Stage
AFT01 - Air to Air Refueling Day
AFT02 - Air to Air Refueling Night
AFT03 - Countermeasures and Threat Avoidance
AFT04 - Target Area Ingress Preparation
