    I could tell you, but then you'd have to kill me...or something like that.
    That's why they say, "You'll be sorry!"

    Nauga,
    who wasn't.

    My brother, being a graduate, is where I got that number, however:
    "Class sizes have been uniformly quite small, with recent classes having about twenty students." "Admission into the USAF TPS is clearly extremely competitive, with thousands of pilots to select from. The best and the brightest of the available thousands compete to attend this School." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Air_Force_Test_Pilot_School
    "The United States Air Force Test Pilot School (USAF TPS) is where the Air Force's top pilots, navigators and engineers learn how to conduct flight test and generate the data needed to carry out test missions. http://www.edwards.af.mil/Units/USAFTPS

    Nothing wrong with that, little buddy. My brother flew tankers, and being an EE and computer science guy, while a KC-10 IP, he developed mission planning software for the KC-10 and obtained Air Force approval for employment across all KC-10 units.

    I actually knew a guy who was sorry. Said if he could go back again, he never would have put in for the course.

    I've seen their little selection prep book. Way above my college math background. I'd last all of a month...at least until I got a Hornet ride, then I'd drop. :D I actually knew a guy who did that as well.

    I don't think that's all that uncommon.

    Well, they used to send the Army guys through remedial, er, refresher academic training beforehand. :rolleyes: Seriously.

    Nauga,

    We still have 3 months left to see this become reality, right?

    Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pilot’s life for me

    Drink up me hearties, yo ho
    We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot
    Drink up me hearties, yo ho
    Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pilot’s life for me
    We extort, we pilfer we filch and sack
    Drink up me hearties, yo ho
    Maraud and embezzle and even high-jack
    Drink up me hearties yo ho
    Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pilot’s life for me
    We kindle and charts inflame and ignite
    Drink up me hearties, yo ho
    We burn up the city we're really a fright
    Drink up me hearties, yo ho
    We're rascals, scoundrels villains, and knaves
    Drink up me hearties yo ho
    We're devils and black sheep - really bad eggs
    Drink up me hearties yo ho
    Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pilot’s life for me
    We're beggars and blighters and ne'er do-well cads
    Drink up me hearties, yo ho
    Aye, but we're loved by our mommies and dads
    Drink up me hearties, yo ho.

    This will all be an interesting experiment on “trimming the fat”.

    I suspect that the virus BS will put this about two years behind, but I suspect things will recover quickly once life gets back to normal.
