Test Pilot School participants explore the skills needed to fly an wide range of aircraft.  Flight simulation missions in airplanes ranging from basic trainers to modern jet fighters provide hands-on flying experience.  Construction of flying and display aircraft models allows Test Pilots to gain an appreciation for the many different design criteria used to build aircraft for various missions, and in-depth cockpit checkouts give participants unparalleled access to real airplanes and helicopters.

Test Pilot Fridays feature an offsite adventure to the Oakland Aviation Museum to explore more early aircraft, jet fighters, flying boats and more.
