Network, whether you’re a new pilot aspiring to fly the T-38C in UPT, or you’re looking for a fun and exciting Reserve job as you leave Active Duty, teaching Phase III as a Reserve T-38C IP could be a great option for you. Don’t take my word for it though. Check out the latest post from TPN Sponsor BogiDope, based on an interview with pilot doing that job right now.
I have a treat for you today! I just interviewed a reserve T-38C UPT IP, whom we’ll call Star-Lord for the sake of anonymity. The results of our conversation will explain how to get that job as a reservist along with the good and bad of that path. If you’re looking to leave Active Duty in the next few years (and you should be) this article is a must-read for you.
Then, we’ll discuss Star-Lord’s pet peeves and secrets to success for T-38C students in UPT. If you’re a Guard or Reserve pilot who thinks you’ve got it made once you get to UPT, you’re in for a rude awakening. Whether you’re part of the Total Force or on Active Duty, this post needs to be mandatory reading for every T-38C UPT student for the next few years.
