JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) --
Fifty-three company grade officers and one major have been selected for the Air Force's Undergraduate Flying Training program.
The UFT annual selection board convened in January to consider active-duty candidates for the program. Those selected will attend pilot, remotely piloted aircraft, combat systems officer or air battle manager training.
"The board members evaluated each officer based on their officer performance record, the pilot candidate selection method test score, and the Air Force Officer Qualification Test score," said Maj. Chris Russell, an F-15 assignments chief.
Pilot training candidates will attend specialized undergrad pilot training at Columbus Air Force Base, Mississippi; Vance AFB, Oklahoma; or Laughlin AFB, Texas.
RPA selectees will attend training at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas. ABM candidates will attend training at Tyndall AFB, Florida, and CSO candidates will attend training at Pensacola Naval Air Station, Florida.
"The UFT selection board was extremely competitive this year." said Maj. Stephen Barbour, the air battle manager and air liaison officer assignments chief. "There was an abundance of quality applicants with increased interest in the RPA selection."
