The 2015 Air Force Test Pilot School (TPS) selection board will convene July 20-24 to consider candidates for July 2016 and January 2017 classes. Applications are due to the Air Force Personnel Center by June 5.

The board will select applicants for fighter, multi-engine aircraft, helicopter and remotely piloted aircraft pilot, combat systems officers – to include navigators, electronic warfare officers and weapons system officers -- and military and civilian engineer opportunities.

TPS trains officers and civilians to develop, test, and evaluate the newest aircraft and weapons systems. The 48-week course covers experimental test pilot, experimental test combat systems officer, experimental test remotely piloted aircraft pilot and experimental flight test engineer curricula.

Eligible regular Air Force, Air Reserve component and civilians may apply for the program. Eligibility criteria and application procedures are available on the myPers website under “2015 USAF Test Pilot School Selection Board.”
