RPA Training Next transforms pipeline to competency-based construct
Maj. Tim, 558th Flying Training Squadron remotely piloted aircraft instrument qualification instructor pilot, Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas oversees and teaches 2nd Lt. Ethan, 111th Attack Wing, RPA Student, Horsham Air National Guard Station, Pa., Oct. 23, 2019, in the Texan T-6 Simulator. The Air Force is transforming training through Remotely-Piloted Aircraft Training Next, a competency-based training concept where RPA students undergo a tailor-made program based on their capabilities and needs rather than an entire class following a rigid construct and transitioning through the entire pipeline together has been the long-term goal.
