Uniform requirement for this course for the last day of class, is the dress uniform for JROTC and CAP organizations; a class photo will be taken. For other Youth Organizations, the equivalent dress uniform is appropriate. All other training days, and for those not in one of these organizations, their clothing needs to be clean, tidy, and “school” appropriate.
The first 6 qualified respondents will be placed in each class. An additional 2 students will be placed on a waiting list. However because the curriculum builds on the previous class session(s), once class starts, the waiting list goes away.
To register, send an email with the subject line “Introduction to Becoming a Pilot” to NMUSAF.MUT.IntroPilot@us.af.mil.

Arrival to Each Class
Please allow for approximately 10 minutes for entry of the Museum, and walking to the classroom. Each session will consist of approximately 45 minutes - 1 hour of ground school, with the remaining time spent on the simulators applying newly learned concepts. During the simulated flight time, each student will receive one-on-one instruction from a current or former military, commercial or private pilot, or a flight simulation expert (based on the availability of the instructors).
If you are a JROTC, CAP, or other youth organization that wishes to schedule 6 students for a specific class, please identify this in your email. For groups, please e-mail your request at least a month in advance.
