The 47th AOPTU prepares student pilots to land a career in flight

2nd Lt. Lavanson Coffee, from Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training class 20-05, is attached to the swing and decent landing trainer, at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas, on Jan. 17, 2019, ready for the swing portion of the parachute training. Aerospace physiologists are an instrumental part of the student pilots’ training. The 47th Aerospace Operational and Physiology Training Unit teaches some of the academic portion of the training and teaches students about their flight gear, what they may experience in flight, and much more. One important part of pilot training AOPTU instructs, is the effects of hypoxia and how to prevent it. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Anne McCready)
