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

Staff Sgt. Desmond Greer, 47th Aerospace Operational and Physiology Training Unit NCO in charge of logistics and maintenance, rolls up risers straps after sing and decent landing training on Jan. 17, 2019, at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. “With us, the pilot students are getting the knowledge for them to be successful in their career: they learn about safety, the effect of flight on their bodies, and some basics of the aircraft,” said Greer. “We see them through all phases of flying. We see the birth of a pilot and watch them grow.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Anne McCready)
