The Air Force will begin the first-of-its-kind unmanned aircraft systems fundamentals course at Randolph AFB, Tex., Nov. 21, 2008. The four-week course is designed for 10 new undergraduate pilot training graduates chosen to proceed on a direct path toward operating unmanned aerial vehicles such as the MQ-1 Predator without first having extensive experience flying manned aircraft. Here, Capt. Sam Allen, an instructor with Randolph’s 563rd Flying Training Squadron, operates the controls of a battlespace simulator in the course's laboratory.
