The Air Force on May 5, 2010, ushered in its first class of combat systems officers to undergo training at new facilities at NAS Pensacola, Fla., under the supervision of the 479th Flying Training Group, activated in October 2009. The year-long CSO course, formerly taught at Randolph AFB, Tex., merges training for navigators, electronic warfare officers, and weapons system officer. BRAC 2005 directed collocation of such training with the Navy. Here, an artist rendering of the new USAF combat systems officer facility at NAS Pensacola.
