I taught mainly newly commissioned United States Air Force Officers in the Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training (SUPT) Program at Laughlin AFB, TX. However, the Air Force also has allocations for training students of many allied nations from around the world, sponsored by their respective governments.
This collaboration highlights the sights and sounds of the Flightline and Airfield Operations at UPT/SUPT during typical daytime training just east of the town of Del Rio under the Aerodrome of Laughlin AFB, TX. Most times of the year, the Index Of Thermal Stress (ITS) is Hot. As you check-in with the Supervisor Of Flying (SOF), the boards always indicates (ITS) – HOT. Get use to it; it’s the desert of West Texas, and most of the terrain looks the same from the air.
