Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training Familiarization Course MS is a Civil Air Patrol National Activity held at Columbus AFB, MS. Columbus trains USAF pilots in a 52 week program.
This activity will put you through simulated pilot training in one week. We will simulate many of the training events that a real USAF student goes through. Aerospace physiology, aircraft system classes, memorization of emergency procedures, and simulators. One day is devoted to reporting with a USAF pilot training flight where you will be quizzed on emergency procedure memory items and then shadow a SUPT student for part of a day.
SUPTFC is conducted by USAF Reserve Officers. We are all Air Force pilots and we have a wide variety of USAF flying backgrounds.
If you want to be a USAF pilot, this is the program for you. You will experience what it takes to get accepted to and graduate from USAF pilot training. There will be opportunities for you to meet and hear from ROTC and USAFA cadets who are also on their way to becoming USAF pilots.
