RPA training

Maj. Todd Salzwedel (left), 559th Flying Training Squadron director of staff, demonstrates final check procedures to a 558th Flying Training Squadron remotely piloted aircraft instrument qualification student, prior to his first orientation flight in a T-6 Texas II May 12 at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas. This is the first class to get a real world feel of what manned pilots experience in a combat environment, offers validation of their training and provides a different perspective than what they receive in a simulator.
