A video showing the many facets of the AETC mission -- to Recruit, Train, and Educate Exceptional Airmen
Fueled by vision, leadership, and energy, 17th Training Wing leadership launches a new strategic approach for 2020. It’s “The Goodfellow Way.”
Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation, Critical Care Air Transport, and Aeromedical Evacuation teams came together on a historic trip, saving the life of a Soldier wounded during combat operations in Afghanistan. The rapid response trip to evacuate the service member saw a level of in-flight critical care never seen before. The 20-hour straight flight home with constant dialysis was a crucial link in getting the Soldier to the higher level of care they needed.

Wings across AETC are breaking old training paradigms and establishing new ones, such as making proficiency the constant instead of time, teaching in context of the mission, and give the student control of what, when and how they learn.
Lt. Col. Matt Strohmeyer, commander of the 560th Flying Training Squadron, at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, discusses how emerging technologies like Virtual Reality (VR), are shattering paradigms in pilot instructor training.
