A day in the life of an instructor pilot during COVID-19
Lt. Col. Brian Tripp, 434th Flying Training Squadron director of operations, gathers with Capt. Joshua White, 434th FTS X flight commander and instructor pilot, and others for a meeting, April 23, 2020 at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. “Just like much of the world we feel like we are all in this together, and we are prepared to do anything we can to help the instructor pilots and students,” White said. “As a flight commander my main concern right now is to take care of my instructors and students. If they feel like we don’t care or if they are worried for their safety they will not be able to meet their full potential every day. We need them focused on safety and training.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Anne McCready)
