Lt. Gen. Brad Webb, commander of Air Education and Training Command, presided during the ceremony and provided remarks to the seven Helicopter Training Next graduates who earned their wings at Fort Rucker, Alabama, June 22, 2201. They began their training August 2020 as part of a small group tryout who went directly to Rucker for TH-1 training, and are the first Air Force officers to earn their wings from a helicopter-only syllabus since 1993. Helicopter Training Next is one aspect of the AETC Pilot Training Transformation efforts that include Undergraduate Pilot Training 2.5, Accelerated Path to Wings, Remote SIM Instruction, Civil Path to Wings and Alternate Path to Wings.
