The only female AV-8B Harrier pilot in the Marine Corps

Interview with U.S. Marine Corps Capt. Kelsey Casey at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona, March 27-28, 2019. Casey, 30, is from San Francisco and is a 2011 graduate of San Francisco State University. She is the only female AV-8B Harrier pilot in the Marine Corps. She recently deployed with Marine Attack Squadron 311 to the Middle East as part of Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force – Crisis Response – Central Command. This is a rotational deployment that began in 2013 where Marines support U.S and allied operations within U.S. Central Command’s area of responsibility, most notably, coalition operations against ISIS and other terrorist organizations. Upon the completion of her deployment, she will begin training on the new Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35B Lightning II.

Meet Lt. Rossella Ventura: An Italian Air Force Fighter Pilot Trainee Flying Aermacchi M-346:
Rossella Ventura: Tenente Allieva Pilota Aeronautica Militare


NON SI FERMA L'ADDESTRAMENTO DEI PILOTI DELL’AERONAUTICA MILITARE
http://www.aeronautica.difesa.it/comunicazione/notizie/Pagine/Prosegueattivit%C3%A0addestramento61esimo.aspx
L'emergenza non ferma le attività operative ed addestrative della Forza Armata. Il 61° Stormo consegna ai reparti operativi altri due giovani “aquile” pronte a salire sui caccia
Si è conclusa giovedì 14 maggio, con la consegna degli attestati di fine corso, la formazione di due piloti militari italiani “fighter” che, dopo un intenso periodo di addestramento, lasciano, emozionati ma soddisfatti per il traguardo raggiunto, il 61° Stormo di Galatina.

Provenienti entrambi dal corso “Pegaso V” dell’Accademia Aeronautica, le due giovani “aquile” hanno terminato il LIFT (Lead In-to Fighter Training Course), l’ultima fase del complesso iter di formazione di un pilota destinato alle linee “caccia”.

Il corso (denominato anche di “fase 4”) si è svolto sull’Integrated Training System T-346, una piattaforma addestrativa ipertecnologica capace di traghettare i frequentatori verso i velivoli di ultima generazione: il sistema non si limita infatti a insegnare a pilotare velivoli ad altissime prestazioni avioniche e aerodinamiche, ma consente agli studenti di prendere confidenza in modo graduale con la gestione dei sistemi d’arma e dei relativi sensori e armamenti, in scenari sempre più complessi e in situazioni ad alto rischio.

Per raggiungere questo obiettivo, si utilizza un processo in cui il volo reale (sul T-346) rappresenta l’ultimo gradino dell’apprendimento. La maggioranza dei blocchi addestrativi infatti prevede una successione degli argomenti che partono da tutorial sui simulatori basici per poi passare a sortite sugli avanzatissimi simulatori di volo. L’impiego effettivo sul velivolo reale è lo strumento finale.

La formazione dei due piloti, che prima di diventare “operativi” a tutti gli effetti, effettueranno il passaggio macchina presso le Operational Conversion Unit del 6° Stormo di Ghedi e del 51° Stormo di Istrana, è stata affidata al 212° Gruppo Volo del 61° Stormo. Entrambi i piloti avevano frequentato a Galatina anche la “fase 3” e avevano acquisito il brevetto di pilota militare su velivolo T339C.

Nel consegnare l’attestato di fine corso, il Colonnello Alberto Surace, Comandante del 61° Stormo, si è congratulato con i ragazzi, spronandoli a continuare a svolgere il proprio dovere al servizio del Paese con entusiasmo e dedizione.

Negli ultimi due mesi, nonostante l'emergenza COVID19, il 61° Stormo ha proseguito l’attività addestrativa, adottando tutte le necessarie precauzioni, portando a termine corsi di fase 2, 3 e 4. La fondamentale missione della scuola di volo salentina, dipendente dal Comando Scuole A.M./3ª Regione Aerea di Bari, è quella, infatti, di provvedere all’addestramento al volo su aviogetti:
• di fase 2 - Primary Pilot Training, comune a tutti gli allievi piloti militari, finalizzata alla individuazione delle linee su cui voleranno (fighters, pilotaggio remoto RPA, elicotteri, trasporto);
• di fase 3 – Specialized Pilot Training, rivolta esclusivamente agli allievi piloti selezionati per le linee “Fighter” e “RPA”, si conclude con il conseguimento del Brevetto di Pilota Militare (aquila turrita);
• di fase 4 - Lead In to Fighter Training, propedeutica al successivo impiego sui velivoli Fighters.

First female SUPT graduate at Vance selected to fly the F-35 Lightning II
https://www.aetc.af.mil/News/Article/2388592/first-female-supt-graduate-at-vance-selected-to-fly-the-f-35-lightning-ii/
VANCE AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. -- If the Air Force was casting for another Marvel movie, their lead is right here at Vance -- 2nd Lt. Rachel Vander Kolk.
On May 1, Vander Kolk graduated from the Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training program and became the first woman selected here to fly the F-35 Lightning II -- the jet of the future.
The F-35 requires the best that the Air Force has to offer - which is where Vander Kolk steps in.
The selectee comes from the University of Virginia with a degree in Aerospace Engineering. She played collegiate level lacrosse all four years of college.
She wanted to be in the Air Force and found her way in through the one-year program that UVA temporarily offered for ROTC students.
“I basically did a crash course in ROTC, went to Field Training, commissioned and then came here,” said Vander Kolk.
Once she got to Vance, she wasn’t sure what she wanted to fly, but she took the same go-getter attitude from college to the flight line.
“When I got here, I just wanted to be in the air,” said Vander Kolk.
She was open to the needs of the Air Force but gradually, she began to hone in on the F-35. Vander Kolk liked the idea of being in a jet that was good in all aspects of air combat.
Vander Kolk didn’t know she would be a first for Vance if she got what she wanted. She was focusing on celebrating the success of her class at drop night - the tradition every pilot goes through when they find out what assignment and aircraft they will get.
She flew that morning, so she didn’t have a lot of time to anticipate what she would drop. There was noticeable electricity in the air for all the student pilots.
And when the assignments dropped, Vander Kolk made history for Vance.
“There’s not a lot of words to describe the feeling I had when I found out,” said Vander Kolk.
After working so hard for her goal of F-35 selection, it took time to process what she achieved both for herself and women at Vance.
She attributed her success to teamwork. “Everybody’s mission is important,” said Vander Kolk. “Looking out for my team is what lifts me up.”
The F-35 selectee encouraged everyone pursuing ambitious goals to work hard at everything they do to open as many doors as possible.
“I didn’t always know I wanted to be a pilot, but I wanted to be the best at what I tried,” said Vander Kolk.
Captain Marvel would certainly approve.

Wonder the cause the crash??? :|


Nonetheless, very sad to see the loss of two young pilots. That had their whole lives ahead of them....
