is located at
Sheppard AFB, Texas. The entire course lasts about 55 weeks. Students
learn with, and are taught by, U.S. Air Force officers and officers from
various air forces of our European allies. Student pilots first fly the
T-6 mastering contact, instrument, low-level and formation flying. Next,
they strap on the supersonic T-38 and continue building the skills
necessary to become a fighter pilot.
Nineteenth Air Force also provides follow-on training for most Air Force pilots in their assigned aircraft. Pilots assigned to fighter aircraft complete the introduction to fighter fundamentals course at Sheppard AFB, Texas flying the AT-38B or Moody AFB, Ga., flying the T-38C, and then move on to train in either the F-15C Eagle at Tyndall AFB, Fla., the F-15E Strike Eagle at Seymour-Johnson AFB, NC., the F-16 Fighting Falcon at Luke AFB, Ariz., the A-10 Thunderbolt II at Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ., the B-52 Stratofortress at Barksdale AFB, LA., or the B-1B Lancer at Dyess AFB, TX. You can also get assigned to become a First Assignment Instructor Pilot in either the T-37 or the T-38. ENJJPT is different from the other UPT bases in that their FAIPS will only be assigned to ENJJPT, and they go through their Pilot Instructor Training (PIT) at ENJJPT.
As of 2008, some ENJJPT pilots are also receiving transport aircraft out of their drop. Additionally, some pilots are also dropping to the U-28 (Pilatus PC-12) AFSOC aircraft right out of Sheppard.
