Air Force Pilot Training, 1966

The year-long training program required by 1960s Air Force pilots. Covers all aspects from basic flight techniques in Cessna light aircraft before progressing to jet fighters, emergency ejection, parachute landing. The 1964 Cessna 172 featured in this video (N5100F) is still airworthy and currently registered to a Mr. Franklin Ladd in Tennessee. Don’t you love it when old airplanes are still flying? If you wondered what Mike Farrell was up to before the TV show MASH (Captain B.J. Hunnicutt) now you know, he is the guy in this film that keeps watching the main character from a distance.
