USAF IFT-R Program
Beginning in August 2020, Brunner Aero has been providing initial rotary wing qualification and seasoning training to United States Air Force helicopter pilots at our facility at the Georgetown Executive Airport in Georgetown, TX. A mix of USAF active duty and Air National Guard pilots, many of our students start the training program with zero flight hours. The rigorous, fast-paced program puts 50 flight hours on our students, including 3 solo hours (with 1.5 solo cross-country hours), 3 night hours, and 10 instrument familiarization hours.
Our team of highly motivated and extremely talented instructor pilots is comprised of Army, Air Force, and Marine veterans, most of whom are combat vets. With over 58,000 combined flight hours, our instructor pilots understand the demands helicopter pilots face and are committed to ensuring our students are successful. To date, the Brunner Aero team has graduated 142 pilots with a 100% success rate.
It is our privilege to contribute to continuing national defense efforts and shape the future of military aviation.
