Air Force Embracing New Tech to Solve Pilot Shortage
By Yasmin Tadjdeh


Facing an ongoing pilot shortage, the Air Force has been working to bolster the training of its undergraduate pilots and take advantage of new technologies such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence.

Key to that effort has been the service’s Pilot Training Next initiative, which is how Air Force Education and Training Command is reimagining how it instructs pilots and includes new technology that can be tailored for individual students.

Nestled under the initiative is Undergraduate Pilot Training 2.5. The effort is taking place at both Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas, and Vance Air Force Base, Oklahoma. UPT 2.5 is meant to adapt and assess the effectiveness of some concepts gleaned from the Pilot Training Next program and employ them on a broader scale, said Col. Robert Moschella, 12th Operations Group commander at San Antonio-Randolph.
