These instructor pilots instruct in all aspects of the F-16 Basic Course, as well as augment Mobile Training Teams (MTT) sent abroad for “in-country” flight instruction with partner nations. These MTTs are critical to integrating with America’s coalition partners and go a long way to foster stronger international relations.
