VT-3 Spouse Orientation

Posted In: flight school

Although Rob has been in VT-3 for several months now, new people are always coming in and graduating out.  They have a spouse orientation every couple of months and I was excited to be able to attend this one.

We had dinner, listened to a couple of speakers and then got to see what the flight students do at work everyday.  I was able to try on his gear, check out the T-6 (the plane he flies), and even fly on my own in the simulator.  While I joked that I was hand picked to be the next Blue Angel, I seriously don’t know how he does it!  I was dizzy enough in the simulator just doing one turn upside down and my “landing” definitely would have required an ejection seat…

I can’t believe that Rob actually flies this everyday! That never ceases to amaze me!

  • It's very appropriate that he's in a program called VT-3. Just a daily reminder of the better school 🙂

  • This is so cool! I didn't get to do this until we got to Kingsville with the T-45s, but it was so much fun! I tried to land on the boat in the simulator and crashed about 6 seconds in. oopsies!
