The day has finally arrived - we have taken delivery of the mighty Grumman F-14B Tomcat, and we are off to a strong start.
Pro_Shell has completed the first Air Refueling already, and CASE I will surely follow.
Please report any anomalies to your Crew Chiefs so we know what we can expect, and we will see you on the flight line.
As many of you can already tell, Joint Task Force Heavy [HVY] is an extremely adaptive group of squadrons, that (so far) have made huge advancements in rank structure, squadron expectations, and amount of aircraft we have integrated into our force.
On March 13th, 2019, we take expand further to take delivery of the Grumman F-14B Tomcat, with VFC-119 being the squadron they are assigned to.
With this expansion of capability, it is well understood that there will be a measure of movement within the squadrons - pilots who want to transfer to VFC-119 after delivery of the aircraft. This is OK. However, I am asking that all potential transfers fly the aircraft for two weeks to get a feel for it, and to make a final decision on the transfer itself.
Until then, hit the manuals, get some rest, and get your vacation time squared away with your employers (haha).
See you on the flight-line.
