    The S3 ArmA Aviation Center of Excellence is conducting fixed-wing flight training in the month of December. This training is open to all troopers of the Regiment, regardless of MOS. We will be running the Ground School, Basic Fixed Wing and newly available Advanced Fixed-Wing courses. While these courses must be completed in order, they may be done over any period of time that suits the individual student - there is no time-out period. After completing each course, the student must pass each evaluation one on one with an Instructor Pilot.
