In April of 2007, I departed Charleston AFB for a temporary duty assignment at Randolph AFB, TX, a course known as Jet D, transition training in the T-38C. From there I moved to Edwards AFB, CA in June and joined Class 07B for the USAF Test Pilot School.  I graduated in June 2008 with a Master of Science degree in Flight Test Engineering.  Additionally, I received Level I Test and Evaluation certification and Level I Systems Engineering (Systems
