From 16-20 April 2012, flight testers, aircrew and engineers from as far away as Finland and as close as the Air Force Flight Test Center at Edwards AFB gathered at the AERO Institute in Palmdale, CA for EO/IR sensor system training conducted by world-renown expert, John L. Minor. The Fundamentals of Electro-Optics and Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors short course is quickly becoming one of the most popular courses in the White Eagle Aerospace line-up. This marks the third time Mr. Minor has taught his FEOIR course in the past 13 months and second time the course has been hosted at the AERO Institute.
After a full week of instruction, course participants were divided into test teams to work on a capstone EO/IR flight test exercise that allowed them to practice real world applications of academics learned during the week. All team successfully completed the exercises, provided correct answers and passed the course with flying colors. Regarding course attendees, Mr. Minor remarked, “This class was an extremely bright and engaged group. We are honored to welcome these outstanding students to the growing list of FEOIR course graduates.” More photos from the course can be found on WEA’s Facebook page.
