JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas -- Gen. Jeffrey L. Harrigian, United States Air Forces Europe and United States Air Forces Africa commander, visited Detachment 24 and Pilot Training Next here June 24, 2019, to learn more about how AETC is exploring and prototyping a pilot training environment that integrates various technologies to produce pilots in a learning-focused manner.

Pilot Training Next (PTN) is part of Air Education and Training Command’s initiative to “reimagine” how the command delivers learning to Airmen, focused on how Airmen learn and uses emerging technology to train them better, faster and foster deeper learning. Technologies include virtual reality, artificial intelligence and data analytics, which can be tailored to the training environment and individual student.

PTN offers students the opportunity to learn in a collaborative, learner-centric environment, in line with AETC’s redesigned Continuum of Learning model.
