Air Force Reserve Col. Christopher Zidek, left, 413th Flight Test Group commander, speaks with U.S. Air Force Col. Ryan Blake, U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School commandant, Sep. 11, 2018, at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. The USAF TPS trains Air Force pilots, navigators and engineers on how to conduct flight test and generate data needed to carry out test missions. The 370th Flight Test Squadron, a geographically separated unit of the 413th FTG, has supported the USAF TPS at Edwards by providing class instructors and even a temporary deputy commandant during one of the unit’s transition periods. Zidek met with Blake to further strengthen their working relationship. (U.S. Air Force photo by Jamal D. Sutter)
