Middleton completes pilot training
Air Force 2nd Lt. Nicholas Middleton has graduated from Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, N.C.
This 54-week pilot training program begins with a six-week preflight phase of academics and physical training to prepare students for flight. The second phase, primary training, is conducted in the single-engine, turboprop T-6A Texan II. Primary training takes approximately 23 weeks and includes 254 hours of ground instruction, 27 hours in the flight simulator and 89 hours in the T-6A aircraft.
After primary training, students select, by order of merit, advanced training in the fighter-bomber or airlift-tanker track. Training for the fighter track is done in the T-38C Talon, a tandem-seat, twin-engine supersonic jet. The airlift-tanker track uses the T-1A Jayhawk, the military version of a multi-place Beech Jet 400 business jet. Both tracks are approximately 26 weeks and are designed to best train pilots for successful transition to their follow-on aircraft and missions.
Middleton is the son of Robert and Georgia Middleton of Summerville, and brother of Andrae Middleton of Stem, N.C., Maurice Middleton of Summerville, Latonya Rowan of Fayetteville, N.C., and Tasha Mcteer of Walterboro.
He is a 2006 graduate of Summerville High School, Summerville. He earned a bachelor’s degree in 2010 from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, Fla.
