TV)--Each year, U.S. Air Force first-assignment instructor pilots (FAIPs) from the pilot-training bases gather for flying competition, leadership seminars and lots and lots of team building. Team Vance was the host, and the overall competition winner, for the gathering known as FAIP FLAG 2021, which was held at Nellis Air Force Base, in Las Vegas. The 300 pilots had five chances to take home a prize for their base. They competed in a spot landing, time on target, in-flight selfie and the coveted crud tournament award. For the flying competitions, there was a winner for each of the three training aircraft. All of these were tabulated into an overall wing winner. After a full day of competition between the bases, Vance emerged as the overall wing winner of FAIP FLAG 2021. Congratulations to Team Vance.
