Columbus AFB 48th Flying Training Squadron T-1 poster art.
The 48th Flying Training Squadron (48 FTS) is part of the 14th Flying Training Wing based at Columbus Air Force Base, Mississippi. It operates T-1 Jayhawk aircraft conducting flight training. The squadron is one of the oldest in the Air Force, being formed during World War I as the 48th Aero Squadron on 4 August 1917. Currently the squadron specializes in the tanker and airlift track of specialized undergraduate pilot training (UPT). Students receive at least 159 hours of flight instruction in the T-1 Jayhawk where they learn air refueling procedures, tactical navigation, airdrop, and advanced navigation. Upon completion of this phase, students earn the aeronautical rating of pilot and receive their Air Force wings.
Columbus Air Force Base is located approximately 9 miles north of Columbus, Mississippi. The host unit at Columbus is the 14th Flying Training Wing assigned to the Air Education and Training Command and their mission is to provide specialized undergraduate pilot training for U.S. Air Force and allied officers. Columbus AFB was established in 1941 as Air Corps Advanced Flying School, Columbus, Mississippi and has been training Air Force pilots since World War II. About half the pilots in the Air Force today went through basic and primary flight training at Columbus, home to the busiest military air traffic control facility in the world.
