Abstract : This text was part of a graduation lecture at the test pilot school at Edwards AFB. The students were remined that " ...the fighters, bombers, trainers and transports of tomorrow, along with their bombs, rockets, bullets, lasers, and particle beam transmorgifiers, are going to be tested and passed/failed by YOU. The good parts and the bad parts. The things you absolutely love and the things you didn't notice until the hardware gets out to the guys in the field. All of it will be under Y0UR microscope. All of it will appear on YOUR flight card or on the flight cards of the folks who work for you. Since what the Washingtonians will pay for is based on your reports on the performance, suitability, spec compliance, reliability, and supportability of this expensive, state of the art equipment, it's somewhat important that you soon-to-be Test Directors, Squadron Commanders, and Test Managers understand the whole big picture. Logistics is part of that BIG PICTURE."
