Voss Earns USAF Pilot Wings

Tim Voss, #1093, recently graduated from Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training (SUPT) at Columbus AFB, Mississippi, pinning on the wings of an Air Force Pilot. Tim’s path to those prized pilot’s wings shows how perseverance and hard work can pay off; after being denied a pilot slot while in AFROTC, Tim accepted an assignment as a communications officer following his commissioning in 1994. Less than a year later, he was accepted for Air Battle Manager training, earning his ABM wings 18 months later. Then in late 1998, following deployments to Saudi Arabia and Turkey in support of no-fly enforcement operations over Iraq as an AWACS crewmember, his dream came true as he was selected to attend SUPT, the second career field change in his brief Air Force career. Tim will fly the largest aircraft in the Air Force inventory, the C-5B Galaxy, out of Dover AFB, Delaware. 30 Aug 2000
