Sheppard AFB Investigating Cheating Allegations

By  | 

Officials at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls are investigating whether some officers in the pilot training program -- cheated.

An investigation started November third into possible academic misconduct by officers from the 80th Flying Training Wing.

Base spokesman Major Michael Young declined to provide specifics.

Young says such inquiries usually take about two weeks before details are known.

The Office of Special Investigations, which is steering the inquiry, would not comment.

The 80th Flying Training Wing conducts the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training Program.

It's the world's only internationally manned and managed undergraduate pilot training program.
