The mission of the National Test Pilot School is to educate and train military and civilian aviation personnel so that each graduate enhances aviation knowledge, increases flight test competency, and improves aviation safety world-wide.

Our mission is primarily accomplished through our professional courses and masters programs that provide graduate level flight test education and training to test pilots and flight test engineers who learn to safely and effectively plan, execute, and report on flight test programs for their military or civilian organizations.

Our mission is further accomplished through NTPS' continuing education programs, flight test-related research programs, and flight test support activities that increase competency, safety, and the breadth of knowledge in the aviation and flight test professions.

Values

NTPS is committed to our core values of honesty, integrity, objectivity, safety, teaching, mentoring, teamwork, and the continuous pursuit of knowledge and excellence.
