94. YASSS

94. YASSS

You all know that feeling… it’s the one where the instructor happily comes over ICS saying “Alright, take us home” and you realize you made it through without a screw up. Just don’t blow it on course rules, champ.

93. STOP…Boarding Time

93. STOP…Boarding Time

We’re pretty certain they’re still mad about the government shutdown, so leave the submarines at home for at least another decade or so.

92. Killjoyride

92. Killjoyride

Doerr may be able to reach escape velocity, but he can’t escape the same type of questions that haunt every pilot…

91. NAMI WHAMY

91. NAMI WHAMY

NAMI… They are the bouncer of flight school and they live for body shaming. They’ll separate you from the pack and then decide your fate…

90. Be Gentle

90. Be Gentle

You’ve done all the prep work you can do. Everyone has heard the rumors about this IP, but he can’t be THAT bad.

88. Back in the Day

88. Back in the Day

Back in the day, linemen used captured lightning bugs to taxi us across the freshly grazed fields for takeoff…

87. Tuned Out

87. Tuned Out

After hearing the same briefs every day for months on end, one can only imagine how often instructors tune students out. Don’t despair, little doers and friends, for this is an opportunity. Mention Thor when briefing weather. See how many “meows” you can squeeze in. Throw in lyrics from your favorite song. Most importantly, never, and I mean NEVER, say unicorn. Note: Doerr Comics is not responsible for ready room unsats due to obnoxious briefs.

86. Flight School

86. Flight School

Looks like Red Knight is getting the flight school experience… Just apply the techniques and you’ll be fine, right? All the gouge and books tell you exactly what to do, so how could you possibly pluck this up? Maybe if you reread NATOPS you’ll understand flying better.

85. Book Issue

85. Book Issue

The excitement of that first trip to book issue is matched only by the abject terror experienced as you leave. The weight of the books seems small compared to the task of reading through them all. Fear not friends! Before you know it, you’ll be turning those books back in and moving on to the next school. Of course your first stop will probably be…

84. Stached

84. Stached

Very few make it through the program without having a long wait somewhere between phases of training. While waiting around, you do the one thing you can do to prove to everyone you’re an aviator: grow a mustache! Now you don’t have to tell everyone you’re a pilot, though you still will. Here’s to the original aviator comic who doesn’t need a ‘stache to prove he’s a pilot. It would hide that Top Gun gorgeous face of his and we can’t have that.

83. Intent to Kill Time

83. Intent to Kill Time

You just debriefed, cancelled, or left muster. You’re on a mental high and pumped up. The sun is shining, plenty of hours left in the day, and you’re feeling great. Somehow in your drive home you received 42 notifications on your Facegram, Instachats, Snapbooks, Tik-Taks, Grindm and Whatever app you use to meet people (we promise we won’t tell). I guess productivity is relative. Going through all that needs to happen at some point… why not do that for an hour or 7?

82. Solo Selfie

82. Solo Selfie

We are in no way promoting this activity or saying you can get away with it. But when you allegedly do, don’t go posting your selfie around. Not only do we all know you’re not supposed to, but anyone else in the flight program skips past your posted picture faster than a smoker does the tobacco cessation course. #ProtectThisAirspace

81. Avenge the Attrited

81. Avenge the Attrited

With Endgame around the corner, we couldn’t pass this up. Unfortunately, the nature of flight school requires some people to be cut, and there’s always an ebb and flow on the needs of the fleet and the numbers in the program. After you’ve assembled your study buddies and downtown groups, you are bound to have a good friend attrited. Fear not, Doerrs… They are in a happier place. Maybe with a bold pair of infinity stones, you’ll be able to make it through and avenge them.

68. Can I Join?

68. Can I Join?

All students have helmet fires, coming in all shapes and sizes. A helmet fire is a phrase which here means the inner turmoil one has inside their mind…

67. Don’t Do It

67. Don’t Do It

Here’s a shout out to all the Spouses of Student Aviators out there for keeping our Student Aviators in check and keeping it together.

61. Night Before Checkride

61. Night Before Checkride

Twas the night before Checkrides, and in each little nook
All the students were studying, every face in a book;
The pubs were tabbed and each map was laid out,
In hopes that they’d memorize each term without doubt;

60. Santa

60. Santa

I think one above MIF could get you on the nice list. Just ask your local Santa grader and he can check it twice for you.

59. Kooky Comms Pt 2

59. Kooky Comms Pt 2

They know who you are, but who can resist a snarky comment when you violate the #1 rule of Aviation? Stay cool on the radios my friends.

58. Legend Has It

58. Legend Has It

Long ago, the Aviation Gods created a universe of mystery and fear. A false reality meant to challenge the heroes daring enough to step in to the domain…

56. BASHd

56. BASHd

Let’s all be honest here… The BASH report is always going to be medium. Funny how some birds like to live dangerously and surround airfields just waiting to gift you with a PEL and incomplete flight.

53. Be Normal Pt 2

53. Be Normal Pt 2

Our corpus cousins make us look normal. I thought that was impossible.

52. Death by CAI

52. Death by CAI

Death by PowerPoint is child’s play to the ruthless monotony of the cruel flicking through CAIs. These computer aided instructions seem critical at first, conveying information you must glue to the forefront of your mind. The poor souls in primary do their best to get through and retain even a couple of the slides. Once you hit advanced, the CAIs aren’t less important, you just can’t seem to remember why you gave a pluck about them before. Just try not to cramp up while you click 4 hours of lessons down to 20 minutes.

49. MIF or Treat

49. MIF or Treat

MIF or treat, shut my beak. Comment something not too bleakIf you don’t, that’s not neat. I’ll receive one more pink sheet…

39. Primary Math

Math may not be my strong suit, but this seemed pretty simple to me… I can’t wait to watch them calculate DEGA.

38. Smonday

38. Smonday

The horrible realization that you’ve done nothing for your brief tomorrow and you shouldn’t have gone to Seville two nights in a row.

37. Be Normal

37. Be Normal

Deep in the jungles of Naval Aviation Training, Doerr and his friends are on patrol as normal until they take pink sheet fire.

36. Attrition War

Deep in the jungles of Naval Aviation Training, Doerr and his friends are on patrol as normal until they take pink sheet fire.

33. K

33. K

You prepare to text your instructor and don’t want to make a bad first impression. After a hundred revisions, you send the text and finally get a response.

32. Shattered

32. Shattered

You go into a brief thinking, there’s no way this can go wrong. Then one little upset just ruins the rest of the flight and your day.

30. A Lil’ Slow

30. A Lil’ Slow

Every squadron has its own pace of training and a “personality” is formed from that. Here with the primary training squadrons, we have our slow ones.

29. Witness Me!

29. Witness Me!

Witness my solo! The feeling when you go up by yourself. You pass if the aircraft takes off and lands. How you walk away at the end depends on you…

28. You Tell Me

28. You Tell Me

Hold all questions until the end. After everything’s been graded.

20. Phoenix

20. Phoenix

For those on the struggle bus, this one is for you.

19. Don’t You Say That

19. Don’t You Say That

The mysterious fleek. Instructors rave about it, but they also tell us how good we have it in flight school with minimal ‘sponsibilities. How we go home after a flight instead of flying another two Xs and fulfilling a billet assigned by the squadron. Come to think of it, we do have it good.

18. Replacement

18. Replacement

There’s no way I can be stressed today. Students always hope they get the “ideal” instructor that isn’t as harsh in the cockpit. Then there’s the next best thing, the “MIF Monster.” You’ll pass as long as you don’t do anything stupid, but anything you do great, it’ll be a MIF.

16. Resting Brief Face

16. Resting Brief Face

Wonder how difficult it is to live with resting brief face. RBF doesn’t sound like a fun thing to have.

13. Givin’ her all she’s got!

13. Givin’ her all she’s got!

We need more brain power! There’s just so much going on in your head, there’s gotta be more little Doerrs assigned.

12. Fam 1 Fun

12. Fam 1 Fun

It’s either you survive your first flight unscathed or you’re covered in puke. Bring ziplock bags! Just in case.

11. O-2 Seniority

11. O-2 Seniority

Based on real-life events. Coast Guard students usually come in as Lieutenant Junior Grades (O-2s) and are usually assigned as class leaders. Luckily for her, I was a 1st Lieutenant (O-2) that was in the class with her and claimed I was senior (which I was). At least she recognized 😛

10. Backseat Pilot

10. Backseat Pilot

On a flight to San Diego, I could finally be at ease without thinking about being at the controls. The pilot did ok, but there were some rough patches and I’m sure he’ll do great on his next approach.

8.5. CO’s Notes: Revealed

8.5. CO’s Notes: Revealed

There’s no way the CO would look at the comic, like it or even respond back. But he did! What made it even better was The Landing Strip found us and gave a shout out!

9. There’s No Way Pt. 2

9. There’s No Way Pt. 2

A lil’ birdy told me an Instructor told the solos “There’s no way you’re going up. There’s no way.” Only issue was that the baby birds didn’t know of Doerr Comic, so he corrected them.

8. CO’s Notes

8. CO’s Notes

Every CO is different and the one at the time always asked for one good (up) and one bad (down) about Primary flight training at VT-2. He always wrote on his notepad and we always wondered if he actually wrote in it.

7. There’s No Way

7. There’s No Way

On a bad weather day, you and your waiting buddies are constantly debating if you guys are going up. You wish for the best and think “There’s no way.”

6. Perspectives

6. Perspectives

Every big-eyed student yearns to fly. What most people don’t know is that a lot happens inside the cockpit. Once you look past the tears and yelling, flying is pretty cool though.

5. Ground School

5. Ground School

Students are expected to know everything by the time they get to the cockpit. Unfortunately, we don’t know anything.

4. Roll Call

4. Roll Call

Students are expected to know everything by the time they get to the cockpit. Unfortunately, we don’t know anything.

3. Kooky Comm Calls

3. Kooky Comm Calls

It never fails. In our head, we have the most perfect comms call ready to go, but once we activate that stupid switch the words get lost somewhere from the brain to mouth.

2. The Knights

2. The Knights

Every time there’s bad weather, you would always see a waiting table full of Doers. There was never a Red Knight at that table because they would come in, and get told to go home.

1. The Claw

1. The Claw

While waiting with others in the room, standing by or waiting for your instructor to pick you up was common. Most of the time, they didn’t wanna fly with contact students because they didn’t want to deal with newbies.

94. YASSS

94. YASSS
