January 2014:  Congratulations to Cypress College alumnus and former Flying Team Captain Chris Hicks for earning his wings by successfully completing undergraduate pilot training with the United States Air Force!  Not only did he graduate, but he also received the Distinguished Graduate Award. This award only goes to one person in each track, and Chris received the award for the transport and tanker track of pilots.  From here, Chris goes to Little Rock Arkansas, where he will start flying the C-130J Hercules. He will be there for approximately six months were he will learn the systems, emergency procedures and operations of this large for engine turboprop aircraft. He'll be checked out in both the right seat and left seat of this 175,000 pound aircraft!  After that Chris will return to his unit which is based at Point Magu Naval Air Station here in Southern California where he'll be flying for both the Air National Guard and Aviator Flight Training.
