Who We Are
Welcome to Military Flight Tests. I’m Dave Mangello, one of three writers for MFT. In truth, we created the concept of MFT over a beer one night. Mike looked at me and said “Dave, do you remember when you took the ASTB?” I quickly replied, “I try not to.”
It was on that night that we realized the biggest struggle we had back then was two-fold:
- There was no complete set of information about the three service flight tests: AFOQT, ASTB, and SIFT
- Expensive study guides that tried to cover all three in one book were the only real option.
So, the next morning and after a couple of Alka Seltzer, we got to work!
What you see before you is our pooling of knowledge and hopes of delivering something that we didn’t have when we had to take those three highly competitive exams that, to this day, had a significant impact on our careers and lives.
Although this isn’t perfect, we’ll do our best to ensure we provide the most up-to-date information. If you have any questions or corrections, make sure to hit us up on our Contact Us page.
