Fleet Replacement Pilots (FRP):
Congratulations on your recent winging and selection to the HM community!
Please contact HM-12 Student Control once you receive your orders for any special instructions that may need to be addressed prior to your arrival. Student Control can be reached at (757) 444-0070.
You will report to HM-12 as a Category I Fleet Replacement Pilot (FRP) and will progress through a Ground Phase, Simulator Phase, and Flight Phase of training. You can also expect to complete SERE training in route to HM-12 and re-basing your SWIMS/PHYS "dunker" training during Ground Phase. After completing your MH-53E FRP training syllabus, you will receive orders to either the HM-14 Vanguard or HM-15 Blackhawks, both located aboard Naval Station Norfolk.
Upon arrival, you are directed to report to the HM-12 Quarterdeck, 1st deck, Hangar SP-40 to get your orders stamped. You should then proceed upstairs to the Administration Office on the 2nd deck to continue with the check-in process. Once complete, you will walk across the street to Building SP-383 (2nd Deck) to check in with the Training Department. As a reminder, your first day of any check-in should be conducted in khakis.
Please feel free to contact HM-12 with any questions or concerns. Congratulations again on earning your Wings of Gold. We look forward to flying with you. Welcome to the Sea Dragons!
