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) 322-9393.
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. If you do not have an intermediate stop at SERE in your orders you can expect to complete SERE after graduation.
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. 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!
