Finally, the :] Service Test Division (ST) aircraft and personnel were later involved in the Fleet Introductory Program (FIP), wh ich trained the first squadron, ils pilots, and ground crews scheduled 10 operate the new aircraft.

A maximum force of only 40 pounds is required to move the stick fully forward when the airplane is trimmed full nose-up and even in a weil developed spin full anti-spin rudder requires only 160 to 200 pounds. Therefore, there are no unmanageable forces involved in affecting satisfactory spin recoveries. It is not essential that power be reduced after entry into a spin but the reduction of power to idle reduces the altitude loss per turn. If, at any time a pilot in a spin becomes confused, the best thing for him to do is to release all controls, provided that he has not trimmed into a turn prior to spin entry.

Electronic Test (ET) was responsible for all the avionics equipment. Armament Test (AT) evaluated the aircraft as a weapons platform.
