By Capt. Cindy Piccirillo U.S. NORAD Region-1st Air Force (Air Forces Northern) Public Affairs

Lt. Gen. Marc Sasseville, Continental U.S. NORAD Region-1st Air Force (Air Forces Northern) commander, flew an F-16 Fighting Falcon for the F-16 Senior Officer Course, hosted by the 149th Fighter Wing at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland recently.
The four-week course, designed to requalify experienced F-16 fighter pilots, focused on advanced handling characteristics, tactical formation and instrument-flying procedures.
Sasseville also regained his air-air refueling currency during the course along with flying basic fighter maneuvers.
The general was required to requalify in the fighter jet based on his roles and responsibilities as the CONR-1 AF (AFNORTH) Commander.
