As a reminder, a typical human anus can stretch up to 7 inches in diameter before tearing occurs.

I think this Navy instructor pilot's going to have that put to the test once he lands.

This pilot will be told to copy a phone number very soon

If you're curious what it sounds like when this happens, VASAviation has a different intercept near Philly where a *really* oblivious Piper driver didn't notice his new armed escort

Generally, when you're being referred to as a Target of Interest by someone with a call sign Noble 1 you've really, really farked up.

What's the phone number for?
What is a "block altitude" that was requested by the military?

The phone number is an FAA number for the pilot to call so they can question him about why he went where he wasn't supposed to.

The block altitude permission clears an altitude range to allow the interceptor to manoeuvre around the target without traffic conflicts.

I think a good gift for the President would be a chocolate revolver. And since he is so busy, you'd probably have to run up to him real quick and give it to him.

"was" an army instructor, is the correct tense.

A bit more context- being asked to copy "a phone number to call" is a dreaded phrase for pilots.  It means you've done something bad enough that you need to report it to the controlling tower.  Depending on just how bad you might get a talking to or not be flying again for a while

One other fun note- Noble 1 requesting an expedited climb from 2200 to 12k.  Airplanes can request this if they have some reason they want to get higher faster than normal, but with an F-16 and block altitude clearance it basically means he got to hit the afterburner and go vertical the entire way back up.

It's part of the aero/mechanical engineering program.  They also have a section for the jump jump team and helicopters for the generals but those last two are run by warrant officers.  The Cessnas are flown by instructors, usually CPTs or MAJs.

The Army flies helicopters. You don't start with those. They also fly some fixed wing aircraft for VIPs and for their Golden Knights parachute team.

Army aviators do start with helicopters.  The training aircraft that they start on now is the LUH-72.  After that, the transition to their advanced aircraft. Army fixed wing aviators transition to fixed wing after finishing their advanced aircraft.

But those are warrant officers, not command officers, and flight school for them is in Alabama.

Warrant officer and commissioned officers go to the same flight school in Alabama.  No one comes out of West Point with an army certification to fly aircraft unless they went in with one.

West Point is one of the few places that has a warrant officer command position in charge of the flight section there.

Because the Army still has an "air corp"
Getting somebody trained for basic airmanship would be handy.
Then they go to flight school.
The Army does have a certain amount of fixed wing aircraft. But even their rotary aircraft pilots have to know how to interface with civilian ATC.

Aviation units do have instructor pilots, however, it either means they are a commissioned officer with duty at West Point or they are mistaken and actually mean Fort Rucker, the home of Army aviation.
