Courtney Dollard, left, religious affairs specialist, sits next to Chief Warrant Officer 3 Shawn Linnean, a CH-47F Chinook maintenance test pilot assigned to H Company, 1st Battalion, 214th Aviation Regiment, 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, during orientation training in a CH-47 Chinook helicopter simulator Sept. 17. Linnean served as one of three instructors who provided familiarization training to members of the unit ministry teams of USAG Ansbach, 12th CAB and the 3rd Infantry Division Rotational Aviation Battalion during the day. Chief Warrant Officer 3 Adrian Barajas, AH-64D Apache instructor pilot, and Chief Warrant Officer 4 Paul Rauscher, UH-60L Black Hawk maintenance test pilot, provided instruction on their respective aircraft. After an orientation briefing, each UMT member took a turn in the pilot’s seat of each aircraft under the watchful eye of the instructor. The purpose was to help members of the USAG Ansbach and 12th CAB Unit Ministry Teams realize the scope and breadth of aviation operations. (Photo by Chaplain (Lt. Col.) R.
