Wolf Ian Thielmann

Son of Jean and Alan Thielmann of Goleta and grandson of Mrs. James (Marion) Thielmann of Santa Barbara was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant and received a degree in Systems Engineering from the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado on May 29, 2013. During his four years at the Academy, Wolf was an instructor pilot in the soaring program, and received his jump wings. During his senior year, he was chosen to participate as a systems engineer in a capstone competition funded by Boeing. This project pitted all three military colleges (West Point, Annapolis and the United States Air Force Academy) against each other to design a search and rescue aircraft for the year 2045. The competition was won by the 15 student USAFA team. Wolf graduated on the Superintendent?s list for academic, military and athletic excellence. He is currently on a short break before he begins his pilot training at Vance Air Force Base, Oklahoma. Wolf attended Dos Pueblos High School where he graduated with honors from their International Baccalaureate program in 2009.
