A student pilot in the Aggressor Aerial Attack Instructor Course was on his first transition sortie in a Northrop F-5E Tiger II aggressor aircraft. The instructor pilot flew chase position in another F-5E. The flight accomplished a normal departure to the training area which was located north of Nellis Air Force Base. Traffic pattern stalls and several aerobatic maneuvers were to be accomplished during the mission. During maneuvering in the working area, the student pilot's aircraft went out of control. He safely ejected and was recovered by a USAF helicopter.
