What skills be sure no matter if a fighter pilot is skilled? Surveys of professional pilots printed that, whereas flying time is part of the adventure wanted for either strive against and employees jobs, different issues also are vital. The Air strength must degree and credits varieties of experience-including time spent in complicated simulator systems-when revising its definitions of pilot adventure.

Downtown” refers, of course, to downtown Baghdad, where the Iraqi air defenses were concentrated and should have been the most effective. 13 The sites visited included the Integrated Defense Systems Division of the Boeing Company, St. Louis, Missouri; the NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California; and AFRL’s Warfighter Readiness Research Division, Mesa, Arizona. 14 One reviewer notes that, in the current environment, simulator training sometimes has better “fidelity” to wartime training than do live sorties.

S. Air Force fighter force was strong because several initiatives had come to fruition over the preceding 15 years. Along with the new jets and increased flying hours came new training initiatives—most of which were aimed at the high end of the training spectrum. Although there were many such initiatives, four stand out as the most important: the Red Flag initiative, the aggressor program, the addition of air combat maneuvering and instrumentation (ACMI), and an emphasis on the use of gun cameras and cockpit video recorders.

This means that most pilots who actually require less training are the experienced instructor pilots. 15 To relate these issues to simulator training in advanced facilities, it will be instructive to look at the training policies of the major airlines. It is worth noting that the major airlines never use aircraft equipment solely to provide live training for their pilots. The very first live flight a newly hired pilot makes will be a regularly scheduled flight carrying revenue passengers or cargo.
