Yes I got that. You must think I am an idiot
No, jokes aside
I was just confused by that comment
I´m pretty sure it´s me but those two quotes sound contradicting, that´s why I asked again.
Yes in that there are no trainer F-22s, A-10s, or F-35s. That means after they start training in them they go straight from the simulator to solo
flight in active jets.
= There are no trainers for those NOW. When they start training in them (on simulator) they go straight to solo flights in active jets (F22, A-10,
F35). I read it like they train on it and because there is no trainer now, they will train in F35s for example.
Not just the F-35, but the F-22 and future fighters as well. They'll integrate the systems as best as they can simulate for the aircraft they're going
to fly afterwards.
= They are building a trainer aircraft and integrate the systems so they can train on that.
There is no trainer aircraft for the F35 so as of now, they go straight from simulator to F35.
They will not use another old aircraft to train, until the "official" trainer aircraft is finished, they will take the risk and train directly on
Bear in mind, I do not know if they retrain for example F16 pilots to F35 or if the vast majority are freshmans. Although, I would assume they do not
sit a freshman who never flew, into a F35.
