The 706th Fighter Wing

 



Real-World Mission Profiles

Fighter Pilot Basics
Here you'll learn basic skills such as how to take-off and land, using the HUD and flight instruments for navigation. You'll also learn essential combat tactics, which will come in handy later.

Air-to-Air Combat
It's time to learn how to Dog Fight. Now your palms will begin getting sweaty as you turn and bank, drop chaff and flares, and engage in head-to-head air combat with simulated or real enemy aircraft.

Advanced Strike Missions
This is where it all comes together. It's now your task to plan and execute a strike mission through heavily guarded enemy airspace. First you have to tangle with enemy fighters, then you have to keep your head on a swivel to watch out for SAMs (Surface to Air Missiles). A guy could get hurt doing this!
