There were problems with the training of pilots for fighter jets in Britain

There were problems with the training of pilots for fighter jets in Britain

 

The UK is facing problems in training fighter pilots.


According to the source, pilot training opportunities are in crisis due to malfunctioning aviation, the need for more instructors and the flow of foreigners for training.


Royal Air Force recruits are reportedly spending months, sometimes years, on flight simulators instead of combat aircraft.


At the end of July, the British Air Force suspended non-essential Typhoon fighter flights. This decision was made after it became known about the “technical problem that may affect the safe operation of the ejection seats” of the fighters. It is noted that this also affected the aerobatic team of the British Air Force “Red Arrows”.
