There are no second places in aerial combat. Fighter pilots have perhaps the most dangerous job of all pilots – engaging other aircraft in order to shoot them down, or flying over enemy territory to drop bombs. Learning to master flying such a complex jet is only part of the job. Ultimately, a fighter jet is no more than a weapons platform, and the pilot must be better than his or her rivals in using the jet's weapons. This book will examine what it takes to become a fighter pilot; what the job is like; the jets and equipment required; and what it’s like to fly at twice the speed of sound in pursuit of an enemy.
