Two Ukrainian military pilots have arrived in the United States. They are stationed there and will be tested in flight simulators to see how long it would take to train them to fly various types of US military aircraft, including the F-16 fighter jets requested by the Ukrainians.
CNN explains this and says the pilots are at a military base in Tucson, Arizona. According to CNN, a source within the Department of Defense said that it is a “conventional operation that is part of the military cooperation between the United States and Ukraine”.
With this, it will be easier to help Ukrainian pilots become even better pilots, and it will also be easier to advise them on how they can develop their own abilities.
Pilots will not fly American aircraft on this tour, but will use flight simulators.
