F-16 Ukraine

The US is working with Ukrainian pilots in the United States to determine how long it would take to train them to fly F-16 fighter jets, three sources briefed on the matter told CNN.

Two Ukrainian pilots are currently at a military base in the US having their skills tested in flight simulators to see how much time they would need to learn to fly various US military aircraft, including F-16s.

A US military official told reporters traveling with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to the Middle East that the Ukrainian pilots were in Tucson, Arizona, for "a familiarization event" that he described as a "routine activity as part of our military-to-military dialogue with Ukraine."

"The familiarization event is essentially a discussion between the Air Force personnel and an observation of how the US Air Force operates," the official said.

"This event allows us to better help Ukrainian pilots become more effective pilots and better advise them on how to develop their own capabilities.

The pilots will not be flying any platforms during this event but they will be using a simulator during portions of their visit."

The official added that "there are no updates to provide regarding F-16s to Ukraine" and there are no immediate plans to increase the number of Ukrainian pilots in the US.

While there is no indication at this time that flight training is underway, the step suggests the US has not completely closed the door on providing F-16s.

    I made this plane because I liked the scheme, it has nothing to do with politics. I also have no preferences with nations, I only like fighters, with the exception of the F4 and the Mig21 are my favorites.

    @RicardoACE This is a nice build! It kind of reminds me of a video that Growling Sidewinder (a DCS World player) made a while ago

    incredible! Sincere thanks from Ukraine. I've been trying to make similar, but I'm still a beginner and haven't reached that level yet.

    @MrCOPTY So you send me a DCS short movie instead of real proof on why the MIG-29 is "good"?

    That does not prove anything at all.

    Dont waste someone's time for a video i've already watched so many times.

    The MIG-29 isnt a god of all fighter jets.
