Polish pilots allowed to train on F-35 fighter simulators in the USA

43

The Polish Air Force expects to receive the first fifth-generation F-35 fighter from the United States by 2024. Against the backdrop of such expectations, the Poles sent their military pilots to the United States for training. The American partners promised to provide support in the process of training Polish flight crews to operate the F-35A aircraft.


Recall that Warsaw and Washington signed a contract for the supply of 32 F-35 fighters to the Polish Air Force. It became known that on the basis of this contact, each such fighter would cost the Polish air force approximately $ 144 million. The amount of the contract also includes training of the Polish military, including 24 pilots and 90 technicians.

The first group of Polish Air Force personnel is already in the United States and is undergoing flight training. This information is confirmed by the main command of the Polish armed forces.

According to the latest information, Polish pilots are at the Fort Werth training base in Texas, which is logistically owned by Lokheed Martin. At the moment, Polish pilots underwent the appropriate instructions, got acquainted with the parameters and technical characteristics of American fighters, and after that they were allowed to train on F-35 simulators.

Jereniusz Novak, commander of the 2nd tactical wing aviation Polish Air Force:

Our pilots got acquainted with the cockpit of the F-35A fighter, the tactics of using such combat aircraft, received the necessary knowledge, which could later be extended to other pilots in Poland.

The training officers in Texas were US Air Force instructor pilots from Luke Base in Arizona.

    Even last week, 2 concerned US generals expressed the opinion that the United States, against the background of the arrival of the latest 5th generation aircraft and the large number of 4+ generation aircraft with Russia and China, has an absolutely scanty fleet of F-22 and F-35, plans to equip the Polish Air Force with F- 35 are as foggy as the Ukrainian Air Force! And the stealth and other performance characteristics of their pseudo 5th generation have not been proven in battle and have been repeatedly opened by the radars of Russia and China.

            And in which ones? Jewish strikes over the forest over the mountains from Lebanese territory? Did f22 fight a lot there? Did they at least shoot down su-27s there?

          The whole world saw the F-22 shoot down alien starships. True, in the same film they themselves fell from the sky like peas.

      But the Jews are bombing in Syria and Iraq what they want and when they want. And the Syrian air defenses, although they are equipped with Russian equipment that does not have analogs in the world, do not even see where they are coming from.

        Storyteller, strikes on Syria are delivered from Lebanese airspace, hiding behind the folds of the terrain, but they do not strike at Iraq at all, because their masters are there. But planning bombs and missiles are shot down regularly, but the main thing is to throw fakes and run away.

          A strike was struck at the border crossing between Syria and Iraq, moreover, exactly when an Iranian caravan with weapons for the Hezbalons was going there. And this is exactly from the opposite side of Syria in relation to Lebanon. Do you want to say that bombs were released from Lebanese territory?

            Since when should the Syrian s-300s and shells cover the Persians? And where, by the way, are the shells and s-300 on the border of Syria and Iraq? The Americans are in charge there. Well, yes, the fairy tale is already crumbling, then right across the territory of Iraq, but in fact, somewhere in the border zone, where muddy types are sitting. Well, yes, apparently they only strike with bombs, long-range missiles do not exist.

            Have you seen a photo of the results? Full on different resources, the impression is that they were smashed to the Chips, the market. We have such stalls in 90 in all cities. And the Israelis could easily fly along the border with Jordan, where the Syrians have a checkpoint in the air defense. How did the ice melt in Chicago on the Great Lakes? There won't be a $ 1M salmon show this year?

        At the current level of relations between Putin and Nitanyahu, there can be no talk of any real opposition to Israel. Therefore, the F-35 has no real combat successes.

    I walked one winter through the market. A lonely frozen Azerbaijani with a bunch of oranges frozen like a stone at a completely bargain price. It is clear that they no longer contain vitamins or sweets. His aunt stopped in front of him - her meager price stalled her. The merchant, without much hope, showing her the goods, says the phrase: Vo! Look how round!
    Why am I doing this? Know how to sell guys. For the Poles, this is not $ 5 billion paid for an incomprehensible, questionable and completely dependent on the seller equipment. This is entry into the "club of the golden billion", this is the status of "friend of the hegemon", the trust of the sovereign and the groundwork for a high-tech future. Know how to sell.

      The Poles have already tried to sell Fort Trump to the United States. Now they don't know what to do. Renamed Fort Biden? So grandfather will soon try on a wooden mac. Rename it directly to Fort Camel? Necomilfo.
      So if he does learn to sell, it’s not from the Poles. You can only learn from the Poles a long savory lisa. Here Banderlog is learning from them. Let's remember Bidongate.

    admitted to training

    Call me any bore you like, because of Soviet education and reading Soviet books, this "allowed to" is extremely painful to the eye.
    In the blessed one it was "admitted to." For exams, for management, for flight, etc.
    To be honest, he looks like a Ukrainian nedosurzhik: "call the SBU."

        To everyone who says "before" instead of "to" and "s" instead of "from".
        Ukrainian is the local dialect of the Russian language. The same as the balachka or the Vologda dialect. As well as the Belarusian dialect.

    144 million apiece. Something is unrealistic. The link costs half a yard ... also to buy prodigies for them.

      Of course I misunderstood. This is all rogue thinking. The balance of prices is different. Here look. If the salary of a worker in a factory is $ 500, and in America it is $ 5, then the price of the aircraft should be divided by 000. And then a slightly different picture is obtained. Well, or less than $ 10 per hour in Rashka, and $ 1 per hour in America.

    They are preparing "fighting meat" for the next European meat grinder for the interests of the overseas "good uncle". They are in a hurry, they understand that after 2025 it will be too late to "drink Borjomi". In the last war, the Psheks fell, with their servility, under the kneading of their best allies, as they believed, the Germans. Now, with equal zeal, they are striving to mix their best allies, as they believe, the FSA. When will they understand that this will be the last pan-European quarrel with Russia, in which the USA is ready to sacrifice all of Europe and only a couple of its brigades, and build their post-apocalyptic world fascism on the European ruins, and already without covering up the fig leaf of democracy. fool

    The Polish Air Force expects to receive the first fifth-generation F-35 fighter from the United States by 2024. Against the backdrop of such expectations, the Poles sent their military pilots to study in the United States.

    And not early in three years then? Flight skills are so ... Not the ability to swim. Forgotten. Even the skills of using a real plane are eroded, and here is a simulator.
    The American partners promised to provide support in the process of training Polish flight crews to operate the F-35A aircraft.

    And what - there was an option that the classes, the simulator would show and wave the hand "Further on ..."?

    Frankly speaking, the inaction of the main sponsors of Poland - Germany and France - is surprising. Despite the fact that they have their own excellent fighters, Poland spends their money on military equipment from the United States. This is outright spit.
