Do fighter pilots get thier own new helmet and mask fresh off the shelf when they are recruited?
I have always wondered how they have enough and keep them clean.
@speedbird203 may be able to answer your questions.
What does he know?
Read his bio! He seems to know this stuff :)
Ok yes he probobly knows.😂
Doesn’t this create a health issue?
Using the same mask and the same helmet and things like that.
So when you join you squadron you get a brand new helmet and get to customize it?
Very true. Now you were in the army for a while correct?
Ok nice. Now I am interested in either Navy or Airforce. What branch gets more flight time?
I’m going to try to fly with the navy.
I’m more leaning toward USAF.
We get the F-22! Also we aren’t gone from family for months unless we go over seas.
My grandpa, dad, and uncle all where in the navy. Also if I fly p-8s, it would be easier to get in an airline. It would be cool to fly the growler too but I don’t like waiting in line forever for food and being at sea for 6 months.
Thats my point in the Air Force I might get to go home every night!
Personally I’d prefer to fly the F-16. The newer jets rely a lot on computers, which take the pilot out of the equation, which I’m not a fan off
(*caught Airbus *cough) But that’s just my 2 cents
Actually the F-22 is only very computerized within the weapons system. Otherwise I don’t think it even has AP!
