They'll say different.

Then again, 111 drivers are probably better than "fighter" pilots. They did their shizzle at 600 knots and 100 feet off the deck. A Falcon driver would poop his flight suit doing that.

Would they?

I have family that flew in the FB-111 and they understand that it wasnít a FIGHTER. No different than my co-worker who flew the F-117 thinks that he flew a FIGHTER.

So if those Aardvark pilot were even better FIGHTER than the Falcon
pilots, then they make even worse civilian passenger/cargo pilots and are even bigger douche bags?

Dang....

He was bragging about his qualifications for a job at Flex.
1. Considers himself a superior pilot just like the pilot that took three attempts at a Lear 45 type as an SIC.
2. Considers compliance with FAR's a PITA.

LOL

Maybe thereís something about the O2 system in a Falcon that makes the helmets REALLY tight...

I have friends and extended family who flew in the 111 and a close friend of my wife was killed in one so I know the community a little bit. Aardvark drivers of my acquaintance never seemed to have the same ďDĒ component...

I am also speaking from experience. Having flown in fractional, charter, and airline ops for many years, crew flying is the easiest flying I have ever done. Its not that difficult. Itís unfortunate that it hurts the pride of you fellas.
I think the fact that you say "it's not that difficult", based on your transition from single seat, and the obvious assumption that makes it easy for everyone says a lot. Also the "bunch of civilians" doesn't help. From your posts on here it is pretty easy to see you are gods gift to aviation, but you probably should be aware that there is quite a few humans out there that had to work hard to adjust to a new environment.
Maybe the fact that crew flying is the easiest flying you have done says something about your F16 capabilities...

Where in your UPT class do you have to graduate if you are going straight to a guard unit? Say you were going to fly F-16's at....for $hits and giggles...Ft. Wayne. Would you need to graduate at the top or anywhere...including the bottom?
