"The process is underway - and this is the most important thing": the Air Force has shared information about the training of Ukrainian pilots on F-16

When will Ukrainian soldiers carry out combat missions on F-16?
Our pilots are already training in the sky

The training of Ukrainian Armed Forces pilots on F-16 fighters is proceeding as planned. Currently, our military personnel are already undergoing training to fly American combat aircraft directly in the sky.

This information was shared by the spokesperson for the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Yurii Ihnat, during a telethon on November 10. "The training is proceeding as scheduled. There may not be much information available, but the process is in progress, which is the most crucial aspect," he stated.

Ihnat explained that the Allies prefer not to disclose all the training details, but it is known that Ukrainian pilots are already receiving training to fly F-16s in the air.

"Our partners may not be really  willing to provide detailed information  about the training process, but pilots are already undergoing F-16 training in the air, albeit not all of them. Some pilots are currently receiving instruction in the sky from combat aircraft instructors. So, everything is proceeding according to plan," noted the military spokesperson.

Ihnat also emphasized, "We must wait, defend our country, and safeguard our airspace."
