Aircraft Overview:

If a pilot were given a choice of which aircraft they would get to fly, the chosen aircraft would probably be none other than the F-22. A technical marvel, aesthetic achievement and high performer, the F-22 is the only fighter in the world today that is outclassed by none but itself, and will likely remain in this position even after similar Russian and Chinese aircraft take to the skies. Pilots of the F-22 belong to an exclusive club. This expensive and delicate aircraft requires pilots with a high level of skill, and plenty of experience, as it will be the number one air superiority asset available to the Unites States government for at least the next decade.
