...the A-7 Corsair pilots are the best low-flyers in the HAF. @ TargetAP
“Our job can be difficult and dangerous if the leading aircraft have not completely suppressed the enemy’s air defence [SEAD],” added Capt Koutridis. @ TargetAP
338 MDV’s primary role is strike and so most of their flights are at low-level. Lt Col Kazantzoglou explained that the mission planned depends on the primary objective; “If it is just to assess the pilot’s low-flying skills, then it will be low, low, low. @ TargetAP
“The whole course prepares a pilot for flying at low-level. It includes situational awareness, avoiding mountains, avoiding the weather and reacting to emergency situations such as bird strikes." @ TargetAP
335 Fighter Squadron flying the advanced multi-role F-16C/D Block 52M Fighting Falcons primarily in the air-to-ground strike role report that only 60% of their flights are at low-level. @ TargetAP
