Fighter Chicks

Posted by Rob Longenecker on July 18th, 2008

The days of “Kick the tires, light the fire, first one up’s the leader” are long gone, but all the things it takes to be a fighter pilot remain, except one – mass quantities of excess testosterone.

One great thing about the military aviation community is that performance wins the day and how you look only counts for the squadron photo.

Student Pilots make it through training or they wash out. Few sneak by the unforgiving environment for long. I know what the Naval Aviation Training Command was like when I was a Navy flight instructor - skills and good headwork won the day.

Now women are joining the men in the Navy, Marine Corps (same training background) and the Army and Air Force. 30 years ago the guys scoffed at the possibility. Now it’s a reality. The one thing I’m sure of, these “Fighter Chicks” wouldn’t be strapping on these high performance jet aircraft if they hadn’t proven they have what it takes.

Bravo Zulu to the gals!
