Lessons in Air Combat

Have you ever seen the movies Top Gun or Iron Eagle? Well, forget about everything you saw there. That was Hollywood. Here, you can learn about just what those fancy F-14 Tomcats and F-16 Falcons do in real life, among other things.

Not all the terms you encounter in the lessons will be the official ones used by Air Forces around the world, though many of them will be. What I'm trying to give you is a working knowledge of the part played by aircraft on the modern battlefield.

Depending on your level of experience, you can select from Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Lessons.
