Fly with a Canadian Air Force CF-18 to LAX

We’re ‘aboot’ 10 miles out on the ILS.

Most of a fighter training program is centered around learning systems, flying the jet and perfecting offensive and defensive maneuvers.  It is still important though to learn how to know how to navigate long distances and integrate into high density airspace.  The Canadian Air Force program incorporates cross-country training flights from their base at Cold Lake, Canada to LAX.  While airline pilots are used to such busy airspace, it is a challenge for a new student to taxi at such a busy airport with such intense radio chatter.  These trips build students’ confidence and skills necessary for deployments worldwide. One thing is for certain, these guys are pros in everything they do.
