This is a preliminary study of excellence of the Korean Air Force fighter squadron. The study identifies the attributes associated with outstanding fighter squadrons based upon interviews with fighter pilots who are currently enrolled as students at the Naval Postgraduate School. After reviewing environmental, structural, and cultural backgrounds of fighter squadron of the Korean Air Force, the qualities of excellence evident from the interviews are described and compared with those of the U.S. Air Force fighter squadrons.
