Abstract:

This study investigates the relationship between peacetime F-16 training and expected combat operations. The F-l6 is the primary interdiction platform in the United States Air Force. F-l6 pilots fly peacetime training sorties to maintain proficiency, develop tactics and complete evaluations. The training activities accomplished on these missions are designed to prepare the pilot for successful combat employment. A training program ensures each pilot completes the necessary amount of sorties and events to achieve combat ready status. This study analyzes the components of the peacetime training program and their overall applicability for future conflict. The study encompasses the entire training program from higher headquarters directives down to specific flying sorties.
