    The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement)

    One of the reasons why the Snow Birds are so spectacular is because of the Tutor. If they switched to the Hornet, it would be an entirely different show.

    The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement)

    There's two scenarios that could play out. Either they down-select to 2 bidders, and allow the infrastructure teams to focus design efforts on the down-select bidders, with some risk (or extra cost) until an agreement is made with the top-bidder. Or, decision to down-select to 1 bidder (the...

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but what I think you’re saying is that another aircraft, like say the F-35, may require specialized AMSE that takes up more space. The diagram I saw had these aircraft pretty close together, so if was probably a servicing/storage hangar where aircraft are towed in and...

    I found the information on DWAN intranet that they’re building the facilities to be able to fit the largest airframe. The 3D images included were Super Hornets. Message me your last name and initials and I can send you the link from SharePoint if you’re curious.

    I wouldn't say it should depend on their opinion, but have it taken into consideration. I do understand what you're saying though and agree with you. I just want some F-35s already.

    Right now I believe he's on the Future Fighter team, and he has experience in the CF-18 Hornet and the F/A-18E Super Hornet. Getting him some exposure (not sure how much would be necessary or what experience per se) on the F-35A and he would be able to bring more insight and knowledge from...

    What would be good I think is if they had a member of the RCAF fly in both the F/A-18E and F-35A to bring some more perspective and non-biased opinion. Someone like Captain Chris Swartz.

    I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with Billie Flynn. I just listened to him on Episode 121 of the Fighter Pilot Podcast "What's up with the F-35?", and in that podcast he made the analogy of 5th Gen vs 4th Gen (or 4.5) to a Smart Phone vs Flip Phone. In that podcast he mentioned his blog on the...
