OVERVIEW



Since the rise of aircraft in warfare, the training component has grown to become a well-established portion of any air service. Air forces are essentially only as good as their training and this, coupled with field experience, has proven the difference in many-a-conflict particularly in the modern setting. Today, training of pilots and systems operators is handled through basic, intermediate, and advanced platforms (as well as simulators) which provide graduated levels of experience - all equally important to any modern fighting force. Trainers are a basic, often overlooked, component to any one air power but are of critical importance and, as such, the GFP ranking includes them. Training platforms on order (heading into the next year) are not taken into account for this listing. The listing also includes helicopter trainers where possible.

The data presented below is through 2018.
