I’d like to introduce Paco Chierici as the new editor for Fighter Sweep. Paco has been a regular contributor to Fighter Sweep and will now serve in the role of editor. He will be a great addition to the Force 12 media team in this capacity as he has experience as both a military and commercial pilot.

Paco Chierici has been an aviator his entire adult life. He graduated from Boston University and was commissioned through the Navy ROTC. He flew A-6E Intruders and F-14A Tomcats during his 10 year active duty career. He flew the F-5 Tiger II for a further 10 years as a Bandit concurrent with his employment as a commercial pilot. Paco is currently a 737 captain.

Paco is also the creator and producer of the award-winning naval aviation documentary “Speed and Angels”. Paco has written articles for various international and domestic magazines. He is currently revising the first draft of his debut novel, a naval aviation thriller.

Paco has the standard panoply of medals and ribbons but his proudest accomplishment is the Top Nugget award for landing grades from his first deployment.

I know he will work very hard to bring you some great articles in the future.
