editor’s sat down and hashed out the Top 5 Fighter Det (Detachment) locations. We know we got it right from our perspective–but what about yours?

One of the best things about flying fighters: The Fighter Det. Getting away from home base and being able to concentrate on training, plus having a few beers (…or 7) with your squadron buddies on liberty is what it’s all about. Maybe the per diem helps out a little bit also.

A Fighter Det makes you a better aviator for several reasons: you’ve got to learn new course rules, you improve your flying skills in a different area, and most importantly you are concentrating on becoming tactical.

However, the best part is the camaraderie you build with your fellow aviators. Whether it is out at the O’Club for a post flight debrief and some beers or heading out to the local steak joint to play “credit card roulette”, the friendships you build while on Det last a lifetime.

So we present to you our “Official” Top 5 list of Fighter Det locations because we know you wanted to know, right?   Tell us where we got it right and where we got it wrong!
