How easy is to fly a F-16?

It seems even a Jordan princess can do it.

    I'm an Eagle guy, not a Viper guy. Flying a fighter is, in short, not easy. Happy to answer actual questions.

          Wonder how these Frenchmen didn't knock themselves out when they were pushing their Rafales to 11G.

      if you just want to fly (get in the air, go somewhere, get back down, not die) a modern 4th+ gen fighter it's absolutely piss easy and you could teach a middle schooler to do it. What's hard is doing all the other shit that a fighter pilot is required to do.

    nato planes are piss easy to learn and fly

    anyone can learn up how to program a JSOW/JDAM, it's a simple step by step process but learning how to use it in combat is the hard part

    learning how to use your tools effectively is 90% of the training in any branch

      Where does "crashing a plane with no survivors" fall on the difficulty scale?

        It would be extremely painful

    The hardest part is getting to the point where you get to actually fly an F-16

      Jordan is one of those places in the British sphere of influence like Oman that have magically turned into nice countries instead of anywhere saudi or russian supported.

      Well, it's not a fricking car for starters. I assume fighter jets were not invented when the Quran was written.

    It's pretty easy if you spend your free time in the simulator. All us Air Force brats can get time in the simulator if no one else is scheduled to use it. My dad is colonel and has even snuck me up to fly in his F-16 a few times. I'm trying really hard to get accepted to the Air Force Academy, but I've been missing my dad who's deployed right now flying missions over the Med.

      At Beecher AFB? Is your name Doug? I heard there was kid named Doug from the Eagles Flying Club who beat Knotcher flying The Snake. Is it true you have three times as many hours in the simulator as any Falcon pilot at Beecher?

    Considering the F-16s maiden flight was originally just supposed to be a simple taxiing test before the plane decided otherwise, I'd reckon its pretty damn easy to get one in the air. And thanks to the ejection system you don't even have to worry about landing the damn thing

    Probably the hardest thing about flying a modern jet is getting used to all the counter-intuitive wienerpit controls. There’s this civilian plane pilot who makes videos of just him flying places — and I swear 99% of the time was just fiddling with the radio, ie, punching in frequencies, sending messages, etc. He barely even touches the flight controls. It’s story of like, take off, climb, set cruise control and then screw around with the radio as required. Flying a modern combat jet is very probably similar, and only gets challenging if you have to do something like do dogfight training, landing in poor conditions, tree-top flying, etc. The most involved part of flying I bet is doing all the pre-flight checks and processes for taking off / landing.

        I looked that up. Astronauts drink coffee in space. They even have a machine called ISSpresso.
