Expanded training enables combat success

Two F-35As Lightning II taxi prior to taking off for an expanded Lightning Top Off Course Jan. 29, 2018, at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The two week expanded LiTOC included combat aircraft from the U.S. Navy and Air Force in a large force exercise aimed at providing F-35A pilots with experience before entering the Combat Air Force. During the expanded LiTOC, pilots receive half of the flights required to complete mission qualification training, drastically reducing their training timeline.
