Interesting article.

Quoting afa.org:
The Air Force is making major changes to the way it trains and distributes many of its combat pilots, and the F-22 Raptor is the centerpiece of the overhaul.

The short of it is: The Air Force will emphasize using the F-22 in the role it is most dominant in - air superiority. Mud moving puts the airplane in an environment it was designed for and increases the risk of loss of plane and pilot.

Interesting article.

However, it does make sense to have pilots trained in Air Superiority (F-15C) to move onto the aircraft designed to compliment/replace; and to have F-15E, F-16 and A-10 pilots to move onto the F-35, which is slated to replace 2 of those three a/c types (F-16 and A-10).

Agreed. I felt this way when I first heard that the mud movers were going to get the F-22 slots. I thought the F-15C was the natural choice. Glad to see they are making more sense now.
