Great job. Most of those were right except one, which was my fault anyway, it was my wording that was screwed up. I was talking about a CF air station outside Cananda, such as CF air station Alviano, Italy. Also, advanced fighter training is wiht 410 Sqn at 4 Wing at Cold Lake Alberta. Basic jet training is in 15 Wing Moose Jaw, and 416 Lynx and 439 Tiger Sqns were known as the "Desert Cats" during the gulf war. They did bombing missions in Kuwait and Iraq.

Umm.....dude.

'If you are selected to fly Fighter or Training aircraft, you will remain in Moose Jaw at the NATO Flying Training Centre to take additional training on the Harvard II. After this additional training, you will then transition to the British Aerospace Hawk jet aircaft.'

Straight out of the CFRC site for MOC 32 (Pilot)

I see... I suppose you can't really argue with an instructor going the CF-18 training. Now that I think of it, the CFRC's seem to not tell the truth VERY often.
