Introductory Fighter Course is a 14 week course conducted by No. 79 Squadron from RAAF Base Pearce, WA. Domestic deployments and training at alternative airfields is an essential part of training on fast jet aircraft to enable pilots to operate from different operating environments.
 
Flying is subject to change due to variables such as air traffic control requirements, weather and other aviation considerations.
 
Noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military flying. Air Force appreciates the ongoing support of the community during these training activities.
