On video: Do ​​not refuse to enlist in the reserves: "Continue to defend the country with sorties and protests" (Knesset Channel)

The first commander of the 69th fighter squadron, Col. (ret.) Dror Ben David, who trained some of the reserve pilots who are threatening not to show up for training due to the legal revolution, came out yesterday (Monday) in their defense. "When I was little, they sent me to learn to fly F15E planes in the United States


On the second flight, the guide told me we would be flying at night, along the Appalachian Mountains.

It seemed crazy to me.

A second flight on a plane you don't know yet, endless mountain ranges, in the middle of the night, at a speed of 800 km/h. I learned that it is possible and I can," he wrote on his Facebook account.

"When I returned to Israel, we led a "capability flight" - the pilots and navigators were given a mission to fly at a very low altitude, in the middle of the night, at 800 km/h, into the hermetic darkness of the Arabian Sea.

Not sure if there will be a malfunction, whether the fuel will be enough, and whether the navigation pod will not disappoint.

After this flight - everyone knows they can go anywhere in the world," he added.

"There needs to be trust in Aviron and its systems, as well as full trust in the decision-making processes."

He also wrote: "I always thought to myself, why do the air crews agree to do this? After all, every error of a thousandth of a second, every malfunction at low altitude at night - could end in abandonment or cause premature death. Well, there needs to be trust in Avron and its systems, professionalism - and complete trust in the decision-making processes. The teams need to have absolute trust in the commanders, and absolute loyalty to the values ​​and the bodies that are authorized to make decisions."

"It takes at least five years to train a 'Ream' pilot. It takes 23 years to trust him. A minister who calls for the burning of a village - should be fired immediately. Two ministers in the Ministry of Defense - this will inevitably undermine security in the decision-making processes. Israel, in the coming generations, will need more Many actions of soldier heroes. Without trust, faith, and loyalty - this will not be possible. Prime Minister, dear ministers - do not harm this," Ben David signed the post.
