We have been buying new airplanes and military vehicles which we have seen transported through the country but we have recently been trying to get our don into the air force to become a pilot and they said that the flying hours would be minimal because there are a lack of planes and helicopters.....funny because where did the fleet that we saw get sent to? Are we providing stock to another country?

I'm sure you can find what hardware is being bought and for who. That should be public information. That being said minimal flight hours can be due to many factors but often it's the maintenance and aircraft safety limits.

we have been looking for our son to join a school to do pilot license but it appears that this is an expensive career and he will have to go through the military to train.
