U.S. Air Force Veterans in Congress introduced legislation to train Ukrainian fighter pilots and crews on US military air assets.

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger and Democratic Congressman Chrissy Hulahan have introduced Ukraine Fighter Pilots Act.

This was reported by Congressman Adam Kinsinger reported on his official page. Later he posted on Twitter a joint photo with the pilots of the Air Force of Ukraine.

The bill would allow the United States to begin training Ukrainian pilots and technical personnel on F-15s, F-16s and other aircraft, while the United States continues to consider sending such weapons to Ukraine.

According to congressmen, it is very important for the Ukrainian military to be trained and familiar with these air platforms if Russia continues its war against Ukraine.

This program will strengthen Ukraine's capabilities and ensure their long-term stability and security, regardless of whether the United States and its allies transfer such equipment.

"Because this conflict continues to rage on, we need to rethink our long-term strategic planning to help our Ukrainian allies-this includes training pilots on additional aircraft that might become available to them. It's simple: should our military decide to transfer aircraft, we need their pilots to be ready to utilize them immediately. Our bipartisan effort will ensure that training happens", - said Rep. Houlahan.
