Did You Know?

Goofs

Filmmakers might not know that navy fliers are not called "Navy pilots", but rather "naval aviators", as seen in some of the between-scene titling. This is a distinction of great dignity to naval aviators who see themselves better fliers than other branch "pilots". See more »

Following the beginning of two US Navy F-14 pilots careers.
18 May 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is very realistic and very accurate as to what these pilots go through.

The movie shows the life of two new fighter pilots, one male, the other female, who undergo training to fly F-14 Tomcats for the US Navy. The director effectively portrays the trials and struggles of not just getting accepted into a naval aviator program, but also the difficulties, physically and emotionally, of being a fully trained pilot, on the seas, away from friends and family.

This documentary was filmed in approximately 2003-2006 period, couple years after the start of the US/Iraq Conflict in the Middle East. This movie has always been enjoyable to watch with great visuals and sound, as well as all the interviews that were integrated into the movie that has created a documentary film without a narrator.
