    Chinese Top Guns

    China's Golden Helmet competition is modeled on the US Top Gun school, which was defunded in 1996 by the US Navy and no longer exists. Source: An Era Ends in San Diego as Navy's Top Guns Take Off | Los Angeles Times

    Chinese Golden Helmet pilots are the new Top Guns.

    China uses VR for 3D pilot flight training

    Elite Chinese pilots receive 200 hours per year of actual flight training. Supplementary training is provided by VR. In contrast, the average American pilot receives only 120 hours per year of flight training.
