Who do you reckon are the best Air Force

#1
This might stir up a little, but in your humble opinions, who do you reckon are the most professional air forces at their respective jobs?

Not talking quanties or anything but engineering/flying abilities.

Cheers

FAA, their runways move.

moving runways surely a bad thing? fine if you're taking the fight to the enemy but what if you're not too hot on the whole "navigation" or "landing" thing. Also being FAA that's one very small step away from being a sailor...

Yeah but it's crab air who serve on board more than the fish heads do 8O
Not more, no. On the two remaining carriers, they supply the fixed wing.

Which is of no help if the people you're supposed to be helping are more than 200 miles inland.

Would you chaps care to be more specific? Are you talking about quality of toys/quality of people/size/particular roles/felxibility?

people, engineering, pilot skills etc

Personally I think crab air are second to none in low level ops and the jocks always give good acount of themselves in theatre and in ops like red flag.
Engineering is much the same albeit at much stretched man power levels than say USAF

Aye with some nice host nation support then? Always possible?

The Israeli Air Force is meant to be pretty fcuking professional. Guess you've got to be when an enemy can cross the length of your country in 15 minutes... There again the IDF as a whole are meant to be pretty damned switched-on, they've always beat coalitions of 5-8 Arab countries - huge American support though.

Plus the IAF have got ownership of Israels attack helos, support helos, UAVs, naval air etc. If Israel has naval air? Not saying it should be that way but their empire has been successful enough to push the IDF Army out of Army aviation...
