No DOUBT that Egypt is stronger than the GCC also better trained not a single doubt in my mind about it. I am not the type of person going on "WE ARE THE BEST HERP DERP". Egypt has the most potential I agree with you. But I disagree that you say Saudi pilots are bad and whatever I am sure you read the "Paper tiger minus the tiger" blog which I saw was pure comedy because he does not know half of what he is talking about but google brings him up so people tend to read that. About Maintenance we already have full squadrons that are fully "Saudized" sure when the quick change happened there was some problems but it was taken care of since then. In fact Saudi military schools is a destination now for Arab countries to enlist their students in. And just a couple of months ago there was news of Helicopter training schools are made up entirely of Saudi trainers and teachers so in time all this hard work will come into effect.
I never said Saudi pilots were bad however I said Egypt pilots are better experienced and trained.
