In 2021, Top Aces became the first private company in the world to acquire the F-16, which is considered by many to be the most agile fighter aircraft of its generation. Its superior speed, acceleration, maneuverability, small visual and radar signature, and ability to integrate advanced sensors and threat systems have made it the aircraft of choice for the USAF and USN Aggressor fleets since 1988.
In January 2022, Top Aces upgraded its powerful legacy F-16 airframe with its proprietary Advanced Aggressor Mission System, fielding the first high performance, threat-representative adversary capable of supporting the 5th generation warfighter.
