she finished flight training #6 out of 60. flying an F-16 at age 20 takes lots of smarts and coordination. when i was 20 best i could do was play a pin ball machine. i do not think we have any women 'combat' fighter pilots. we do have women who fly jets but i do not think they will let them fly combat. i guess our culture is not ready for one of our ladies to be taken prisoner. actually, during WW II we had women who transported all kinds of A/C including P-51's which took a lot of leg strength to fly due to the tremendous torque generated by the engine. no hydraulic boost to help you. i guess the women in Israel are ground combatants also.
