The Eurofighter is considered by many as today's premier European made fighter aircraft and overall one of the best fighter aircraft in the world.

Pilots report that the Eurofighter is "exhilarating to fly" with high maneuverability. The twin EJ200 turbofan engines combine light weight, high thrust, and low fuel consumption.

Eurofighter aircraft are being deployed throughout Europe and in Saudi Arabia.

George Garr of Las Vegas, NV writes:
"I built the 30" rc  Eurofighter from the Parkjets plans It flies easily, and has a very light wing loading. The ailerons are effective and the elevator is not overly sensitive. It does all the aerobatics, but what it does best is fly very slowly with a nose high attitude."
