I thought there is at least one ACSO on every aircraft.......fighter, helicopter, jet.

You were thinking wrong.

Can you tell me where the ACSO fits in that aircraft?

Because pilots need adult supervision?   >:D


Nah!  It's more for morale puposes.  Whenever the pilot is having a really sh!tty day he can look at the ACSO and think, "At least I'm not him."  ;D

In the seat, while a pilot flies the jet remotely via Tampa, using TCDL TCS Level 5?

Please.  We (and our Sensor Operators) will be the ones in Tampa/Creech/on a US carrier, flying them while the fast-jet Pilots wonder where their jobs went  ;)

*OK, maybe not on a US Carrier.  Yet.
