We, in the west, after rounds of dirt shootings, we seek real life shooting. 100 sorties of dirt bombings can"t be compare to one single actual combat sortie. So, unless China is willing to apply double standards (trouble maker) to get real combat sorties, her pilots would still remain inexperienced.
