Fox News Media’s politically-themed subscription streaming VOD service, Fox Nation, is set to debut “Top Combat Pilot,” a new four-part series hosted by actor Dennis Quaid on Nov. 6.

Based in Yuma, Arizona, the series will feature an inside look at the Marines’ weapons and tactics instructor (WTI) course, described as the most elite aviation program in America and the Marines’ version of the Navy’s renowned “Top Gun school.”

The series follows 25 of the best combat pilots from every squadron in the country as they train with an air fleet that includes F-18 Hornets and Huey and Cobra combat helicopters. The top performers seek to distinguish themselves and be invited back as a WTI instructor.

“Dennis Quaid not only played a pilot in the iconic movie The Right Stuff, but he is also a licensed pilot — we couldn’t think of a better person to host this series,” Jason Klarman, president of Fox Nation, said in a statement.
