As students at the US Navy’s elite fighter school compete to be best in the class, one daring young pilot learns a few things from a civilian instructor that are not taught in the classroom.
Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is sent to Miramar for advanced training. Here he vies with Tom Kasansky (Val Kilmer) for the coveted “Top Gun” award. Maverick struggles to be the best pilot, stepping on the toes of his other students, struggling with his father’s death and distracted by Charlie Blackwood, the enticing civilian instructor. Worried he may have lost his nerve, Mitchell is given a chance to redeem himself during a tense international crisis involving a crippled US vessel and the deadly Mig fighter jet.
