...I think the story opened with an alien attack on a human military convoy, one of the characters is burned badly and after recovering eventually becomes a pilot; he can't work the controls due to his injuries so he has to yell "fire, fire, fire" to operate the jet's weapons...these two other characters, a man and woman, are both eventually selected to join the elite pilots though the man underperforms and is there basically because other more qualified pilots are killed...he's jealous of his female friend's success as a pilot...if I remember right he sacrifices himself at the end in the culminating battle...
