If Maverick is an instructor in a RAG for the Super Hornet, then he's in only one of two places: NAS Oceana, VA with the VFA-106 or NAS Lemoore, CA with the VFA-122. If I were a betting man I would say NAS Lemoore for the canyon hugging action of the previous movie and its proximity to Hollywood. For the UAS, maybe the X-47B with all of the footage of its carrier takeoff and landings and inflight refueling that the studios could get cheap from the Navy. It would show that such systems can operate around a carrier and will have a future in the Navy's fighter role.

Another more likely scenario is the SH is playing Red Air just as the A-4 Skyhawk did in the original movie.

I'd love to see Phoebe Waller-Bridge kind of reprise her involvement as the voice of the UCAV protagonist in this based upon her role as L3-37  in Solo:  A Star Wars Story  ;D

Tom Cruise sparks 'Top Gun' feud between US Air Force, Navy

Quote
In a clear dig aimed at its friendly rivals, the Air Force's official account posted Cruise's photo with a caption that mocks Maverick's Navy jet -- itself an upgrade over the F-14 Tomcat he pilots in the original film -- as inferior to its own F-15 Strike Eagle.
"If Maverick really had a need for speed, he could hop into one of our F-15E Strike Eagles! #DYK: They have a top speed of 1,875 miles per hour," it said, touting the Air Force's own 1980s-era jet that has long been hailed as the most successful dog-fighting aircraft in US history -- tallying more than 100 aerial combat victories, according to Boeing, the plane's primary contractor and developer.
The Navy responded by simply tweeting, "Remember, boys, no points for second place" -- an ode to one of the movie's more memorable quotes.
Not to be outdone, the Air Force again leaned on the F-15's dog-fighting prowess with a reference to the aircraft's undefeated air-to-air combat record: "The F-15 knows nothing about this "second place" thing you speak of. Check the scoreboard! #Undefeated."

Top Gun- Maverick, working under the project's code name, 'Island Plaza,' has received $21 million in tax credits from the State of California for filming 75% or more in the state. Film locations are expected in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Northern California.

Also, Maverick's new earthbound ride is a Ninja H2-R.

Combining all of the 'evidence' that I've read so far, one narrative is that Maverick is now Commander of Top Gun (i.e. the previous role of Viper) and becomes the sage to Goose's son Wrigley (a mentoring role that was seen between Maverick and Viper in the original Top Gun). Wrigley competes for the coveted Top Gun patch while pursuing the driven loner Sugar. (I assume that Sugar is another Top Gun student). Maverick, whose own love interest is Penny Bengamin, whom Maverick said he went 'ballistic' with in the first movie, has his own love interest and becomes a subplot to the story. Maverick is now confronted with introducing a new syllabus into Top Gun that integrates UCAVs into the curriculum: Combined Manned and UCAV fleet protection. This would involve flights in support of or being supported by UCAVs and defensive air operations against UCAVs. Iceman maybe head of UCAV program management or ground operator training and UCAV ACM tactics. Key elements to the story line would be the pilots inability to sustain high-g maneuvers with a UCAV and the pilot's slight advantage in resolving maneuvering solutions in close ACM with tighter OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide, and Act) cycles. In the end Maverick and Wrigley get their respective girl's and UCAV becomes the star of the movie.
