there doesn't seem to be any jet fighters in CE which led to me being unable to play one since the GM is only allowing stuff from the CE books. we have the jet fighter skill but nothing to use it on, what would be options.

there are no jet fighters because the atmosphere is so choked with volcanic ash that aircraft were grounded on day one of the cataclysm. a condition that would remain for months or years given the conditions and the way ash stays in the atmosphere. anything that needs to be more than a few hundred feet off the ground in flight is just a no-go. and even the relatively ground skimming hovercraft and SAMAS units were grounded for the first several weeks because of the ash fall.

the jet skill being still in there is largely an artifact of palladium's cut and past skill section. they have a lot of skills that are largely useless, and are missing skills that would be important to have. because the book basically just copies the rifts skill section with anything rifts specific cut out.

We do have examples of pre-Rifts aircraft in the Underseas book. The New Navy has two jets, one also goes underwater. But these would be rare and as was said before not be able to fly in the months after the apocalypse.
