Conference Documentation: Fast Jet Pilot Training Eastern Europe

Conference Documentation: Fast Jet Pilot Training Eastern Europe

A fast jet fighter capability is the mainstay of any air force; the ability to defend and control airspace is of paramount importance to any nation. Countries with smaller air forces are looking to improve interoperability to maximise the effectiveness of their jet fighter fleets. Furthermore the Czech Air Force has announced it is actively seeking to establish an international training centre for regional pilots to meet that very demand with support from NATO by 2018.

SMi group is proud to announce Fast jet Pilot Training Eastern Europe with support from the Czech Air Force. The event will be held in Prague on the 9th and 10th June to discuss the implementation of new technologies such as simulated flight training and new advanced trainer aircraft into current pilot training systems for improved interoperability amongst regional partners as well as conversion to more modern fighter jets in the wake of higher operational demands.
