Fort Lauderdale, FL, January 31, 2014 --(PR.com)-- AeroGroup Incorporated (AeroGroup), a leading provider of tactical pilot training, completes the F-16 Pilot Training Contract with the Air Education and Training Command (AETC) for the Belgian Air Force, Belgian Air Component.

The contract was successfully concluded in December 2013.

AeroGroup supplied a deployed Mobile Training Team (MTT) of F-16 instructor pilots that were specifically familiar with the Mid-Life-Upgrade (“MLU”) version F-16 aircraft that are operated by European Participating Air Forces (EPAF). The training program was conducted and based at Kleine Brogel Air Base, Belgium.

We were the first and only private commercial company to perform these services since 2003, and now with more than a decade of excellent past performance, we are a well-positioned industry leader to offer our services to other F-16 customers that have needed training requirements. There are now approximately 25 plus countries operating the F-16 and more are looking to transition to this great capable fighter aircraft.”
