Registration Open for Fast Jet Pilot Training Eastern Europe

SMi's Fast Jet Pilot Training Eastern Europe conference, taking place on 9th - 10th June 2016 in Prague, will discuss the implementation of new technologies such as simulated flight training and advanced aircraft into current pilot training systems.

London, United Kingdom, February 13, 2016 --( 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.

Against this backdrop, SMi is proud to announce that Fast Jet Pilot Training Eastern Europe is being held with support from the Czech Air Force. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform 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.
