BRUSSELS, June 4 (UPI)

 

Training of European military transport aircrews is being conducted in Spain by the European Defense Agency.

 

The European Air Transport Training course, hosted by the Spanish air force, began Monday and will continue until June 15 at Zaragoza. It brings together tactical air transport assets from six countries and is part of an EDA initiative for sharing and pooling assets.

The training exercise and course mixes on-the-ground training and flight operations, which will allow crews to train and qualify together in specific airlift disciplines, such as advanced mission planning; cargo and personnel airdrops; tactical navigation; threat reactions; and tactical air-land operations.

 

"The main value of such a training is to effectively fly the techniques, tactics and procedures that were developed and to get used to flying together," said EDA Assistant Manager Laurent Donnet.
