Military Flight Training Conference

The battlefield of today is very different from the past. To be able to overcome the challenges of a more fluid, modern warfare, a successful military force requires effective and high quality training for its air force. Even though we are in an era of global spending cuts and consolidation, air force pilots must still be at the top of their game.

Air force pilots must be flexible and be able to keep pace with changes in warfare tactics. As a result, military simulation and virtual training systems have become an extremely important factor for the training of a modern and advanced military force, with military flight training moving towards a balanced mix of live training and simulator training, allowing for timely and accurate response times.

We are proud to present the 4th annual Military Flight Training Conference, 16th-17th September 2015, London. Through a series of interactive presentations, panel discussions and roundtables, Military Flight Training will feature timely discussions on how simulation systems can provide realistic mission training in a safe environment. In addition, discover how to stretch and grow your pilots to face the demands of the future. With an in depth analysis of latest political, economic and technological trends discussed by industry leaders, this is an event you do not want to miss!
