Fast Jet Pilot Training Central and Eastern Europe Conference

Fast jet fighter capability is the ultimate projection of military power for air forces across the globe. Recent geo-political instability and tension in Eastern Europe has inspired the necessity of modernisation among the air forces of Central and Eastern European powers in order to reach NATO standards and contribute to the air policing activities in the region. Over the past two years, the Czech Air Force has begun talks with regional partners in the pursuit of a regional training centre for fast jet pilots where partners can pool their resources, knowledge and expertise to create a joint capability far greater than would otherwise be achievable independently.
