Fast Jet Pilot Training Central and Eastern Europe - 27/02/2017

Registration opens for Central and Eastern Europe's Leading Fast Jet Pilot Training Event

The Czech Air Forces' second annual Fast Jet Pilot Training Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) conference will return to Prague this summer, on the 5th and 6th June 2017. Book by 31st March to save £200!

With growing external threats to national and regional security, the Czech Air Force hope to become leaders in fast jet pilot training, and as such have begun talks with regional partners in the pursuit of a training centre for fast jet pilots, where they can pool their resources, knowledge and expertise to create a joint capability far greater than would otherwise be achievable independently.

Official Event Partner Czech Air Force: “Our goal is simple, to promote enhanced cooperation for Central and Eastern European fighter jet pilots and standardize the level of training to ensure successful future domestic and joint operations.” Major General Jaromír Šebesta, Commander, Czech Air Force
