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 programme 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.
