Registration is now live for SMi’s 5th annual Military Flight Training conference which takes place on the 21st and 22nd September 2016 in London, UK.

With the current focus and more than a billion pounds being invested by the Ministry of Defence to continue the modernisation of military flying training in the UK, SMi’s 5th annual Military Flight Training conference provides the perfect platform to network with peers to discuss the latest national approaches to training, as well as the development of modern technologies to meet current and future complex mission scenarios faced by today’s pilots from fast fighters to multi-engine fixed wing aircraft.

"The new Fixed Wing flying training system will provide modern training aircraft as well as up-to-date ground based training devices such as simulators and classroom learning for aircrew across the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm and Army Air Corps.

A £1.1 billion contract has been placed with Ascent Flight Training to design, deliver and manage the Fixed Wing training service until 2033". *(Source)
