Military Flight Training 2019 Conference

Delivering the next generation air force


London, United Kingdom

Ensuring operational readiness of aircrew for current and future operating environments

The way we train our tactical aircrew has reached crossroads - not only do we need to develop COIN capabilities to support the suppression of terrorism and insurgency - pilots and aircrew must now sustain readiness for potential near-peer conflict and learn to operate in contested and degraded environments.

Concurrent with today's operational context, MFT 2019 will discuss key challenge areas such as: training for contested and degraded environments, delivering LVC in mixed inventories of new and legacy platforms, solving red air deficiency, understanding how LVC interoperability will be delivered, rotary training, recruitment & retention, operational conversion training and crew resource management.

Attracting over 250 military and industry attendees from over 40 nations, MFT 2019 arrives at a time where guaranteeing air superiority and strike capability has never been tougher. We very much hope that you will join the discussion in London, 26 - 29 March.
