Military Flight Training 2020 Conference

The World's Premier Military Flight Training Conference

London, United Kingdom

Military Flight Training: Equipping Aircrew of the Future

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, Military Flight Training 2020 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, Military Flight Training 2020 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, 31 March - 02 April, 2020.
