Military Flight Training Conference

25 March, 2014 - 27 March, 2014, London, United Kingdom

The Military Flight Training Community’s Annual General Meeting For The Discussion Of Military Fixed Wing And Rotary Flight Training Requirements, Capabilities And Technologies

Over its 13 year history Military Flight Training has become the community’s Annual General Meeting, bringing together over 160 Chiefs of Staff, Commanders of Air Training, Heads of Air Procurement, and Operational Trainers and industry executives from across the globe to discuss the challenges and success shaping military flight training for now and the future.

In doing so it provides a rare platform to share lessons learned and best practice in current military flight training requirements, capabilities and programmes, engaging in international collaboration on a very real level with key allies and strengthen the message of cooperation with counterparts across the world.

Military Flight Training is organized with the support and direction of Senior Leaders from across the military and industry sectors of the flight training community. With this in mind, each presentation topic and guest speaker has been specifically selected inline with the priorities and recommendations of the community to ensure it provides attends with the critical information they need to solve their daily flight training challenges.
