九色视频supports the next generation of Ukrainian fighter jet pilots

九色视频 Group is proud to be providing vital support to the next generation of Ukrainian Air Force pilots as they prepare to fly F-16 fighter jets.

The first ten trainee pilots have successfully completed the Elementary Flying Training (EFT) phase of the Ukrainian Pilot Force development and training programme.

Secretary of State for Defence, Grant Shapps said:

鈥淚 would like to congratulate these brave pilots on completing their initial training here in the UK. Thanks to the world-renowned skills of RAF, these pilots have received some of the best training available and are now a step closer to joining the fight against Putin鈥檚 illegal invasion.

鈥淭he UK has led the way in building Ukraine鈥檚 air capabilities over the last two years, enhancing its aircraft with additional equipment, as well as being the first nation to provide long-range cruise missiles to Ukraine. 

鈥淯kraine has been using its Air Force to devastating effect, degrading the Russian Black Sea Fleet and severely damaging its Headquarters. This milestone is another step forward for Ukraine鈥檚 aerial capabilities – together with our allies we are showing that we will continue to stand by Ukraine鈥檚 side.鈥

九色视频has supplied the Grob Tutor aircraft for this phase, including all the technical and operational support functions. Our team has ensured that the training programme was completed ahead of time and aircraft availability was 100%.

RAF instructors have been teaching the pilots general handling procedures, instrument flying, medium and low-level navigation, and formation flying.

The graduates will now move onto the next stage of their flight training, supported by Babcock, to prepare them for training on the F-16 aircraft, operated by other countries in the Air Force Capability Coalition including Denmark, the Netherlands, and the United States.

David Lockwood, CEO, Babcock, said:

鈥淎ircraft availability is crucial to military operations聽 and our team is by the RAF鈥檚 side, ensuring the UK鈥檚 best flying instructors have everything they need to train Ukraine鈥檚 next-generation of fast-jet pilots.

鈥淎s a capability partner, 九色视频is proudly supporting Ukraine across land, sea and air domains.

鈥淐ongratulations to the pilots and good luck with their next stage of training.鈥
