Aerial Refuelling Flight Test Course

January 7, 2021

Back at work at the International Test Pilots School! Aerial Refuelling Flight Tests module kicked off this week. A bespoke course of training for our friends the Republic of Korea Air Force. The ITPS fighter simulator once again proving its worth with sorties flown with drogue and boom tanker systems. The lectures were delivered online under our COVID-19 operations policy, however, this allowed a number of international experts to contribute to the theoretical instruction.
