What's new for 2013?
In order to ensure Military Flight Training continues to maintain its status as the community’s conference, each year it adapts the needs and demands of the community itself. 2013 is no different, we are very excited for what we have in store:
Following the success of the 2012 summit’s focus on the flight training 2020+, we decided to give the 2013 event a new flavour. For the 1st time Military Flight Training will have an overarching theme of ‘Training in an Emerging Market’ making it the most international conference to date. For the 1st time the conference will have insight from all 4 corners of the globe with presentations from such nations as the UAE Air Force, Iraqi Air Force, Brazilian Air Force and Australian Army.
