In an era of dwindling budget and increased deployments, military flight training organisations will need to be much more creative and reassess their structure to overcome challenges and align more closely with the Civil Aviation regulations.
Speaking at SMi’s Military Flight Training conference this October, Major (Retd.) Peter Dean, Director of St Andrew’s Aviation will be hosting a workshop to share the UK’s Perspective of military helicopter flight training.
Participants of the workshop will receive insights on the recent transformation of UK military flying training, and explore the development of Competency Based Training in the RAF. The challenges of applied flying training in complex environments will be analysed. Delegates will also have a chance to deliberate the cost and benefits of different aircraft types and systems for flight training. Key discussions points include:
– Aircraft Selection for Military Flight Training
– Training Methodology in Military Flight Training
– Applied Training for Military Skills
– Case Study – UK Military Flying Training System (UK MFTS)
