Founded in the 1980s, this training programme was created to help NATO Allies share the cost of training fighter pilots and ensure that working together became part of the DNA of Allied air operations.

Today, 14 Allies send students and instructors to the programme, including Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Türkiye, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The instructors are exhaustive in their feedback because the difference between success and failure could be the difference between life and death. As Rob Kunzig finds out, this isn’t a job for the faint of heart (or stomach).
