The Romanian pilot flying for the NATO-supported Strategic Airlift Capability programme

Meet Lieutenant Commander Simona Maierean, a pilot with the NATO-supported Strategic Airlift Capability (SAC) programme. Simona is part of a multinational team from 12 NATO member and partner nations who have flown several missions to deliver medical supplies and equipment to Allies and other countries in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

SAC funds three C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft, based out of Pápa Air Base in Hungary. Flight hours are used for national defence, NATO, European Union and humanitarian missions
