Training is starting on Marchetti SF260 single engine aircraft. After that basic training, pilots may choose between heli training or jet training (on Alphajet). Finally, jet pilots can be converted to transport (C130, E135, F900,...) or jet fighter (F-16).
At the BeSOG, we act with a quite similar structure, although the training is not mandatory (except the ab-initio test) and is done in a very simple and modular way.
The main structure of the training is established as follows:
ATC training is obviously separate and consist in two parts:
|Unit||Aircraft type||National callsign||International callsign|
|CCAir 5Sqn||Marchetti SF260||HS12-HS40 (HARDSHIP)
|CCAir 9Sqn||Marchetti SF260||CS41-CS61 (COWSLIP)
|1W / 15Sqn Heli Training (OCTU)||Agusta A109||ATNA901-ATNA999 (ATHENA)||BAF300-BAF349|
|1W / 11Sqn Jet Training||Alphajet||ROBIN51-ROBIN79||BAF100-BAF149|
|10W / F16 conversion (OCU)||F-16B||BASIC41-BASIC69 (day)
TBAS (TANGO BASIC, first solo)
|15W Tpt / Transport aircraft conversion||A321 / ERJ / F900||BAF600-BAF699|
