Pristina - The NATO-led KFOR mission conducted a multi aircraft training flight, with six helicopters from the Croatian, Swiss and United States contingents.
The exercise which aimes on standardising mission planning and execution procedures, in flight drills and communications, took off from Slatina Military Airport, before overflying Camp Bondsteel, Prizren, Peja/ Pec, Slatina Airport and Pristina and finally landed in Camp Film City KFOR HQ. The exercise ensured that KFOR remains a robust military force, ready to act as a credible deterrent against any threats and maintains its capabilities to perform emergency medical evacuation flights at all time.
The NATO-led KFOR mission is a multinational contingent with 27 NATO members and partner nations represented. This international dimension brings increased capabilities and competencies. Constant training and exercising is required in order to ensure that all contingents operate in a standardised manner, ensuring KFOR’s ability to respond in accordance with the UNSC 1244 resolution, to any challenges to a safe and secure environment or freedom of movement in a fast and efficient way, by air or by land.
